This is my very first You Tube video (posted on my Grandson's channel). Naturally it is about my love of movies [Smile] :

Beautiful editing, Paul. These days, most montages cut too quickly and don't allow for one to enjoy the moments, but the pace you set is just right. Your juxtaposition of one image reacting to another is great fun! Thank you for sharing this.

Nicely done Paul [Smile]

Terrific job! I completely agree with Paul Suchy....the pacing is perfect. Great use of Elmer Bernstein's wonderful Hollywood and the Stars theme.

Great selection across the board, and you have a good eye for cutting. Excellent! The only thing on playing it back is that I had to set the YouTube player to "1.5 times speed" to achieve natural motion, but at that pace, it runs very well

They had faces then. Beautiful job.

I have always loved that theme song! Well done, Paul!!!!

Very impressive. Reminded me of 'Pieces of Silver' but at a slightly slower pace. Few faces I didn't recognise. Very well done.

It has a certain "Reflections USA" (Precious Images) quality to it as well.

-do a better job than I have: my YouTube page is 9 years old and it still has only one video on it!

I have something like 10 subscribers: they must be very patient!

Thanks so much to everyone for the very nice comments. This little video was a labor of love for me, and the hardest part was having to leave out so many other great stars of that period, because of the time constraint of the music track. But I think the length of the movie is just about right.

Brilliantly put together Paul. Clearly a man of many talents! [Smile]

Well done Paul, I spent a bit of time lately [Roll Eyes] getting the video to a 16:9 ratio plus a couple of scenes added. Its a great thing you-tube when I can get the hang of it [Big Grin]
