Portland, OR Metro Area

I'm a Gen X native of the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I reside in a 1940 bungalow, which I would love to restore to its original 1940 aesthetic.

My interests include (but are not limited to): classic movies; classic television; not-so classic movies; not-so classic television; traveling (though lately it's been vicarious traveling); camping, fantasy football; watching football; watching boxing; trying out new restaurants; trying new recipes; reading and learning. You can never learn too much!

Film and Television are two of my favorite things, however.

These are some of my favorites:

ACTORS: Errol Flynn, Gene Kelly, Humphrey Bogart, Joel McCrea, Charles Coburn, Montgomery Clift, Burt Lancaster, Edmond O'Brien, Dan Duryea, James Dean, Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Dick Powell, Robert Mitchum, Robert Ryan, Fred Astaire, Claude Rains...

ACTRESSES: Lucille Ball, Judy Garland, Jean Arthur, Sandra Dee, Ida Lupino, Rita Hayworth, Rosalind Russell, Claudette Colbert, Barbara Stanwyck, Joan Fontaine, Olivia de Havilland, Joan Blondell, Bette Davis, Katharine Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn, Gloria Grahame...

MOVIES: The Long, Long, Trailer, Casablanca, Gidget, Meet Me in St Louis, Gentleman Jim, The Major and the Minor, Clue, Clueless, The Naked Gun, Young Frankenstein, The Princess Bride, Gilda, Mildred Pierce, The Palm Beach Story, Double Indemnity... This list could go on and on.

GENRES: Screwball comedy, musicals, film noir, melodrama, teen beach movies, teen melodrama, "weepies," romance... But I'll give most everything a chance. My least favorites though are sci-fi, horror, war, and westerns... but I'll even give those a chance
