Leslie Vera, aka CactusLes, is Movie Forum's unabashed
fan of old movies. She's got her definite likes & dislikes just
like anyone and is not one to think "If it's old it must be good" in
spite of her preference for old movies.
Les lives in Central California with her husband, who doesn't watch
enough of the classics, three kids, who are just starting to watch the
classics (yay!), and two dogs, who argue over whether Rin Tin Tin
or Lassie was the better dog.
Having shared her thoughts with the Movie Forum crowd for a good few
years now, Les agrees the only thing that would be better than jawing
about all these movies is to actually go and see one with these folks.
One of these days.....
- Classic Movies
