25 Years Later: Princess Diana Lives On

  As today marks the 25th anniversary of Princess Diana's death  we decided to revisit a movie from   TheArchive , a timely piece of nostalgia,   Princess in Love .  It aired only one year before Princess Di’s untimely death. Recounting the true-life story of the rollercoaster love affair between Captain James Hewitt and Lady Diana Spencer,  Princess in Love  suggests that this relationship “destroyed a royal marriage and stunned the British monarchy.” Today we know that the Royals, still an obsessive figment of media attention and global fandom, and no less a tough lot, remain an insulated family but one no longer immune to the demands for parity from an evolving culture relentlessly pursuing an equitable set of mores.  A subdued and gentle Lady Di is played by Julie Cox in a role - while quite outmatched by the indomitable doppelgänger that is Elizabeth Debicki in Netflix’s The Crown - that still exemplifies Diana’s real life sublimation and pulls on one’s heartstrings despite ho

Back to School!

Feels like we were just gearing up for summer at  TheArchive  and now we're already headed back to school! But we always have something for the feed the dog your homework, ditch your responsibilities, and cut class with these throwback high school classics. In  High School USA , a veritable  who’s-who of TV stars join Michael J. Fox and Crispin Glover (pre-Back to the Future) including Todd Bridges, Dana Plato, Tony Dow, Ken Osmond, Bob Denver, and Dawn Wells. An uncredited Brad Pitt plays a bumbling library nerd, and Nancy Mckeon plays off Anthony Edwards before his star turns in Revenge of the Nerds, Gotcha!, Top Gun, ER, and Billions.    In faith based Angel in Training , Desi has problems just like any other teenager but the biggest difference? She gets help from an apprentice angel who's still earning her wings.  Keeping with the faith theme, The St. Tammany Miracle , starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Soleil Moon Frye, features an all-girls Episcopalian

Summer Concert Series Only on TheArchive

Live concerts and events are definitely back. This summer and into fall, people everywhere are trying to get out to see their favorite bands back on tour. From The Rolling Stones to The Gipsy Kings , Stevie Nicks to Michael Bolton , every show seems to sell out before the tickets come online. And for bands like KISS , who kick off their final tour ever next week, good luck getting tickets! But not everyone is ready to race out to join the massive crowds or fight to see their favorites one last time. So  TheArchive  is  bringing some of the tour stops directly to you. We've got the "unseen concert" from Kiss.  Kiss: Live in Las Vegas .  In typical cutting edge Gene Simmons fashion, in 1999 Kiss participated in a concert to be streamed on the internet. Unfortunately as Kiss was about to perform, the servers crashed and over a billion people missed out seeing the performance.  Speaking of Vegas, check out The Who: The Vegas Job .  On October 29th, 1999, The Who gave a one-

We can barely contain our excitement. 54 episodes  of  energetic and uplifting makeovers!
