What is the main focus of your site? Keeping alive the great films, and great stars, of Hollywood’s finest decades. The 1920’s – 1950’s.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog? To provide a viewing selection of classic films from all genre’s to be enjoyed again by those old enough to remember them or young enough to discover them.
Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students? Initially, I enjoyed visitor comments a great deal and were happy to hear from such organizations as the Carole Landis Foundation and the great W. C. Fields granddaughter. However, comments are turned off until I can solve the comment spam problem.

How did hear about the LAMB? If it was a LAMB, do you recall which one? During an internet search for a collection of film blogs. A great find!

    Although I’m not as passionate as you when it comes to older movies (although I do love them), it’s nice to see you stick to this one subject. Welcome to the Lamb!

      Glad to hear that you love the older films and thank you for the welcome. Keep watching them and encourage others to discover the pleasure of film by looking not only forward, but back.

    What I like about the classics are their ability to surprise me – especially philosophically. Though they ‘talk funny’, usually too fast, but the script are thoughtful. I still yearn to watch, again, ‘The Glass Slippers’ by Leslie Caron & Michael Wilding. But I can’t get the DVD.

  3. Carl says:

    I too have found it pleasantly surprising how insightful the old films can be. Although most of the philosophical sentiment is geared to the time of a films story and the time of its production, a great deal of that thoughtfulness should still be remembered today. In fact, we could use quite a bit of it.

    The Glass Slipper is a charming rendition of the classic story of Cinderella and I wish I could help you in finding a copy of the dvd, but I haven’t come across it yet. If I do, I will let you know.
