「中華民國業餘電台 天津 C7WW Tientsin China」1947
This stage, used in The Phantom of the Opera (1925) and many more movies since, is part of the oldest standing film set in the world. Guess what, folks? Universal Studios reportedly plan on dismantling this fragile set and demolishing its famous soundstage, Stage 28 or the so-called Phantom Stage, built in 1924.
PLEASE HELP SAVE THE PHANTOM STAGE! Sign this petition and this one, too. If you like this GIF, horror movies, film history, or culture in general, don’t delay. Add your name to the petitions and show the studio that you care about this landmark of old Hollywood.
Not long ago, a friend asked me what was the greatest pleasure I got from spending my whole life as an actor. There have been so many that I had to think about that for a moment. Then I said, “Like everyone else, I like to be with a happy crowd.”.
Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor. -Truman Capote, who passed away on this day in 1984.
When I was in girl guides/brownies as a kid I was part of dancing Leprechauns and now that I look at the badge… I feel like all along we were really Ninja Santa Satans dancing around a foam toadstool of the underworld.
