Disability Pride is Everyday

July 31, 2021
A Vintage Nerd, Vintage Nerd, J Crew Green Dress, Retro Plus Size Fashion, Retro Lifestyle Blog, 1964 World's Fair, Queens World's Fair Globe, Disability Pride Month, CMT Fashion, Disability and Fashion

July is Disability Pride month. Its a time when those of us who are disabled share about our disability and educate those who want to know more. Its a time when the disabled can show their pride about their condition and how they live with their challenges. These are some photos I had taken at the World's Fair Globe for my 10th blog anniversary shoot. I knew I wanted to share some pride in my leg braces so I choose to have extra fun during my shoot.

I am so grateful that I am at a place in my life where I can accept my disability and the use of my leg braces. Fighting myself and wanting to be accepted as "normal", are things I wanted for a moment when I was in my early twenties. It took me a long time to get to where I am but I am here because I put in the work. I am here because I choose to go through the process of loss, anger, frustration, and fear. All those ugly thoughts and feelings that we don't want to experience. I chose to go through them and be on the journey instead of avoiding it.

It wasn't easy. There was a lot of pain, suffering, and loneliness that came with sorting through the challenges of having a disability. But once I went through them I was able to free myself of what I thought the world wanted me to be and just be ME.

On this last day of Disability Pride Month I want to share with you all that for me, every day is disability pride. Every day I choose to live with pride for the body I was given and find joy in my days as they are. 

If you interested in learning more about my disability, Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease, you can find more information HERE.

Old Hollywood Stars Gone Too Soon: Part Two

July 25, 2021

A Vintage Nerd, Vintage Blog, Old Hollywood Blog, Classic Film Blog, Old Hollywood Stars Gone Too Soon

There was a beautiful quote I found the other day from an unknown author that says, "Some are bound to die young. By dying young a person stays young in people's memory. If he burns brightly before he dies, his brightness shines for all time."

I think that holds true for anyone that dies young. We remember them as they were because we never see them change or look different. Many of the film and tv actors/actresses on this list will forever be remembered as we saw them on screen. We never saw Jean Harlow, Thelma Todd, or Marilyn Monroe grow into old women. We also never got to see who they would grow to become as they got older. What we do have are the memories of the characters they played and the gifts of their beauty and talents that are forever saved on film. 

 You can find the first half of this list here, Old Hollywood Stars Gone Too Soon: Part One.

Old Hollywood Stars Gone Too Soon: Part One

It is always heart breaking to see or hear of someone passing on young. For those of us who love watching stories being told on the big and small screens, losing a beloved actor or actress who embodied a character that we connected with or admired is real loss. 

I was thinking of Sharon Tate as of late. I know that some of the people who helped murder her are having parole hearings soon. I read her last living sister is still fighting to ensure that none of them get released. Tate's death at only 26 years old was a blow to Hollywood but also just a devastating loss because she was due to have her son, Paul, shortly. 

It made me think about all of those we lost from the worlds of Old Hollywood and Classic TV who passed on too soon. When I started my research I found more than I thought I would. This list includes those who passed on before the age of 50 years old. 

Although they all passed on far too young, their works and their lives will not be forgotten.

These recipes are some of the dishes made during an Apollo 11 traditional cocktail party.

The Twilight Zone Inspiration: Passage on the Lady Anne

July 18, 2021
A Vintage Nerd, Vintage Blog, Twilight Zone Episodes, Twilight Zone Inspiration, Passage on the Lady Anne, Retro Lifestyle Blog, Classic TV
Episode 17 of Season 4 of The Twilight Zone which aired on May 9, 1963, is one of those rare episodes whose intention is to tell a story solely about love. Romantic love, friendship love, and love of life. If you watch this episode you might only see that it is about a young married couple who are struggling in their marriage and about  a group of elderly people all who are on the Lady Anne for a long trip.

Eileen Ransome ((Joyce Van-Patten) is desperate to save her marriage with Alan (Lee Phillips). She figures this long voyage on the Lady Anne will give them a chance to talk and create more intimacy between each other. Alan on the other hand is preoccupied with thoughts of work and isn't 100% sold on the idea of a long boat ride. They are noticed immediately by two elderly gentlemen who are disturbed by their presence. They offer the Ransome's money so they can get off the ship before it sets sail. Eileen and Alan decide to stay on board and are eventually welcomed into the group of elderly people including the two gentlemen (played by Wilfrid Hyde-White and Cecil Kellaway).

As time passes Eileen and Alan begins to clash but through the encounters with the elderly passengers Alan starts to realize his place in the world and how he truly feels about Eileen. The scenes with the great Gladys Cooper, Hyde-White, and Kellaway are magical in every way. In the end the Ransome's are united in their commitment to their love and their marriage. But out of the blue they are told by their new friends that they must board the small boat they set up for them and they need to leave with haste. Their dear new friends and all the other elderly passengers say their bittersweet goodbyes to them.

So many gifts of love were exchanged during this hour long episode in The Twilight Zone. Eileen's love for her husband, her longing for her own happiness, Alan's lessons of self-discovery and what is really important in life, the deep and meaningful connections with the other passengers, and lastly the fondness that they have for the young couple. You see, that voyage was to be the Lady Anne's final voyage and its passengers were off to life after death. That was the reason everyone on board was old from the Captain (Alain Napier, who famously played Alfred Pennyworth in the Batman television series) to the passengers and even the officers (one played by Cyril Delevanti who acted in four episodes in The Twilight Zone).

This episode showed that sometimes love isn't seen as clearly as it should be, sometimes love is young and sometimes its old, that love can be created through meaningful connections, and lastly that letting go can also be a beautiful act of love.

8 Classic Films About Body Image

June 22, 2021
A Vintage Nerd, Vintage Blog, Classic Body Image Movies, Classic Movie Blog, Old Hollywood Blog, Classic Films About Body Image

The subject of body image has been a taboo and sensitive subject for some time. Film has explored every topic under the sun but the subject of body image has had a slow start. There are only a few Old Hollywood films that address body image such A Woman's Face (1941) and The Enchanted Cottage (1945) but they address the topic so beautifully.

Its not always comfortable to talk about your looks, your weight, how feel when you look in the mirror and all the fears, anxieties, and vulnerability that comes with it. But when I look back at the few Old Hollywood films that did address the topic of body image, I think about the cast that dared to portray these characters so honestly with their "imperfections" all out for the world to see. I also think about the crew and those who helped make such daring films because without these types of films there would be less dialogue and awareness about these subjects.

When I first watched some of these I didn't know what to expect. Some of the body image issues are subtle like in The Old Maid (1939) and The Heiress (1949) but some were very blatant and up front like in  Marty (1955) and Georgey Girl (1966). Today we can find the topic of body image more openly addressed and spoken about but it is a topic that I believe will always have need to be explored and shared.

Here are a few classic films that delve into the delicate topic of body image. Have you seen any of these?

AVN Book Club: Old Hollywood Father's Day Edition

June 20, 2021
A Vintage Nerd, Vintage Blog, Classic Movie Reviews, Classic Film Blog, Old Hollywood Blog, Old Hollywood Fathers, Old Hollywood Book List, Cary Grant
Father's Day is a day where we get to tell our dad how much we appreciate them. We think about the fathers we had or wished we had and the memories that come with that. Father's Day has always been extra special for me because my father raised me after my mother passed away. Being a single father wasn't easy for him but we got through the tough times and remain close. I talk to him every single day and I always feel grateful for having such a good father by my side.

When it comes to Old Hollywood I found that children of stars usually write more about their famous mothers than their famous fathers. I don't know why this is but I think fathers play just as an important role in a childs life as a mother does. 

I did manage to find a few really good biographies of some Old Hollywood dads including Rod Serling. John Wayne, Vincent Price, and Cary Grant. Have you read any of these?

On Monday, July 12 I will be celebrating TEN years as a blogger. I first started blogging in 2011 on Bunny's Victory and from there I moved to A Vintage Nerd in 2013. For the past few months I have been updating my blog and freshening up sections to make it easier to use and more enjoyable. I aimed to finish all my updates before my big anniversary but it is still a work in progress. 

That's the beauty of creating something, it is always a work in progress. I have learned so much from my years as a blogger but there have also been many times that I have fallen off the saddle. Whether it was blogger fatigue, writers block, life challenges, or just creative frustrations. What is important is getting back on the saddle when you have fallen off. 

If you love something enough and are passionate about it, never give up. Keep going and moving forward because at the end of the day you know you are doing something that truly makes you happy.
