    Acting School 101 – July 2021 Introduction – Tom Cruise

    Rob from MovieRob here!

    I think that this series is a great way to get a look at what the members of the Lamb community think about the work of some of the most prolific actors/actresses who have been entertaining us all for so many years.

The Movie of the Month for July 2021...
