Classic Links

Congratulations to Monty of All Good Things for reaching his second blog anniversary and Ivan of Thrilling Days of Yesteryear for climbing to year eight! Good work guys. It isn’t easy to keep a blog going, and you two do a fine job of it.

Laura covers the grand opening of the Joel McCrea Ranch-- Laura’s Miscellaneous Musings

This is an amazing article about the tricky restoration of A Trip to the Moon and the documentary based on that process. I can’t wait to see the results!-- Fast Company

Love this gallery that shows young and older versions of several classic stars. A great testimony to the beauty of embracing, rather than concealing maturity-- The Silver Screen Affair

Ever heard of Movember? Bette is having a mustache blogathon for the month of November, and it’s to raise funds for an important cause-- Bette’s Classic Movie Blog

Thingy's post about meeting Elke Sommer is pretty funny. She re-posted in honor of the dear woman's birthday last week.-- Pondering Life

Here’s a clip of Michelle Williams singing Heat Wave as Marilyn Monroe. I don’t think she gets Monroe at all, but Williams is a great actress anyway. Really, who could do Monroe? I saw a drag queen on Oprah (I think. . .) get awfully close several years ago.-- Towleroad


  1. Thank you for the link! It was a wonderful day at the ranch -- I hope many more classic film fans will have the chance to visit in the future.

    Best wishes,

  2. Thanks for the link. : )

    Wow, eight years! Awesome.

  3. I envy your access to the ranch Laura. It's so sweet that his grandson is working to make it a success. He looks like such a nice guy.

    The Ekland story is hilarious thingy. I might have posted it the first time you told it, but that one is worthy of a repeat.
