Something New Has Been Added


Since December 29, 2005, we’ve posted 129 stories here at Greenbriar Picture Shows. Today is number 130. Until now, we’ve had no links, no search engines, no index, but as of last night, all that has changed, and we are today introducing Old Movie Exhibition, our brand new website for looking up past articles on favorite stars and titles. Everyone’s there --- from Bud Abbott to Daryl F.Zanuck --- there’s even an entry under Snerd, Mortimer. All the names and titles are listed on a drop-down menu, and the search will give you the postings in which they’ve appeared, with a link to take you there. Each new posting will be added to the index as we go along. The links will also be updated from time to time, as we run into interesting new sites every day, it seems. At the top of this page, you’ll note the new Archives and Links and Search Index Here options. Click on either and you’ll be taken to Old Movie Exhibition. While you’re there, you may want to bookmark the address, just in case we have another episode with the Blogger service like this past weekend, when we went dark for several days because of a server snafu. That could happen again, of course, but it won’t affect Old Movie Exhibition, as that is an altogether separate website. By all means, let us know what you think of our new feature.


We ran across some fantastic tinted Hollywood portraits last week, and naturally wondered whose guiding hand was behind such inspired work. The search led us to a certain Tom Maroudas of Melbourne Australia, whose ebay listings have lately featured forty of these lovely color creations. We asked Tom’s permission to publish some of his work here, and he graciously consented. The Clara Bow still was "colorized" by Mr. Maroudas himself, and our hats are off to his superb efforts. We’ll be using more of his images in future Glamour Starter postings (by the way, our new search service under genres has an option for Glamour Starters where you can pull up all of our past Glamour pieces) --- and
HERE is the link to Tom Maroudas’ e-mail address, and HERE is his ebay listings address.

Wow. Lots of cool links and a nice compliment to me. Thank you!

Here's a question for you: Whatever happened to Carol Ann "Chaplin," Joan Barry's daughter that Chaplin was supposed to support? Did he continue that obligation after he fled the US? Is she still alive? My wife's been looking for info on her for years.
