Vintage Moments in Entertainment History : Sophia Loren and Charles Aznavour

I collect vintage stuff.  That's why I joined this awesome online community.  Find more gems like the one below in Vintage, Posters &.. - Google+. They don't just share entertainment, celebrities pics, etc. They share really rare moments in history via vintage photographs you probably won't see anywhere else. Not all the photos are black and white, but the ones that are really add to that "moment in time" often captured by an unknown talented photographer.



Why do I like this photo so much?  For one thing, I'm loyal Sophia Loren fan.  I did a Top Ten List in one of my previous posts and included her in my collection of Iconic Female Celebrities.  Eh! Everybody knows Sophia Loren.  But the fact is, if it weren't for "The Truth About Charlie" movie* with Mark Wahlberg and Thandie Newton, I may have never known who Charles Aznavour was.  But I'm thankful.  His music is great for a romantic evening.  😍


* FYI.  That Wahlberg/Newton film was a remake of a classic old movie, "Charade", a 1963 flick which starred two of my favorite actors from back in the day - Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant, which did not include songs by this popular French singer.  So the film remake actually added a nice touch!  Audrey Hepburn (1929 – 1993) is also on my list of Iconic Female Celebrities.  Love her too! 💟

Movies and Tv Series filmed in Ireland, but NOT set in Ireland : The Teeny tiny à Tout Faire (Reblog)

Well I know that I'm supposed to be tooting my own horn but why can't I toot about blogs I like as well? It's just as much fun reading other people's blogs as it is publishing my own. Re-blogging a link from a super cool entertainment blog that caught my eye.


The Teeny tiny à Tout Faire: [Irish Week] Movies and Tv Series filmed in Ireland, but NOT set in Ireland



Why do I like this blog? It shares entertainment-related tidbits, fun facts, etc. that are of interest to me. I like the post categories; especially “Who Wore It Best?”   

(Loved that contrast photo of Lupita and Beyoncé.  Shared it via my Tumblr.)



I enjoy the “Movie Reviews” category because there are reviews of vintage movies. The publisher uses the word “vintage”. But sometimes we say “movie classics” or “old movies”. 

(I love all things vintage, so I'm happy with the blogger using this descriptive term in lieu of “classic” or “old”.   Shared the review of "Father Goose" via Pinterest where I collect "Everything Vintage". )

Additionally, there are recommendations regarding foreign films (i.e. non-American) and I'm always on the hunt for non-American movies or TV series.


🎬 Movie Review: Your Name. (君の名は。) Your Name. (君の名は。) is a Japanese animated movie, premiered in 2016 and has been written and directed by Makoto Shinkai, who also wrote the novel this anime movie is based on. Fun fact : this movie hit the theatres last year in July in the USA and in August in Japan and managed to become the highest -grossing anime movie, over comin Academy Award winning "Spirited Away".
