Many Thanks to Dawn of Noir and Chick Flicks!
I am thrilled to be one of 7 classic movie blogs to have been awarded Dawn's Stylish Blogger Award. Dawn has always created beautiful blog designs of her own, and I value her opinion. Dawn is a prolific blogger who enjoys and follows over 40 classic film blogs. She has asked her winners to tell 7 personal things of their choice about themselves, and I am happy to oblige:
If I were stranded on a desert island and could have only one movie, I would choose Captain Blood (or The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, or 42nd Street -- well, it's tough to pick just one!)
On that same desert island, with the choice of just one type of music, I would choose classical, all Russian composers -- they are the best!
One last desert island choice -- if I could pick one actor and one actress to be stranded with me, it would be Errol Flynn and Bette Davis. I know they didn't get along, but they'd just have to learn!
I love the great original Broadway musicals, including Gypsy, Carousel, The Roar of the Greasepaint-The Smell of the Crowd, Stop the World-I Want To Get Off, and West Side Story.
I can sing a mean Ethel Merman. I used to scare my cat by singing "Everything's Coming Up Roses" at the top of my voice.
I loved introducing my sons to classic movies, and am now doing so with my grandkids. We particularly like the original Universal horror movies and Vincent Price in anything!
Among other reasons, I find it impossible to stop smoking and still watch my favorite old movies, particularly Bette Davis and Bogart films!
The six other winners of Dawn's award are:
