Who is this gorgeous Fox star of the 1940’s whose short life ended after a house fire broke out while she was watching one of her early movies?


Hello Everybody:  (reminds you of Kate Smith a bit, doesn’t it? ) Well, Joe Morella and Frank Segers here and have been for over two weeks now. We’ve tried to think of other famous  lines from classic films which we can work into our musings and haven’t  yet come up with any except to say “I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore” 


We’ve received some comments but would like hundreds more so let’s hear from you. As a classic movie fan you have dozens of internet choices to choose from when exploring your favorite subject. Nonetheless, we feel — make that, we know – CLASSIC MOVIE CHAT is special. Why?  Well, we may be new on the web but we are not wet behind the ears.  Joe is the author of more than 20 books about famous show people, and Frank has been covering international film for more than 35 years.  We’ve been around the block many times, and have picked up along the way a wealth of opinions and observations about Hollywood, our favorite films and why they merit the term “classic.”  Classic Movie Chat will feature at least four times each and every week fresh, hard-hitting blogs about stars, studios, favorite movies and why we believe what we do.  We very much look forward to sharing these blogs with you — garnished by an extraordinary range of personal photographs of famous stars drawn from Joe’s personal files and the Donald Gordon Collection. We’ll present a brand new photograph at least five days each week.  Many of these will be NEVER BEFORE SEEN photos.  We aim to keep Classic Movie Chat fresh, opinionated and great to look at.  So, please don’t wait. Put us on your favorite site list, and visit us often.

Know who today’s mystery girl is?


That was Joan Crawford, of course, posing with her third husband Phil Terry and super fan Donald Gordon.  Terry was a second lead in the forties, mostly at Paramount.  Two films you might remember him in are “Lost Weekend” and “To Each His Own.”
