CONTRIBUTIONS: 4 Performers: Eve Arden, Joan Blondell, James Cagney, Barbara Stanwyck


LOCATION: Missouri, U.S.A.


Double Indemnity (1944)INTERESTS: Classic movies, Reading John D. McDonald and John Steinbeck. Classic country music.

MOVIE MEMORABILIA: Some old magazines and lots of classic movies on video. Hope to add more magazines and possibly some classic movie actor or actress autographs.

FAVORITE MOVIES: White Heat (1949), Angels with Dirty Faces (1938), The Great Man's Lady (1942), Double Indemnity (1944), Casablanca (1942), lots more; these are just some that come to mind.

Casablanca (1942) FAVORITE ACTORS/ACTRESSES: James Cagney, Barbara Stanwyck, The Marx Brothers, Doris Day, Abbott and Costello, Eve Arden, Joan Blondell and many more.

TESTIMONY: My uncle ran a movie house projector during the "golden age". My mom would go with him to the theater and play in the aisles as the movie was shown. She told me about these movies and the people in them, but it wasn't until I grew up and saw Ceiling Zero for the first time that I began to realize that these classic movies were really far better than the modern ones.
