HOLLYWOOD’S AFTON FRASER PICKS THE CLASSICS
Who better to dish on Hollywood’s golden age in cinema then tinseltown insider and our friend Afton Fraser? Known by friends and family as a encyclopedia of classic movie stars, story lines and cinematography… Afton shares her passion with a broader base in the book “Hollywood Picks the Classics.” As Afton tells Talking Tigerlily’s, her early childhood memories are of watching black and white movies and dressing up as a young scarlet. Today, Afton looks like a scarlet of years past but carries the sensibilities of what entertains the modern women. “Themes from old movies are the same themes that we deal with in everyday life and see in the block busters that command the silver screen today, ” Fraser says.
As for her favorites, Afton rattles a list like the roster on a pro-athletic team. From Lauren Bacall to Humphrey Bogart to movies like The Maltese Falcon and Love Affair; all of these images define a generation that Afton Fraser carefully puts together for easy reading and visual enjoyment. Having finished this genre, Afton tells us she is ready to tackle the Classics for Kids!
