    A New Home For Old Movies

    At a recent Hollywood screening a film buff I’ve known for many years asked why he couldn’t find some vintage titles in my newest annual Movie Guide.

    Deliverance—and The 3 Stooges

    Some weeks back, when I traveled to Atlanta to tape my host segments for Turner Classic Movies, I thumbed through the then-current issue of Atlanta magazine in my hotel room. The theme of that issue was “Hollywood of the South,” a survey of movie and TV production in Georgia, and I po...
