We have always been fascinated with the Hollywood Royalty of the 50's. 
Their lives intrigued us; their movies inspired us; their lifestyles enthralled us.  Today's actors lack the privacy that stars of the 50's were cloaked in.  Now every indiscretion is printed world wide.  Paparazzi stalk their every move, reporting every aspect of the star's life, to where no secret lays hidden for long.  Gone is the alluring mystery that held us spell bound, along with the fake facade of perfection.  Today's stars are all too, human and frail.

Fans of BBC Series!  There are some amazingly, wonderful shows on BBC.  If you have never watched a BBC series, you are in for a treat!  The acting is delightful and BBC actually features mostly older actors in their series, which those of us over 50, really appreciate.  Finally mature, intelligent story lines and actors worth watching!

A few of our personal favorites are "Last Tango In Halifax", which actually is centered on a couple in their 70's who managed to find each other after 60 years a part.  The family of the couple are more then fun to watch, with their own totally dysfunctional lives and families.  Do watch "Last Tango In Halifax".  You'll be glad you did.
