“I don’t want perfection of detail in the acting. I’d hate a picture that was perfect, it would seem machine made. I want the human touch, so that you love the picture for its imperfections.”
– Charles Chaplin
Once I mentioned “The Wizard of Oz” yesterday, in the post about classic movies in cinema, I also remembered about this cute photo of Judy Garland in her test of hair and costume for this movie. Lets see it and I wish a great week to you all!

I’m here tonight to share with you a pretty good surprise that I had this week. First, I need to remember this story had its beginning some years ago…
Well, exactly in 2014, I posted here about a wonderful surprise that I had with the cinema in my city (a small Brazilian city): the unique movie network we have here, announced that it would display a series of classic movies over the next months, which made me very enthusiastic!
But, after two years of this project, it was stopped for a time. However, after a long time of waiting, it will return this month!! Yay! 😀
So, it will be three different movies which will be display over the next months: “Gone With The Wind” (1939), “2001: A Space Odyssey” (1968) and “The Wizard of Oz” (1939). I have to admit that, although I want to watch all of them, I’m very anxious to see the last one, because is one of my favorite musical movies! ❤
That’s all for now, when I can watch these movies, I write here to tell you my experience with them in the big screen. See you!
Today is the birthday of an actress from Hollywood who died very young: Jayne Mansfield (19 April 1933 – 29 June 1967).
Well, it following the list of birthdays of this month, today is the birthday of another actor from Classic Hollywood: William Holden (17 April 1918 – 12 November 1981). Happy Birthday Will!
So, what’s your favorite movie of him? (I need to admit that mine are those with Audrey Hepburn in it…).
Today is the birthday of a star of the beginning of Hollywood: Charles Chaplin (16 April 1899 – 25 December 1977).
Now, tell me: What’s your favorite film of him?
“A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.”
– Stanley Kubrick
Another star whose birthday is in this week is the actor Gregory Peck (05 April 1916 – 12 June 2003). Happy Birthday Greg!!
