Yeah well I don’t gif a fuck
The absence of women in history is man made.
TV MEME: [5/5] Male characters - Freddie Lyon
It makes it more real, seeing the boom! The mechanics of how we bear witness, because that’s what we do, what one tries to do. Reveal fleeting moments of history, not with apology, not as it is now! Endless static newsreel, a man who never leaves his desk, delivering the story as if it’s the dry, five-minute warm-up act to Hancock’s Half Hour!
Oh my, that fox one. I love it..!
Ninety years ago on this date, April 17, 1924, three companies merged to form Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, better known as M-G-M, which would become the largest, wealthiest, and most prolific studio of Hollywood’s Golden Age. As founder Louis B. Mayer said, “I want to make beautiful pictures about beautiful people.”
Many of the most important and beloved American movies, including The Big Parade, Grand Hotel, The Wizard of Oz, and Singin’ in the Rain, to name just a few, were made at M-G-M. It has been estimated that about one fifth of movies ever made in the United States were partially shot at the studio. This footage comes from a behind-the-scenes tour short, made in 1925, soon after the establishment of M-G-M.
