I've never seen these gorgeous Marilyn Monroe photos before. I love the black and white contrast.
A bunch of great bloggers are featured in the current issue of Dark Pages. Check it out!-- Laura's Miscellaneous Musings
True Classics is always so good about staying on top of all the blogathons out there. There are tons coming up. I might not be able to resist the Cagney one--True Classics
I love this essay about Phantom Lady (1944), especially the last line--Sunset Gun
Kevin Kline as Errol Flynn in his last days. I can see that. Maybe some biopics are worth making--The Guardian
I can never read enough about Tati's Playtime (1967), especially when the writer really gets it like Sheila does. Beautiful screen caps too--
The Sheila Variations
A lot of these clips featuring Orson Welles are interesting, but that last one always gets me (ignore the creepy animation and just listen). In this harangue he launched into while recording audio for a commecial, Welles reveals so much about himself. I used to think it was funny, but now I sense the sadness and frustration he felt having to take ad gigs to support his projects--Roger Ebert's Journal
Look at how many of these "meet cutes" are from studio-age classics. I guess things haven't been very cute since then--The Guardian
