Hi, I’m Judy. As you might have guessed, I’m a fan of classic movies, from the 1930s and 40s in particular. Some of the reviews on this site are quite long and often I do discuss the whole plot. My interests include pre-Codes and the gritty Warner Brothers movies of the period, as well as Shakespeare and literary adaptations.
One of my favourite directors is William Wellman, whose work I’ve been slowly covering on a vaguely chronological basis, but I also like many others and am trying to widen my interests and catch up with a lot of good films I have somehow missed. A bit more about me – I’m 52 and live in England, am married and have two kids, who are now grown up. I worked for a local newspaper for 30 years, first as a writer and then as a sub-editor, and am now a copywriter for a marketing company.
