Hello, classic film fans! My name is Brandie and I am the co-founder of True Classics, having served as its head writer and editor-in-chief since its inception.
I am a freelance writer and editor. As of late, my specialty has been ghostwriting and editing memoirs, something I thoroughly enjoy doing. I love hearing other people’s stories, and it’s even more fun to have a hand in helping preserve their personal histories.
Movie-related things to know about me: I am obsessed with classic animation, ranging from silent black-and-white shorts to the candy-colored contributions of UPA and beyond. I particularly love the classic Disney canon, with my ultimate favorites being Alice in Wonderland and Fantasia. My top five favorite movies of all time are Casablanca, Singin’ in the Rain, Bringing Up Baby, City Lights, and Shadow of a Doubt. Screwball comedy is my favorite genre, and Preston Sturges my favorite director. I’m learning to love Westerns, but will likely never enjoy horror no matter how much I try. I adore Barbara Stanwyck, and find Katharine to be the superior Hepburn. Cary Grant is my personal Jesus. Robert Osborne is my patronus.
In addition to my writings posted here, I can also be found contributing to sites such as The Black Maria, Wonders in the Dark, and Part Time Monster. You can find a list of additional guest posts I have contributed to other blogs here.
