My Classic Hollywood “Origin” 

My Classic Hollywood “Origin”

Growing up in the 1990s, not many people my age know names like Carole Lombard or Cary Grant.

While there are many not fortunate enough to experience such great actors, I was lucky enough to grow up with a mother who absolutely loved them.
