Dear friends and movie fans,
First of all, I wish you a wonderful new year, full of joyful moments!
Secondly, I want to thank everyone for visiting my blog. I would like to update it more often and I will do my best to continue the good work this year, too.
Thirdly, I want to propose anyone who is interested in trading with me movie memorabilia/classic film items (magazines, books, postcards, movie stills etc.) to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am very interested to trade for any of the followings:
-Dark Journey (1937)
-Gone With the Wind (1939)
-Romy Schneider and Karlheinz Boehm (together in “Sissi” and “Kitty und die grosse Welt”)
-Princess Grace of Monaco
-Madame X (1966)
-Deborah Kerr and Yul Brynner (together in “The Journey” and “The King and I”)
I have my own collection of original movie items, with various actors (others than the names listed). So, whoever is interested, please contact me and we will discuss the details.
One of the most romantic films of the 1950’s, “Roman Holiday” marked the debut of Audrey Hepburn in Hollywood. She was the Princess, similarly to Grace Kelly (who was born in 1929, like A. Hepburn). Audrey and Gregory Peck had great chemistry and the direction of William Wyler was also very important. “Roman Holiday” was a personal favourite film of his. But I think that the script, written by Dalton Trumbo, added to the high quality of this motion picture. The film was shot in Rome and that is why the posters that promote the film also promote Rome as a holiday destination.
The first major film noir, “The Maltese Falcon” was directed by John Huston and it starred Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet. It was one of the top films of the 1940’s and it’s still very popular among the movie goers. Some posters emphasize the fascination for the infamous bird.
Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant starred in a great film, “Charade”, which was directed by Stanley Donen, even if the production resembles the Hitchcockian style. “Charade” is a wonderful film, full of suspense and action scenes, but it is also a comedy. I enjoyed it very much and I saw it several times. Audrey and Cary are nice together and the costumes designed by Hubert de Givenchy are also iconic.
