Hi! I just stumbled upon your WONDERFUL blog here, after googling "'to have and have not' 'screencap' 'bacall'" (haha, a little random), and I'm so happy!! I really hope the older links still work because I am so incredibly excited to get to watch these old movies! I've just recently gotten interested in the classics (I read Gone with the Wind recently, and vaguely remember watching the movie when I was much too young to appreciate it, sadly) and was hoping I wouldn't have to go rent all these movies and spend so much money (that I don't have!). I just want to thank you so much for being so generous with your time in order to share these amazing films. Is there a list of your films somewhere so I can see what else you might be able to upload in the future?
