Happy 80th, Ringo
11th July, 2020
If you look at any recent concert footage, you'll see that Ringo looks amazingly fit and healthy, and nothing like 80 years old. But he has just had his 80th, so we send him our best birthday wishes.
Of course he'll always be thought of as a musician and a Beatle.
But for a few years, as a result of his great performance in A Hard Day's Night, Ringo was being hailed as a very promising actor, and he went on to star with Peter Sellers and others in a mixed bag of films. Some sixties camp, but some really pretty good. And he also directed, most successfully the Marc Bolan bio, Born to Boogie.
So there's lots to enjoy in the Ringo body of work, and for now we'll just add our own "Peace and Love".

Still perhaps the most famous actress of all time - today would have been Marilyn's 94th birthday. Even almost 60 years after her untimely death conspiracy theories still abound, but all we know is that even though her career spanned just 15 years she left us many great films to enjoy. Here are some pieces from some of those.
Happy 90th, Mr Eastwood
31st May, 2020
As with his 80th birthday a decade ago, Clint Eastwood is keeping a low profile ahead of his 90th birthday, and dodging all the attempts to Make His Day or ask him if he Feels Lucky. Still producing and directing, and starring most recently in The Mule, his career to date spans six and a half decades. From early tv, to Rawhide, to the classic spaghetti westerns, US westerns, war movies, light comedy, the iconic Dirty Harry Callahan, and the more recent and Oscar winning turns behind as well as in front of the camera.
And for collectors of original movie posters and lobby cards, Clint has featured in some of the most collectable since the sixties, especially the Leone titles and the Dirty Harry outings. but there are many more to choose from.
Happy Birthday - Christopher Lee and Vincent Price
27th May, 2020
Born on the same day - eleven years apart - both men made their names in Horror films and, perhaps competing for the same roles, they could have been rivals but instead became friends. And, in fact, they made three films together. As their careers progressed and Hollywood beckoned both found themselves able to turn their hands to genres other than horror and often appeared in surprisingly comic roles.
They each had decades-long careers and were in demand and making films right up to their deaths.
Have a look at some of the original movie posters and lobby cards that we currently have in stock from their varied careers.
