    TCM Goes Hollywood—Again

    Euphoric: that’s the best word I can think of to describe the feeling that permeated the TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood this past weekend.

    Good Riddance To Movie Prints

    Well, it’s about time. After more than a hundred years of faithful service, 35mm prints seem destined to go the way of the dodo bird, and I for one am glad. Who needs those pesky, perforated pieces of film anyway?Actual 35mm frames from Can-Can with Maurice Chevalier, Shirley MacLaine and Frank Sina...

    Farewell, Marvin of the Movies

    His name was Marvin Eisenman, but most of his film-buff pals knew him as Marvin of the Movies. He wasn’t a trained archivist or a professional librarian, but he kept careful track of all 42,000 movies in his collection and offered copies to friends, friends of friends, filmmakers, researche...

    Cowboys Are Still Riding High

    I know a little something about fanzines, having published one for many years. Young people may not even know the term, which predates the Internet, with its sites and blogs, by many decades. Back then, before there was even widespread access to photocopy machines, I inherited Film Fan Monthly from its founder, Daryl Davy, in May of 1966 and combined it with my much more modest publication, Profile, which was then printed on a mimeograph machine. With a schoolmate, at first, and then my dad, I continued producing FFM every month—which included licking stamps, stuffing envelopes, and hauling bins to the post office—for the next ...

    Film Noir: Mildred Pierce...And More

    When I was a kid, the first sign of spring was the arrival of the Good Humor truck in my neighborhood, bringing my favorite ice-cream pops (like the unforgettable Chocolate Éclair). Nowadays, I know it’s spring when the Noir City: Hollywood Festival arrives at the Egyptian Theater, under the auspice...

    Cinefest: A Little Slice Of Heaven

    Every year, when my wife and I return from the Cinefest in Syracuse, New York, we find ourselves struggling to explain to our non-film-buff friends why we had such a good time in such an unlikely location in the dead of winter. Anyone who’s ever attended knows why we make the trek.

    Meeting Miss Taylor

    I don’t usually get flustered before an interview, but I did when Entertainment Tonight told me I’d be talking to Elizabeth Taylor. The year was 1989, and she was promoting a new TV version of Tennessee Williams’ Sweet Bird of Youth she had made with Mark Harmon. I didn’t ...
