Classic Links

Though I've become a bit overwhelmed by how many online streaming options there are now, I'm excited to check out Shout Factory TV, the new streaming option from Shout Factory. They haven't posted many movies yet, but it's free and I've already spotted a few things I'd like to check out--Shout Factory TV

I love this huge gallery of African American performers compiled for Black History Month. It reminds me of so many of my favorite moments in film and music--Once Upon a Screen…

It looks like 35mm film will survive for at least a bit longer. I hope filmmakers come to appreciate the different possibilities available to them in both digital and film--/Film

Alec Baldwin's take on movie stardom and Marlene Dietrich is perfect--Stargayzing

Film website Black Maria held a hugely successful screening of Libeled Lady (1936) in LA, just for the joy of creating a communal film experience. They are fundraising to launch more screenings in other US cities--Black Maria

I never thought a movie review would make me say, "wow, I really want to see that Richard Dix flick," but the day has come--Laura's Miscellaneous Musings

SNL's goofy alternate ending for Casablanca (1942) envisions Ilsa totally horrified by the thought of sacrificing everything for Rick and ready to gas up the plane and make her escape--Screen Crush

I love these British stamps with television and movie themes. How can I get my hands on one of those Thunderbirds stamps?--Kine Artefacts


  1. Thanks for the shout-out, KC!


  2. You're welcome! I would have loved to have been there. You guys will have to do it in Seattle some day :-)

  3. LOL re Richard Dix. I know just what you mean! He was downright adorable which is not something I think of when I think of Richard Dix. Thanks for the link!

    I hadn't seen the Black Maria post on the screening yet, I'm heading there now to read it!

    Best wishes,

  4. I know adorable? Never would have thought it. I'm looking forward to checking it out Laura.
