The 1951 Club now has members all over the world.
- The 1951 Club is intended to be a celebration of all-things associated with the year 1951. Someone asked me why I did a blog about the year of my birth. Simple. It’s easier than doing one about the year of my death.

I really like what you’re doing with this site. I was 6 years old in 1951, the year I started grammar school in a small Iowa town (we didn’t have a kindergarten program until ’51, so I missed it by one year). Also the year I saw “The Thing from Another World,” a great movie that scared the hell out of me. Anyway, your site really resonates with me. Keep up the good work.
Hi there Ted. Nice to meet you. Thank you so much for the nice comments. Please keep on visiting as the site is for everyone so I hope you become a follower. Just had a look at your post about James Bond … terrific stuff! Well written. Also … ” The Thing from Another World ” was pretty scarey. Another brilliant 1951 film was ” The Day the Earth Stood Still “. The robot GORT was in this of course and he is actually a bona fide member of the 1951 Club. ( I tracked him down to a Science fiction museum and wrote him a letter … check him out on the search box).
All the very best and thanks for visiting (You I mean, not Gort!!)
