Ariana Guerra was born in Texas and was a student at the University of Texas. She began her theatrical studies at the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts and Film. However, she didn’t stop there.

At this post time, she had almost two dozen on-screen credits and had made appearances in shows like Nashville and Dynasty.

Movie Lobby Cards

It is often difficult to find complete lobby card sets from pre-1970 movies, since many of these sets have been broken up and sold by the individual card.

Movie lobby cards are similar to posters yet much smaller, usually about 11 x 14 inches. They are collectible and come in sets of 8, sometimes 4-6, and as many as 15 have been created. In the UK they were known as “Front of House” cards and were usually 8 x 10 inches.

Tony Dow Dies

Everybody’s going to have an opinion. But I think the show is the most natural and most realistic representation of the late ‘50s, early ‘60s that was on the air. And most of the stories came from real life. – Tony Dow

Tony Dow is best known for playing Wally Cleaver, son of Ward (Hugh Beaumont) and June (Barbara Billingsley) and older brother of the Beaver (Theodore- Jerry Mathers) on the 1957-1963 TV sitcom, “Leave It To Beaver”.

Topaz (1969)

What is TOPAZ? Is TOPAZ a person? A code name? A mystery? It’s all of these and more.

I watched this 1969 Universal Pictures Drama/Spy Thriller Alfred Hitchcock’s “Topaz” on Netflix DVD. This was the extended cut at 143 minutes. Don’t miss the Hitchcock cameo, about 30 minutes into the film.

CIA agent Mike Nordstrom learns of the missiles with nuclear warheads and recruits French agent André Devereaux to prove this intelligence.

Pandorum (2009)

A disease founded by emotional triggers, usually found in deep space missions, a feeling of fear. Thinking you can’t be saved, you may find yourself in a state of Pandorum, or extreme fear of being alone. Thinking there is nothing left, usually causes craziness.

I watched the 2009 suspenseful science fiction horror movie”Pandorum” on Netflix DVD. It is definitely for true science fiction fans and did not do well at the box office. It is a British-German film directed by  Christian Alvart a German filmmaker and screenwriter.
