The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Apr 16, 2021

I really have bad blogging habits these days! I have to get back in business and publish more often than I have so far in 2021.

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Mar 20, 2021

The Magnificent Agnes Moorehead

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Dec 8, 2020

I was introduced to the fabulous Agnes Moorehead quite early in my exploration of classic films.
