Hello to all of my beautiful guests. It is certainly nice having you over!
It's that time already for TCM CLASSIC FILM FESTIVAL! The theme for this year's 2015 festival will be about History According to Hollywood. Now many of you like myself who love history we sometimes get a little annoyed or upset when some Hollywood movies that are based on history are not always accurate. That's why it's important to learn history facts from a reliable source, than to based it on what Hollywood says. Hence this year's film festival theme is History according to Hollywood.
So with that said and done we can't deny that some of Hollywood's historical movies have moved us. Some of these films has helped us see a glimpse of what life might have been years ago. One recent film that I absolutely enjoyed from Daniel Day -Lewis was Lincoln. After I finished watching the film I felt that I truly met this former U.S. President in person, and that I got to know him better.
And talking about Lincoln they will be showing at this year's festival the 1939 Young Mr. Lincoln film starring Henry Fonda who played young Lincoln as an established lawyer. Peter Fonda, son of Henry Fonda will among the attendees.
This year's Sound of Music film is celebrating it's 50 years anniversary. And among the attendees will be non other than the very talented Julie Andrews and the always dashing Christopher Plummer!
And as an additional special treat for those who attend this year's festival will get to experience the hand-cranked projection of 35mm film print. Films that are included are A Trip To The Moon (1902), The Great Train Robbery (1903), and the film Suspense (1913).
