Here’s a chance to win a copy of the new Steve McQueen bio-- On the Marquee

Marvelous review of Crimewave (1954) with lots of screenshots. Can’t go wrong with Sterling Hayden, Tim Carey and early Charles Bronson-- Where Danger Lives

A little love for Miriam Hopkins-- A Mythical Monkey Writes About the Movies

I’m glad Wanda (1970) has been rediscovered. I must have seen it on a bootleg the first time I watched it, many years ago. I remember being fascinated by how interesting Barbara Loden was in the title role, depsite the fact that her character was so passive.-- The Guardian


  1. We here at the Monkey are quite fond of Miriam Hopkins.

    Thanks for the shout out!

  2. I am fond of her as well Monkey. I was a bit wary of her for a few years because she got a negative write-up in a Bette Davis bio. Then I realized that the bitchiness just made her more interesting.
