2014 new post!

OK, wow its been awhile! My last post was in 2011. The reason being my PC went to hell and even though I had a phone it is kinda limited in a way and slow on web pages. So I only used it for Twitter and FB posts through texts. Have a PSP but that was a pain in the ass the web surf on cause WiFi is in horrible spots here for that. This past Xmas I finally got a tablet! Its my new PC. Its a 7″ smartab that came with a case, stand, and a Bluetooth keyboard! I’m finally happy and back in my web world again! Woohoo!

Its taking me sometime to get around to the sites I haven’t been on in ages. And quite frankly I wasn’t sure I was gonna come back here. I been posting in my blogs in http://www.prosebox.net which is a great site! But today I decided to come in here  and post something cause I did enjoy being in WordPress. Plus I have the app which is faster to do things.

I saw a comment from someone that said this looks like a good blog but what I been posting is mostly horror films and she said it was disappointing. Well I post what I feel. I love all types of classic films! My favorite eras are the silent age through the 50’s. I might generally go back to my roots and post about horror films because growing up my parents liked classic horror and sci-fi ( they were teenagers in the 50s which would explain it ), and from there I was opened up to other classic films! So my love for classic films started at a young age. I will post of other classic film genres here but I guess my heart is always for classic horror and sci-fi!

So sure you’ll see posts with classic horror greats, but you see posts about the silent era, ppl like Bettie Davis and Joan Crawford, pre-code films, film noir, classic TV too like the Monkees and old game shows like what’s my line. Cult favorites, and generally I will stick to silent through the 50s but I will post about films made into the 70s. Anything really over that I don’t consider really classic. Sure I love 80s and 90s films but the term ”classic film” to me means a different thing to me then some other ppl. Yeah I do for example love the Indiana Jones films and they are fun and classic. But its not the type of classic film I mean. The classic film term I mean has a different look to it. Much older feel to them. Like a time capsule taking you into a time before you were born.

BTW yeah this is a classic film blog but don’t expect this woman to post about what other women usually post about with films like Gone with The Wind and musicals galore cause that’s not this girl! I’m sure if you look at my blog you can probably already figure that out. I’m just saying. So if your looking for those kinds of classic film blogs (which I find boring and overblogged in my opinion) go somewhere else. Cause this woman won’t be blogging about Judy Garland jumping and singing on a trolley! Just an example there ;p lol

I may not post here on a regular basis. Although, now that I have the app I maybe more inclined to post here instead of somewhere else. Besides I haven’t really been posting much about films anywhere. So having this will be an incentive.

Laterz blog 🙂

i changed my blogs title

I just did a lil change to my wordpress blog here. i changed it from Classic Film Addict to the current title that came to me earlier – VOICES FROM THE PAST

i think its a better title for this blog.

classic films/stars are voices from the past. we must never shut them away. we must savor the moments of the past!  they’re precious time capsules and they should never be forgotten!

♫ Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte ♫

this video is on youtube that i found and also put in cfu. it shows clips from the film. the song is sung by al martino. i love this movie! great acting by every1 involved! great script! of course bette davis was excellent! i love her! for fans of this film that dont know…joan crawford was supposed to play cousin miriam, the role that eventually went to olivia de havilland. After Crawford worked only four days, she quit the film, claiming she was ill. On set Crawford was being treated terribly by the cast and crew of the film, especially Bette Davis and Agnes Moorehead. However, Crawford can be seen in the film. There is a long shot in the beginning of the movie, when Miriam gets out of the taxi upon her arrival at the Hollis plantation, that actually shows the back of Joan Crawford’s head and not de Havilland’s. When the taxi pulls up with cousin Miriam inside and stops at the foot of the steps, if you look closely BEFORE Miriam gets out you can just for a split moment see it is fact Joan Crawford in the back and not Olivia de Havilland. You can’t see Crawford’s face but you can tell it’s her by the black dress and dark sunglasses that she is wearing. When de Havilland as Miriam is seen in the taxi before she arrives she is wearing a white hat and her clothing is light colored.
