Golden Age of Hollywood Film Reviews

This blog celebrates the films made in the 1930, 1940s, and 1950s – the Golden Age of Hollywood.

These posts are a mix of history, trivia, and my reviews. I’m not a filmmaker, nor am I a professional critic. I’ll never tell you I like a film when I don’t, but I’m here to focus on what’s great and enduring about theses films, not pick them apart.

You can find an alphabetical list of all films here.

Though the posts can be read in any order, I often write a series of posts on a particular topic, like the sibling rivalry of Olivia de Havilland and Joan Fontaine, the love story of Bogart and Bacall, or films based on the novels of Edna Ferber.

If you have questions, recommendations, or a severe disagreement on a film’s rating, I want to hear from you! You can contact me on the About page here.

Lazy Sunday

On Sundays, I write a non-film related post about my life or what’s on my mind. These include a surprising number of posts about me locking myself out of my house.
