The Inside Look of an Old Movie Fan

About a week ago, Raquelle did a blog post with pictures of her movie collection and t.v. I was going to do it but then I realized my movie collection is really small and the t.v. is being used right now, so I thought why not take pics of old movies and things that I have. So Enjoy, it took me a while to get all the pictures on here but I'm glad I did it.

Pictures of Jeffrey Lynn when he was younger including one with his brother on the bottom left corner

Jeffrey and Janet Gaynor, seriously when I saw this picture I had to get it. I love Janet Gaynor and Jeffrey Lynn. :-)

I joked that I would have a Jeffrey Lynn museum and people would have to pay me $1 to get in, unfortunately I would be the only one to get in. Hahaha

I just realized that my apartment needs a James Dean cut-out! Where do I find one? Haha.
A lot of great books I want, too. Sigh...

Wow, you have a lot of neat stuff! I love the James Dean cutout-- I'm a sucker for lifesize cardboard stand ups. I made one of Hitchcock last year using foam board and packing tape. It doesn't look too professional but its funny..

I want to read that Douglas Fairbanks Jr book! It sounds neat!

And you COULD start a Jeffrey Lynn museum! I'd pay you $1 to get in :)

So you like Jeffrey Lynn?

Thanks for participating. This is great! I loved seeing pictures of your movie collections. You have quite an assortment of photos.

I linked to your post on my original one. :-)

What a terrific take on Raquelle's idea. I just may have to do another post that focuses on all my memorabilia, because I have lots too. :)

YOU HAVE THE SALAD DAYS?! I am so envious! I have been dying to get that book ever since I started collecting bios. I was looking at some (on Amazon, I think) that were actually autographed. Doug, Jr. is probably my most favorite actor, so the idea of getting to hold something that he held, is beyond words in excitement!

I'd pay to visit you're Jeffrey Lynn Museum too! That scrapbook is amazing. Where did you find all those photos and clippings?

Lolita- Haha I actually found my James Dean cutout at a halloween store not to far from where I live. I also have seen it online but I'm not sure what websites.

Kate Gabrielle- Thanks! That's pretty neat about the Hitchcock cutout. If you get a chance to read Douglas Fairbanks Jr's book, you won't be disappointed. It was fantastic.

Haha thanks!

Raquelle- Yes I adore him, no problem at all I really enjoyed doing it. Thanks!

Casey- I got my Douglas Fairbanks Jr autobiography on ebay for about $20. It is a really great book and I hope you get the chance to read it soon, you won't be disappointed.

Haha thanks! I got clippings and pictures on ebay and let me tell you they weren't that expensive at all.

Bubblewrap- Thanks, lol that's funny. Aren't the TCM books great?

Sebina- Thank you!!
