"It's the pictures that got small"

If you want to know both why and how the Sage enjoys old movies (almost precisely), then check out this piece by Gerald Nachman.   Amazing!  I could have written it myself, although not so well as he.


  1. Good article. Old films painted a world that may have not been real for the viewer, but they provided world's and behaviors to which one could aspire. No film today has that power. Sad.

  2. Wonderful title, Sage! Sunset Boulevard pretty much sums up why old movies are so delicious!
