All About Movie Treasures Rediscovered
If you’ve gotten this far you’re probably wondering what we do here. Surely there are enough blogs about Hollywood, celebrities and classic films right? How could we possibly need more?
We thought that too. See, as a lifelong cinema fans, we’ve loved learning about all the nuts and bolts of what went in to making a particular film. And the internet is a treasure trove of information. But over time we have gradually discovered an under served part of film history online. That of the picture lost to time.
For example, we are huge fans of Humphrey Bogart’s films. And if we want to explore movies like Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon, The African Queen or The Treasure of the Sierra Madre there’s a load of information to be studied and discovered. But what of The Barefoot Contessa, Sabrina or We’re No Angels? Interesting films all though information about the making of each is somewhat scarce by comparison with Bogart’s best loved classics.
You see what we mean? We think there’s room to explore films worth remembering that may have gradually slipped by the wayside. Every few days, we’ll delve into the details of one such picture, and the subject and content will be completely at our discretion. Should you find this kind of film examination interesting, we invite you to join us for the ride.
