Personal Quote:

I rarely see a film made these days that I get excited about, but I find myself watching a lot of films from the 1940s and 50s over and over again. While my favorite music and painting is from the late 1920s and early 30s, it's usually films from the 40s and 50s that do it for me. See more »
