Sign a petition to bring the 1957 TV version of Mayerling with Audrey Hepburn and Mel Ferrer to DVD (there’s a short clip of the show here as well)-- Fabulous Audrey Hepburn

1929: studios start charging for signed photographs. In response to fan requests, the stars send postcards in which they apologize profusely for the policy change (while listing the prices for photos). Cliff has some screenshots of these interesting little cards, complete with star signatures (at least the autographs are free)— Immortal Ephemera

Lost footage of Rio Rita (1929) found on YouTube-- All Talking! All Singing! All Dancing!

It has finally truly hit me how sad it is that Debbie Reynolds’ costume collection will never have its own museum. What a fascinating and unique destination this would have been for classic movie fans-- Alt Film Guide


  1. Thanks so much for including my studio reply card post, KC!

  2. You're welcome! It's funny how an everyday thing like those little cards is so fascinating now.
