Well, as you can see, GREAT OLD MOVIES has a new look -- finally. Believe me I know there's still room for improvement, but I think overall this looks better than the old format. However, if you disagree, let me know. I am happy to read any and all suggestions and advice. Part of the problem is that I am somewhat limited as to what I can do because some templates would do away with the slide show of my books, and while that isn't the main reason I do this blog, a little publicity never hurt anyone, eh? None of the colors I used for the description seemed to work satisfactorily -- there's no way to even center the main title -- so I put it below the photo, and I went through dozens of stills before I found one that was the right size and resolution and seemed to work with the title words. That's Gloria Swanson in Sunset Boulevard, of course. 

Anyway, I welcome constructive criticism.

Oh, for the two or three of you out there who are interested in reading my opinions of the rest of Twentieth Century-Fox's Jones Family series, more reviews are on the way -- bet you can't wait, LOL!
