TCM Film Festival Blogathon Day 1 (repost)
(reposted with pictures) So we decided not to see High Society as it was too terribly cold outside to watch, but we did have dinner at the Public inside the Roosevelt, two tables away from THE Ben Mankiewicz, who had a harem of women around him at all times. We attempted to get a picture and an autograph, but the wall of women was too thick. Afterward, we saw Sabrina at Grauman’s Chinese...
TCM Film Festival Blogathon Day 2 (repost)
(reposting with pictures) First on today’s agenda would have been Bringing Up Baby, but we were all terribly worn out yesterday. So instead, we saw I’m No Angel with Mae West and a very young Cary Grant.

My parents and I got up early to go see A Trip to the Moon and Other Trips Through Time, Space, and Travel. This was a compilation of the earliest silents films, some with stories, others just some film from back in the day. These were all courtesy of Serge Bromberg, a film historian whose Lobster...

The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, you may know, has serviced many stars over the years such as Douglas Fairbanks, Shirley Temple, Clara Bow, Charlie Chaplin,...
