“In 150 – 200 words, what was the first classic horror film that you can remember seeing?”
“It could be that first horror film that left a lasting impression, rather than the very first one you remember seeing. The good news is that there are no limitations to write about as there are so many to choose from. Keeping a short word limit should hopefully make it an easier task as well.”

With MY journey in classic films starting 60 years ago, I can barely remember my first time for ANYthing. What I can say is that in my recent sojourns with horror movies, my sympathy has come to lie with ‘The Monster.’ Lord knows in these troubling times, I wouldn’t give a hill of beans or a plug nickel for human beings.
“Sir, I don’t want to intrude. But a United States Senator is news. I’m the editor of a newspaper with a state~wide circulation. I’ve got a responsibility to know why you came all the way down here to bury a man. You can’t just say ‘his name was Tom Doniphon,’ and leave it at that. Who was Tom Doniphon?!”
“He was a friend, Mr. Scott. And we’d like to be left alone.”
This post is part of theMy Favorite Classic Movie Blogathonin celebration ofNational Classic Movie Day ( May 16th ). Click here to view the schedule listing all the great posts in this blogathon. I have to tell ya, I’ve had many favorite movies over the years watching classic films.
Do you know the movie: “NIGHT SONG”? You ought to check it out…it’s a very good romantic drama featuring Dana Andrews and Merle Oberon. He’s a blind pianist whom Merle Oberon falls in love with. In order to win him over, she pretends to be blind as well. Our two leads are very good. Dana is an angry blind guy and Merle is in love with him. A match made in movie heaven.
This time I wasn’t in Hollywood…at a film festival…with like-minded classic film fans. This time I wasn’t at the magnificent Graumann’s Chinese…with the star of the film introducing the movie; ( btw, a star I had met. A-hem! ) Nope, this time I was here in New York City.
