Classic Movie Treasures is a site devoted to what we think are the best classic movies. When we started thinking about this intro we were going to say that ALL classic movies are treasures, then we watched some real stinkers. Of course our opinion is just that, an opinion.
We will post new articles on Mondays. Topics will include our Five Favorite; spotlights on Living Legends; Reel Life which is a series dedicated to food, fashion, interior design and more as it relates to the movie experience. It could be a recipe you can make and enjoy while watching movies at home, our favorite “Hollywood” fashion or how you can bring a little bit of the Hollywood glam look into your home.; movie news and more.
On Wednesdays, we post the films we think are the Greatest Films, by year. We started with 1930 and by the end of 2017 we will be in the 1960s.
On Saturdays, since Turner Classic Movies is the definitive television station for classic movies, we publish a list of the movies that we think are “must-see” for the next week.
We also participate in a lot of theme specific blogathons. Those articles can occur any day of the week based on when the blogathon is scheduled.
New movies and new biographies will be added weekly. You can browse the movie database “by actor“, “by genre” or “by decade”. We will be adding “by director” soon. On the movie pages you can watch a movie through our website. We have links to the streaming services Amazon Instant Video, FandangoNow, iTunes. Most of the movies are available through at least 1 of these providers. If available we will also have a link to the movie for you to purchase in the TCM shop.
If you rent or purchase a movie through these links we will earn a very small commission (at no cost to you) from Amazon, FandangoNow or iTunes. Earnings are used to support this site.
If you aren’t familiar with a particular movie, you can watch, in most cases, the original theatrical trailer to see what the movie is about. Most are commercial-free unless we couldn’t find one. A few will contain a banner ad by the trailer provider that you can click the “X” to make it go away.
We have also started an actor/actress biography database for the main stars in the movies we pick. In addition to reading a short biography, you can review their filmography, and Academy Awards information. We will be adding two biographies a week so if your favorite actor, actress or director isn’t in the database, it soon will be.
If you are interested in learning more about your favorite classic Hollywood star, the history of studios, great reference material, and more you need to check out our bookstore.
If the book you are interested in is available for Kindle, whether you want to purchase as a download or if you want the actual book, you can get a look inside the book before you buy it. You can also read the book reviews that are posted in Amazon, without leaving our site.
Once you decide to buy a book, you can choose from Amazon, Apple iBooks, or Barnes and Noble (if available). Some books are also available as audio books through iTunes.
Treasure of the Week
Each Sunday we will pick a treasure of the week and in the future we will let you help decide what the treasure of the week should be. Watch for the poll so you can cast your vote. You can find our pick on the right-hand side of the site. When you click on the image it will take you to that movie in our database so you can learn more about it, watch the trailer, and rent or purchase the movie.
