Some of those old time movies are great. Just goes to show, that you don't need a lot of cgi to make a good movie. 😊

Human creativity is best with out CGI, like a good screen play. "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf"1966 is a perfect example.

Hi Refractordude and all. As an old time movie fan, i love these classic movies. Here is something that you may not know. The role of "the monster" was later taken over by Glenn Strange for the remainder of the productions. And, he later played as the bartender "Sam" in the old Gunsmoke TV series.

Enjoy. I love the old movies and TV series.

Last week we attended a performance of Phantom of the Opera (the silent film version by Carl Laemmle Jr.) starring Lon Chaney Sr. The film was accompanied by world famous organist Dorothy Papadokus on the Helzberg Organ at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts (https://www.kauffmancenter.org/the-center/). I've seen the movie countless times but her organ accompaniment with it was outstanding. She did impromtu playing watching a small monitor on the organ, while the rest of us saw it on a enormous video screen. Next year is Dr. Jeckle & Mr Hyde...I intend to be there for that also, just to hear her play.

Hi Refractordude and all. Here is an older post of mine that I pulled from the old forum for you old time movie fans about Dracula, although Halloween is now past.
This is vy ve like the refractor telescopes:
The Great Bela.jpg
Anything else is a reflection in the mirror on your part.
And, don't forget Bela Lagosi's lookalike, Oscar Homolka from Alfred Hitchcock's Sabotage Movie (1936):

They were both from the Austro-Hungaria (or Austria-Hungary) Transleithania (or Transylvania) region, and had the same accent and mannerisms. Hollywood missed a great opportunity to make a "Dracula Brothers" movie at the time, but they worked for different studios.
I hope that you enjoy the old movies and trivia as much as I do, and the best of regards.

Hmmm, I don't know that organist. I'm going to have to look her up. I love that silent version of the movie.

Hollywood missed the opportunity to make a Dracula brothers movie, but not the first African American Dracula. The movie trailer is great. The movie is even better. The sequel "Scream Blacula Scream" was a dud.
