Swedish Painting (Anders Zorn, Richard Bergh)




Sweden through the artist's eye

Please take the time to glance through this- I found more than two Swedish Painters I am already impressed by, Anders Zorn and Richard Bergh. The landscapes are incredibly talented.

The yellow book : an illustrated quarterly

I've left the volume open at the story Vivian and Merlin. Please visit the above link.




I've always thought of Lord Leighton as a ghost I would want to know, not that I am he himself comeback for a visit, of course. The above link is to The Yellow Book and while skimming through it I found the above Pre-Raphealite.

Mystery Film:Shadows on the Stairs (1941)

The Sphinx (1933) Mystery with Lionel Atwill



I need to see this film: Please watch it with me this month when you can make time.

Woman to Woman (1929) The new old film for which I have to make time



This fascinates me. I will generally watch anything like it and there are several Basil Rathbone films from before 1936 that I would still like to watch again. Anything from this studio could be intriguing. I just can't guarantee for how long any You Tube video will exist.
Please wait for my review.

I was at the house of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow this evening and have been searching for Victorian poetry. I came across a letter thanking Longfellow for his correspondence from Edgar Allen Poe.

Silent Fim Mysteries 1913

While listening to a 1939 radio braodcast of The Shadow of Fu Man Chu, an old time radio drama with Nayland Smith of Scotland Yard, the detective created by Sax Rohmer, I'm researching the mystery films made in 1913. Tonight's episode is The Golden Pomegranate.

Is this a lost silent film?

Its my belief that this in fact could be a lost silent film. Please visit the above link.

This film, The Riddle of the Green Umbrella with Alice Joyce "from the two reel Kalem detective story, could also be a "lost film": I have not yet found any quickly available record of it.



Picture Stories Magazine advertised itself on the front cover as being the Illustrated Films Monthly during 1914 and 1915.
