This past year has been a trying experience under the best of circumstances.  Families stuck together 24/7 for weeks at a time. It could drive anyone crazy as little quirks that were once "cute" are now a thorn in the rest of the family's side.  However, what if you were trapped in a London flat with your significant other w...

Gertrude Pridgett was born in April 1886 in Georgia…or, if you believe the 1900 census, she was born in 1882 in Alabama.  Regardless, despite her humble and uneventful beginnings, Gertrude would go on to become known as Ma Rainey (Viola Davis; Suicide Squad) a.k.a. the "Mother of the Blues".  She recorded music with the b...

In an age of Pixar/Disney/Illuminations computer-drawn animation, it's difficult to imagine "old school" hand-drawn feature films.  They are time-consuming and one wrong stroke of a pen could mean throwing out a drawing and starting all over again.  They also don't have the same level of precision or coloring that a comp...

Fairytales…they tend to start off with "once upon a time", end with "…and they lived happily ever after", and include at least one magical, fairy godmother.  Most little girls get the idea of a handsome prince sweeping them off their feet and their very own fairy godmother transforming them into beautiful prin...

Just when you think every interesting story about WWII has been told and retold, along comes another, and this one as compelling as any that came before. "The Last Vermeer", is a tale of mystery, of Art Fraud, and the weeding out of Nazi collaboration at the end of the war. It's also a gripping courtroom drama with twist after twist and a...
