About me

Location Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Introduction Here you will find my often incoherent ramblings about my favourite classic film stars, reviews of the many films I watch, and various other things pertaining to the wonderful world of classic film. Occasionally I stray from my classic film blog status and post about more recent (i.e. post-1970) films and tv series. Hope you enjoy reading and don't be afraid to comment - I love talking to my fellow film buffs!!
Interests Drinking tea whilst watching old films and musicals, sitting under a tree on a sunny day, standing at high points of the Dales and Moors with the wind blowing around me, singing and dancing, travelling, conversing with people of other countries and speaking their language, having pretty things with lots of memories surrounding me.
