Well, my laptop decided to chuck a wobbly tonight, but my time was not wasted. I did some research using actual books, not the internet. Yes, children, believe it or not, books are useful too!
The book about the Chauvels is my Mum’s. It’s a fascinating story. The Chauvels really were pioneers of film making in Australia – they even gave Errol Flynn his first starring role!
As for the “Photoplay Treasury”, I found this little gem on eBay. It contains whole articles, photos, stories and advertisements from “Photoplay” magazine, an American “fan” magazine, and it covers the period from the early 1900’s to the late 1940’s. Everyone from Mary Pickford to Rita Hayworth is featured in it. You feel like you’re being transported back in time. It’s just wonderful.
So in the end I added 70 minutes of research to my goal – bringing my total to 550 minutes, so about 110 minutes behind where I should be. But I’ll get there.
