My new classic film website

Unread post by webmaster »

Here's my new website - still working it out. I'd be interested to hear people's comments or suggestions.

You'll see I included "Pillow Talk" and also plan to add "Love Me or Leave Me".

I''d like to do a 'Behind the Scenes' page for each one, where material should be more original - so far I've only done it for two films as it takes so long - this is one area that people could help with if anyone feels they would like to contribute,

Thank you both - nothing is ever perfect but I tried to get some of my knowledge and love of old films into it. It could be a nice hobby in the winter. :)

Thanks DM.

A friend just said he thought the home page was a bit gay - I said I'd take that as a compliment. :)

I've got loads of films lined up, from Sunset Boulevard to Young Frankenstein - just wondering what 'classic films' people like on here?

Wow, your new website is already great! It's easy to see, that you did it with much love.
I like the idea of the quotes and the "Behind the scenes" stories, too.
You've really got a talent to choose the right pictures and stories to make it an interesting and special website! Some classics that came to my mind: "Top Hat", "Bringing up Baby", "Citizen Kane", "The Wizard of Oz", "Singin' in the Rain", "From here to Eternity", "Doctor Zhivago", "An American in Paris", "Suddenly Last Summer", "Witness for the Prosecution", "All That Heaven Allows", "The Inn of the sixth Happiness "....
If you find something new to say about "Casablanca" and "Gone with the Wind" you could add these, too.
In wich decade do you plan to start and in which to end? Depending on when you plan to end I would add some others, too.
Will you add only movies from the US or also from other countries? Then I think of "La Belle et la Bête", "La strada", "Der blaue Engel", "Metropolis", "La dolce Vita"....
Maybe you could add some great old movies that are almost forgotten know?
I guess you already have many movies in mind and I believe you will choose the ones to give a multifaceted insight in classic movies.
I believe it isn't easy to make a choice!

Thanks Lisa, I appreciate that.

The way I've gone about it is to collect the best images I can find, make folders for them - and other folders with images I would like to use at some stage - and research the films, save text, links and write some new stuff where I can.

Of the films you mention, I already have a folder on "The Wizard of Oz", "Singin' in the Rain", "Suddenly Last Summer", " and "Top Hat" (in a Fred & Ginger Folder).

Of the others you mention, "Citizen Kane", "An American in Paris", I would like to add.

Hadn't thought of, "From here to Eternity", "Doctor Zhivago", Witness for the Prosecution", "All That Heaven Allows", "The Inn of the sixth Happiness "....

I made a list of the films I'm planing - seem to have lost it, I'll redo it if I can't find it.

"Casablanca" and "Gone with the Wind" are on it and and would like to get to "La Belle et la Bête", "Metropolis", "La dolce Vita"....

Maybe you could add some great old movies that are almost forgotten know? Yes, definitely!

Well, it's good we have some of the same films in mind - also Sunset Boulevard is lined up.

As well as Love Me or Leave Me.

Thank you both, really appreciate it - maybe I could encourage you both to write something for a film? A lot of it is doing some online research about whatever film you are interested in and putting it all together - or a 'behind the scenes' look at the film, as I did on two of them. If you have some time at some stage.

Did you like the 'Pin-up' section? :) I like the one of Kim Novak and it was a real surprise to see John Wayne looking so young and youthfully handsome.

Bryan! Your site is amazing! The layout is beautiful, and may I say that I love the fact that you have an Auntie Mame quote and photo on the homepage! Kim Novak is one of my favorites, so I loved that you also put her on the homepage. The photos that you chose for the pages are gorgeous. I love the "Ask Alfred" section in the Hitchcock films. I really enjoyed reading the Debbie/Elizabeth/Eddie Scandal article, and you know that the Pillow Talk page was my favorite. :wink: The way you designed the pages with the bolded quotes and the pretty banners is lovely. It's obvious how much time and effort you put into this. I'm looking forward to reading updates. :D

Thanks a lot, Nicki - very kind of you, I've had the idea in my head for a few years but only just got around to doing it. Glad you like the Auntie Mame opening - I love the cigarette in the holder! When I finished this beginning, I wasn't sure if I was on the right track as the images are so large and I thought 'haven't seen any sites like this' but I think it comes from having being a photographer and it was the classic film images that motivated me to some extent.

The Liz-Eddie-Debbie page (like the Olivier-Monroe second page) is a bit 'tabloid' - but fun, I think! It was hard to find something new for 'Pillow Talk' but I think I found enough to redo it.

Thanks very much again and I'll keep people posted when I add new films.

Bryan, your new website is wonderful. Love the cool, crisp graphics. The list of films so far is spot on.

Thanks for including my personal all time favorite film "Vertigo" among your initial selection.

Michael H
Thank you! Vertigo is definitely one of my all time favourites too, Would you be interested in doing part of a film page (I'll include original review)? Love Me or Leave Me, perhaps? Or anything you feel like. No rush, just when or if you can find the time. Howard wants to do something for The Pajama Game so I think 3 DD films will be enough for now! Will have to add Calamity Jane at some stage, of course.

I've just done my first British film, The Ladykillers:

Bryan, yes, I would be honored to write something on Love Me Or Leave Me. Give me a few days and I'll send you a draft. Thanks for asking!

Bryan

Glad you are doing some classic British films.

Also, I think the Quiet Man is a classic - and for the film noir- Maltese Falcon.
