Greetings fellow classic film fans. Welcome to my blog. My name is Madeleine. I am known to all as Maddy. I live in the UK (British born and bred).
I love classic films! I’ve been a fan of classic cinema since my early teens. My favourite film genres are Romance, Noir, Thriller, Drama, Western and Horror. I am also a huge fan of Silent films too. I enjoy a good musical too. Film Noir and Romance are my go to film genres. If I find a Noir that has a good love story in it too, then I will be a doubly happy gal. 🙂
My favourite countries for film are Japan, Britain, Australia, China, America and India.
By day I work as a Library Assistant. By night (and at most weekends), I can usually be found solving a case with Philip Marlowe, dancing with Fred Astaire or The Nicholas Brothers, gazing dreamily at Robert Mitchum, Rossano Brazzi, George Sanders, Sidney Poitier and Cary Grant. Hey, why not? 🙂
I am a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes. Jeremy Brett is my favourite screen Holmes (I also think he did the best job of playing Sherlock on screen). I love Basil Rathbone and Ian Richardson’s portrayals of Sherlock too.
I am a major fan of George Sanders. I never get tired of watching him and listening to that amazing voice of his. I love him the most in The Saint film series and All About Eve.
I will mostly be discussing classic era films and TV series here. The classic film era is the one which is the most special to me. I will also discuss more modern films, stars and series from time to time as well. You may also find some book chat here sometimes.
I like to write about the films and series I’ve watched. I really like to share my views and opinions on the characters and performances in those films and series. I hope you enjoy reading my posts. I welcome any comments and feedback. I look forward to some interesting film discussion with you.
