"CALIFORNIA" (1947) Review

I am a history nut. And one of my favorite historical periods that I love to study is the Antebellum Era of the United States. One of my favorite topics from this period is the California Gold Rush. I also love movies. But despite this love, I have been constantly disappointed by Hollywood's inability to create a first-rate movie about Gold Rush.

I may have to take back my comment about Hollywood's inability to produce a first-rate movie or television production about the Gold Rush. There were at least three that managed to impress me. Unfortunately, the latest film...

Barbara Stanwyck was born on July 16th. She lives on...in the movies and in our hearts. I'm happy to see her fans are growing in numbers on this website!

Barbara had an amazing imagination...she was able to visualize goals, scenes in life and place herself in those life scenes. Of course she was beautiful as well...and good to people. There are many other awesome qualities she had...and all these attributes came together in one person to create a legend.

Barbara, Ruby ( her given name) continues to inspire me and I am learning more & more how to use my imagination to create a fulfilling reality. TCM celebrates July 16th...Happy Birthday, Barbara!

How do I love thee, Barbara? Let me count the ways.

Barbara Stanwyck is a legend. More than that she personifies what is womanly, mysterious, glorious, imaginative, beautiful, strong, enduring, endearing, powerful, magical, fun, optimistic in life and in theatre. Not one to display theatrics or uncontrolled emotions when accepting awards on stage in front of an audience, Barbara Stanwyck is a fine inspiration and role model for women.

I think women accepting Academy Awards, Golden Globes, or other 'gongs' today should look at a video of Barbara before they go to any award ceremony. These women...

January 20th, 2014 marks 24 years since Barbara passed away. Barbara, we - the fans, miss you. I'm marking the occasion with a link to a great new biography written about Barbara, a 1000 page plus beautiful, descriptive hard cover book called Barbara Stanwyck - Steel True - Volume One written by Victoria Wilson. The thick volume, covering years from 1907 - 1940 has black & white photos throughout. I love this book! An excellent reference regarding all movies Barbara made as well as plays, radio shows and much more. We love you, Barbara.

"TITANIC" (1953) Review

As many moviegoers know, there have been numerous film and television productions about the maiden voyage and sinking of the R.M.S. Titanic on April 15, 1912. The most famous production happens to be James Cameron's 1997 Oscar winning opus. However, I do wonder if there are any fans who are aware that another Titanic movie managed to strike Oscar gold.

Directed by Jean Negulesco, the 1953 movie "TITANIC" focused on the personal lives of a wealthy American family torn asunder by marital strife, a deep secret and the historic sinking of the Titanic. Family matriarch Mrs....
