everyone  knows  youtube is great fun when looking for some fun short videos to watch for some escapism! even watching music videos! but im shocked to find out some ppl dont realize youtube has classic films  and tv shows on there! some in parts, and others in full!

well over time i added some films in a playlist called: Classic Films (catchy huh LMAO).  heres my classic films playlist: MY YOUTUBE CLASSIC FILM LIST

most on that list are films either in parts or uploaded full. but i have just a few stuff in there not films, but related to classic films,  like : Whatever Happened to Baby Jane music video, a trailer, bette davis eyes video.

but most stuff i have on there are films in their entirety, or parts.

u will see alot of classic horror stuff mainly &  also silent gems! some comedy stuff too.   below is my list as of right now:

yea theres alot of B-movies on it. but i like b-movies!

A history of Hollywood is a seven part series in 1 hour installments airing Mondays and Wednesdays  at 8pm! each installment focuses on a different era of american movie history. from the inventions of the 1st moving pictures, to the revolutionary cutting-edge films of the 1960s.

ep:1 Peepshow Pioneers 1889-1907

ep:2 The Birth of Hollywood 1907-1920

ep:3 the Dream Merchants 1920-1928

ep:4 Brother, can You Spare a Dream 1929-1941

ep:5 Warriors and Peacemakers 1941-1950

ep:6  The Attack Of The Small Screens 1950-1960

ep:7 Fade Out, Fade In 1960-1969

for more details about these episodes in this series go to http://www.tcm.com/moguls/#/home

from just pictures projected on a wall, to moving film shots, experimental cinema, to films that told a story……to watch films from their birth is so interesting to watch and it takes you back in a time long gone. where everything was so new and exciting! and its so great that tcm will be showing us from the beginning how it all began!

This doesn’t show alot on tcm, or maybe its just that i dont catch it that often. but i had to upload this! its for the love of silent movies! SILENT MOVIE LOVERS UNITE 😀

Nosferatu with Max Shreck (my fave silent), The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari, The phantom of the opera, and a few others. including a silent film by alfred hitchcock called Downhill (1927).
