by Dylan · June 18, 2008 · New LAMB · 1 Comment


Site Name: Out of the Past ~ A Classic Film Blog

What is the main focus of your site (reviews, editorials, news, lists, etc.)?
A personal perspective on classic films. Specifically those films from the 1920s to the 1960s. I explore a wide-range of unique topics including sexuality on film, pre-codes (early ’30s) and code breakers (late ’50s/early ’60s), film noir, ’60s sex comedies, Bette Davis’ blonde films, Norma Shearer’s career, influence of classic film on current culture, classic film in contemporary books, the lives of actors and actresses, and my personal experience and reactions to certain movies.

What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
I am trying to develop a more social interaction with other film bloggers as well as classic film fans on the net. I also want to show people that classic films are not outdated, instead so many of them are timeless and still are able to speak to audiences today. And one of my biggest goals is to show people that many classic films were scandalous and racy and not as bland as most people think they are.

Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
I prefer interactive. I speak directly to an audience and love it when they speak back.

How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
More than a year. I’ve been trying to post 2-3 times a week and have recently started opening up my blog to guest bloggers.

Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
Pillow Talk, Rear Window, Good News.
