ONTD Original: The Old Hollywood/Classic Movies series


Hey everyone! I shared this idea for a series about Old Hollywood/Classic Movies where I would only focus on one movie star at a time (found at this post).

Before I begin with featuring different stars, I thought it might be fun to include a historical overview of Old Hollywood/Classic Movies. I'll try my best to make it interesting and not boring. ;] But I'd like to gauge interest first. (Please note: I haven't written anything yet.)

Are you interested in an overview of Old Hollywood/Classic Movies?
