Lynn has always loved watching classic movies since she was a child and decided to bring together her interest in making web sites to her passion for classic film.  So, she started the work back in the mid 2000’s launching many individual sites that she has brought together under one roof here,”Classic Movie Favorites” in July, 2013.  Julie came on board in 2014 to write reviews and she has continued working on the site since then.

The intention is to celebrate anything classic movies which traditionally includes films from the beginning to about 1969. As time goes on, the definition of “classic” is slowly being broadened to include any films over 20 years old.  While the predominance of coverage here about classic movies prior to 1969, and primarily sound films, we reserve the right to include films, actors, actresses and directors from any period we deem appropriate.

  1. I had that photo of George White, Ellie and Bojangles and couldn’t remember where I found it on line. When I typed in their names with photo — your site popped up. I can’t believe all the info you had in this story Lynn. I’ve been a fan of Ellie’s for several years. My dad had dated her briefly back in NY before she moved out to LA at age 25. I knew from previous research that Bojangles is the godfather of Peter and Pearl Bailey the godmother. The fact that she stood up for blacks and civil rights, plus her work with the Hollywood Caravan, has made me so proud to be an American who also loves to dance.

    1. Thanks for commenting Eileen. Since I have known Peter Ford for over ten years, he has provided me with a lot of info about his mother. Your story is great.
