Tripod, for some unknown reason, (which they still refuse to explain to me) deleted a huge part of the website and won't give me the account back. So I've moved the files to VictorMature.org Just click the graphic above to view all of the files. Thank you so much for your patience during this time while I've been moving everything! :)
THIS SITE IS BEST VIEWED WITH INTERNET EXPLORER. I'VE BEEN USING FIREFOX A LOT LATELY AND FOR SOME REASON THESE NEW FILES AND THE TRIPOD ONES DO NOT SHOW UP LIKE THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO. SO FOR YOUR BEST VIEWING EXPERIENCE PLEASE USE INTERNET EXPLORER OR SAFARI. THANK YOU :)

26 September 2017 - For this BIG Victor web update I've added all of the photos and information from the past YEAR. Yay so happy to have it all up! :-) I've added TWO NEW SECTIONS to the site. Part of the site used to be hosted on Tripod so I'm using two of those original accounts again because it's quicker to get the updates done that way. So check out these TWO TRIPOD ACCOUNTS that are part of VictorMature.net - VMature.tripod.com and VictorMatureRadio.tripod.com There are 13 pages on one and 6 on the other so check out all of the fantastic Victor pictures and info from the last year! (Sorry about the word "undefined" on the Tripod pages. That is some Tripod error and I'm hoping they fix it very soon!) IMPORTANT NOTE: Firefox browser and others are not allowing FLASH unless you specifically turn it on so make sure to HAVE FLASH ENABLED for the main page because there is a lot of flash on it. I've added the Twitter feed to the main page also so make sure and check it out! Also check out these pages on the regular website: ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE, TEN, ELEVEN for tons of amazing Victor photos and articles!

12 August 2017 - For this mini update here are 4 pages of new articles and pictures! - One Million B.C. On Blu-Ray, The Victor Mature Annual Turkey Shoot Golf Tournament, Victor's Golf Tee, and Vic In The Coast Guard Color Pictures.

12 June 2017 - Happy 100th Birthday to Victor's first cousin Julia Mature!!!! Check out all of the wonderful pictures from her party and the video clip! June 8th was Julia Mature Day in Louisville! https://www.facebook.com/groups/15391611879/permalink/10155407298426880/?pnref=story Two pages of great Vic photos have been added: ONE, TWO. I will be updating the site with the past 2 years of fantastic Vic pictures soon!

1 February 2017 - I've moved all of the Vic files to my new computer and uploaded half of the files from 2016. Make sure to check them all out! You can see the gorgeous full sized original pictures! They are here: ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE, TEN, ELEVEN, TWELVE, THIRTEEN, FOURTEEN, FIFTEEN, SIXTEEN, SEVENTEEN, EIGHTEEN

17 April 2016 - For this update I added 19 pages of photos and 8 pages of News. My computer ran out of room and I'm moving everything to a new computer so all of the pages are just white and not formatted like usual. So sorry! I wanted to get everything updated from this past year and uploaded before I moved the files to the new computer to make sure nothing gets lost. Make sure to check out all of the fantastic photos and news from the past year! There are several ones that I didn't put on Facebook so make sure to check them all out! Here are the photo pages: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S. Here are the news pages: A B C D E F G H. Thank you to the fans who posted pictures on Facebook and sent them in!

28 December 2015 - Thank you to award winning artist Ed Seeman for sharing his wonderful portrait montage of Victor on our website! Check out his website for more of his amazing work and read about his fascinating career! www.edseeman.com -- Just a little update on the website: I will be re-writing the poster part of the site VictorMature.info in the new year. Right now if you go to VictorMature.info it forwards to VictorMature.org I had to move VictorMature.org to a different host for now because Tripod doesn't let you link directly to their files. VictorMature.org is up and working perfectly. I left a backup copy of that part of the site at: VictorMature.tripod.com Check out the fantastic picture of Victor from The Veils of Bagdad here! I will also be updating victormature.net with all of the wonderful photos and articles that have been posted on Victor's Facebook pages and groups over the past year! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

8 June 2015 - Check out the July 2014 to June 2015 update.

January 2015 - Some of the older information that I'm archiving I will be adding to this 2015 update page instead of the main index page so for the most current updates make sure to check out the main index page, the Facebook feed and the 2015 Update page to make sure you get to see everything!

I've added two pages. I archived Victor's 101st Birthday Celebration from 2014 here. Also the Film Society of Lincoln Center Announces 2015 Jewish Film Festival - Cry of the City is featured. Thanks so much to Victoria for the information!
