Happy Fathers Day

To all of those Dad’s out there that go the extra mile (I’m sure those British Dad’s are now thanking Queen Elizabeth for putting the kibosh on the Debutante seasons after 1958) like Rex did for his American daughter in The Reluctant Debutante. Thank goodness Sandra Dee had John Saxon to save her from her…

Speaking of Sandra Dee…

We love Sandra Dee movies but I surely will not miss watching another Tammy movie. Tammy and the Doctor (the third and last Tammy movie) finds Grandpaw is still in jail doing time and preaching to the other prisoners. Pete and Tom are nowhere to be found. Mrs. Call Tammy’s elderly rich friend needs a…

Teen Beach Movie & Grease

As Teen Beach Move 2 gets ready to premiere on Disney Channel June 26th at 8pm, I can’t help feel a bit glowy ( yes , that’s a word glow-y). Mainly because Disney is bringing a critical set of Classic Hollywood Smart Kid Essentials to a whole new generation via these revivals. We saw this with…

Happy Birthday Sandra Dee

  April 23, 1944 I embarked on a Sandra Dee phase after seeing Grease, and not really understanding one of the insulting quips they made about her.  Somewhat reluctant, I started with Come September, because at least I liked Rock Hudson and it wouldn’t be a waste of two hours if this Sandra Dee girl…

‘Classichollywood, take it or leave it…and she did’

Who better to Post about in February, the month of Valentines, but America’s Sweetheart from the mid-1930’s to the late 1940’s;  Deanna Durbin.  Who knew that Universal Studio actually had a musical singing star?  Previously when I thought of Universal Studio I associated them with either Monsters, or Abbott and Costello.
