After his success in Tod Browning's "Dracula," Hungarian actor Bela Lugosi (1882-1956) refused the role of the monster in "Frankenstein" because he believed all the grunting required of him would be beneath his dignity as an actor. Ironically, however, Lugosi tended to accept any script offered to him in which there was plenty of dialog. The result was a string of low-grade Z pictures that were basically parodies of his great success as Count Dracula. "White...

Last year I found a Thomas A. Edison movie, "Sky Scrapers of New York City From the North River", shot in 1903 (Library of Congress). It inspired me to catch the Stockholm waterfront from Djurgårdsfärjan, the ferry between the Old Town/Slussen and Djurgården. It's early spring and noon, rather bleach colours. You round two small islands (Skeppsholmen and Kastellholmen), formerly and partly still reserved for the navy. The Royal Castle and Skeppsbron - the Old Town eastern...

Traditional rye field at Skansen open-air museum in Stockholm in June 26 2007. The rye grows high and is swaying in the wind. In both clips are seen buildings moved from the Swedish countryside to the open-air museum about 100 years ago - the 18th century wooden church from Seglora parish and a farmstead. The title refers to a poem by Robert Burns.
