I've recently had a huge interest in old movies and the history of film, it all started when I caught a glimpse of Audrey Hepburn on TV in Breakfast at Tiffany's which is an early 1960s movie. I used to ignore anything I classed as "too old" especially in black and white because I didn't want to bother with them, I wanted colour and modern day life I can relate to, after watching that film it changed my mind, I saw the difference in attitudes in the 60s and what was acceptable then which wouldn't be now aka the Japanese character played by a white man in a derogatory way. The fashions, the lifestyles, the culture it all intrigued me to dig deeper so since then I have been I've seen movies from the 1920s onward and I really enjoy exploring this new world of film I had closed myself off from.
I haven't yet ventured into Asian film history however I want to do so, find out who the stars were in certain time periods, for Korea, movies from before the split of Korea into North and South and during the Japanese occupation. However to do this I first need to be able to find these movies, to find information on them and of course to add them to my list on here. I have started to add a few movies and actors from research but I was hoping there may be other people who are interesting in finding out more about this who could maybe help, there is a youtube channel which has lots of old Korean films with English subtitles for example, we could even try to work out how to get people to translate movies that are only available raw or to find a way to get movies that aren't currently available online.
If anyone is interested in doing so this can work for all the countries on here. Let me know what interests you about old movies and who are your favourite actors/actresses or which are your favourite films.
