Recently, Meredith of the super wonderful blog Forever Classics (it's also in my blog roll, so check it out) did her Classic Hollywood actor alphabet. A few other classic movie blogs have done the same, and I totally love the idea so I thought I'd give it a try.
Before I start, I got a BUNCH of Old Hollywood books over the past week or so (Rianna must not go to the bookstore for at least another month. Rianna must not. She mustn't...). I thought I'd start from the shortest biography and move my way up, so I'm reading "Jean Arthur: The Actress Nobody Knew" right now. But a lot of the other biographies are looking tempting - Ava's especially - so I would really appreciate if you could vote in the poll and let me know what you think I ought to read (and review) next. Thank you :)
Also, if you've been keeping up with FranklyMyDearTV on Youtube, you'll see that I've done a couple of tribute videos that I haven't shared here yet. I just finished one this morning and thought it would be nice to share:
I'm really mad because I couldn't get everyone in that video that I wanted to get in, but anyhow, it's a Classic Hollywood tribute set to "Viva la Vida" by Coldplay. Hope you enjoy.
