The Hollywood Collection on YouTube

November 15, 2017 ~ As much as I love classic movies, I am surprised I never discovered “The Hollywood Collection” YouTube channel until today. I later learned that the channel was produced by Janson Media, a company offering rights to broadcast this collection and more through VOD, cable television, events, etc. Follow this link to learn about the collection and acquisition rights.

TBT – Memories Worth Savoring

Thursday, April 9, 2015 – I woke up this morning wondering what to share with my friends on Facebook for Throwback Thursday (TBT). Reflecting on my youth, I remembered one of the most magical summers of my life. I was staying with friends in a California bungalow on Hollywood Way in Oxnard. I looked forward to the afternoons when we came in from kelp harvesting to find comedian Jonathan Winters waiting for us with cold beer and a bevy of improv routines. He was a true master of improv!
