Website created by Derek McLellan

"This site focuses on the Golden Age of Hollywood that incredible period when the cinema was at its peak from the golden 20s to the swinging 60s. The big studios dominated the industry and many movies now recognised as classics were made.  I hope this site will be enjoyed by those who already love classic movies as well as newcomers just beginning to discover the gems of the Golden Age of Hollywood." - Derek McLellan.
