About

Hi I’m Crystal,

I’m a classic film enthusiast, and have been passionate about the golden age for years.  Some of my favorite stars include: Barbara Stanwyck, Carole Lombard, Ethel Barrymore, Bette Davis, Katharine Hepburn, to name a few. At the moment I’m currently in the midst of researching for a proposed book on Agnes Moorehead, which will take a few solid years to complete.

    From “Movie Movie Blog Blog”: I’m not sure what you mean by “What time comedy are you after?” for the “See You in the ‘Fall’ Blogathon.” It can be a scene or entire TV episode that involved physical comedy. Any time period is fine.

    Hi Crystal! I just discovered your blog through The Wonderful World Of Cinema Blog and was thrilled to see another fellow classic film buff :-). I also blog about classic film every Friday (among other things like history, women’s issues, and writing) on my blog Mother Time Musings (http://tammayauthor.com/index.php/blog/) and have a Facebook page for my blog (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mother-Time-Musings-Blog/973527066001474?ref=hl). I write historical mysteries, so history (especially how women fit into it and transcend it) is important to me and classic films has always been a passion of mine.

    One thing I have to ask you – where do you find such great pictures to post on your blog from classic films? I have a hard time finding Creative Commons/public domain pictures from classic films, especially the more obscure ones, beyond what I can dig up from Google Images, Flickr, and Wikimedia Commons. Is there a specific place where you can find pics that are not pricey and either CC or PD friendly that I don’t know about?

    Thank you!

    Tam

      Hi Tam,

      Thanks for reading. Feel free to follow my blog, and I’ll be more than happy to follow yours.

      Regarding the pictures, I get most of my pictures from Pinterest, Tumblr or Corbis. For the movie images and screen shots, Yahoo Images I find have the best screen shots. The good thing about these sites is that they are all free. Hopefully that helps.

      Kind regards
      Crystal
