About Me

Hi.  My name is Mary.  What is a millennial doing watching old films, you ask?  Well, it all began one bright sunny afternoon when my Mom discovered a sale of classic movies at the Kingsway bookstore in Eugene, Oregon.  She bought 15 VHS’s including The Mark of Zorro, The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Crimson Pirate, Scaramouche, The Scarlet Pimpernel and well… the rest is history.

How do I express this passion for The Golden Age of Hollywood?  First and foremost, I have a collection of roughly 800 old movies, my pride and joy. Also, I have had the privilege of introducing others to classic film in a variety of ways including movie nights with friends, screening classic films each week at the library I worked at, and organizing movie nights at both churches and a college I attended.  I often do introductions to the films, dishing on all the fascinating behind the scenes stories. Best of all, I attended the TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood in 2016 and 2017. Both years were incredible experiences!

A little more about moi… I love history and have an odd assortment of interests including Nazi Germany, the suffragette movement, the struggle for LGBT rights, and Evangelical Christianity. In addition to learning about history, I enjoy listening to vinyl records, riding my motor scooter, drinking craft beer, playing ping pong, and hiking in the beautiful state of Oregon.
