Video Introduction

Yours truly fumbling my way through a video introduction. Remember I love watching films and do not claim to be an actor or director. 🙂

  1. All collectors have a bit of voyeur in them when it comes to peeping into other people’s collections, so I just loved this, amazing stuff nicely organized in its own “wing” and I look forward to more in-depth looks into your posters and other great finds. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hey Mike, just came over through Kristina’s introduction and–wow, whatta room!

    Looking forward to digging into your posts, especially anything covering titles from the 1930s and ’40s.

    • I have been thanking Kristina all day for the nice kick off she gave me and thankyou for taking the time to visit. Love all era’s of film and have more than my fair share of films from the 30’s and 40’s. Hope to hear from you again…..who knows I maybe have purchased something from you over the years on line.

    • Thanks for the kind words and yes the collection is a bit large for the “movie room” may have to move soon. 🙂 Love westerns so will be visiting you I am sure(pretty sure I have already). It’s my standard answer for my favorite genre. Noir right up there as well.

  3. Hi Mike!

    I’m another friend of Kristina’s and loved your video tour! Loved checking out your collection.

    Welcome to the classic film blogosphere!

    Best wishes,
    Laura

  4. Hey Mike! It was a pleasure meeting you today and thank you for referring me to your website. I really must say that your collection is phenomenal! I really admire the fact that you pay homage to a classic Hollywood era that not a lot of people remember or relate to these days. I remember when Bob Hope passed in 2003 and people were like “who was he?” And just this year, Shirley Temple and Mickey Rooney…I had to explain that Shirley Temple was a real person and not just a drink at Swiss Chalet. So I must say that I find it truly refreshing to see others admiring the good old classics.

    Keep up your amazing work,

    Kristina

  5. As a film collector myself, I am very impressed with your “library”. I have well over 3,000 titles on varying formats (35mm film, VHS, DVD, Blu-ray) but lack so many classics that I wish to acquire some day.

    • No doubt it’s an addictive hobby. I never tire of looking for films that are classics or generally rare and forgotten by todays standards hence the sub title rediscovering cinema past. Thanks for the taking the tour.

  6. Yeah,this is definitely where I want to hang out. (I’ve got the same habits, DVD, Blu, Sets, Collector Stuff, Posters). I make it a habit to click the like button or leave a comment so you know who is lurking on your site. I’ll try not to be over your shoulder all the time.
