During the month of September I did a series on Twitter called 30 in 30 Favorite Stars. Each day I shared a photo of one of my favorite stars and used the hashtag #30in30FavoriteStars so folks could follow along. I encouraged other classic film fans to participate and it got a great response! I had so much fun with it that I'm contemplating doing more with different themes. Are you on Twitter? Follow me on my movie/personal account @QuelleLove and my general account for film bloggers @ClassicFilmRead. Below is a snapshot of the Twitter series as well as the full list with photos of the 30 stars I chose for my own list. Enjoy!

Out of the Past - 2012 Classic Movie Gift Guide

It's that time of year again! If you have a classic movie fanatic in your life, you know the know who has everything and is impossible to shop for, here are some cool gift ideas. I have not included DVDs or Blu-Rays because we are all familiar with that trepidation that precedes gift buying, when you wonder whether the recipient has the gift already or not. I have listed below some really unique gift ideas that your loved one will probably not already have.

 Enjoy and happy holidays!


Make sure your image is at least 234 X 490 and that your design has a blank space at the top left (the above image is inverted).


For that fan of The Women (1939) . Just make sure it doesn't come with a one-way ticket to Reno, Nevada!

Because everyone needs one of these in their homes.


They can double as a dress. Just watch Gone with the Wind (1939) for inspiration.


That gentleman in your life will look as good as Robert Walker in The Strangers on a Train (1951)

Williams-Sonoma - $89.95

I'm sure they'll do a much better job at making coffee with this gadget than Tess Harding (Katharine Hepburn) did in Woman of the Year (1942)

Yellow Raincoat

For that special person who gets that glorious feeling to sing in the rain. Make them happy again!

Ray-Ban RB4164 Sunglasses
$94.98 (sale price)

For that conniving person who needs to hide the evil behind their eyes with a pair of sunglasses.
I wish Kate Gabrielle's print of Leave Her to Heaven (1945) was still available!

UPDATE: The above print is available at Kate's society6 store

Breakdowns from 1936

Bullets or BallotsLots of stars featured in this blooper reel fro 1936 including Warren William, Humphrey Bogart, Kay Francis, Edward G. Robinson, Joe E. Brown, Ann Dvorak, Leslie Howard and James Cagney. A lot of the scenes include actors cursing "god damn it" whenever they get something wrong. I wonder what other curses were left out? I think it's interesting too that several scenes show that movie studios crashed cymbals to end the scene instead of just yelling "cut". I found Breakdowns of 1936 in the extras for the DVD of Bullets or Ballots (1936) and lucky for us it's also on YouTube. Enjoy!
