Classic Links

I've been enjoying the coverage of the Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival in Palm Springs at Laura's Miscellaneous Musings. It sounds like a wonderful event and I definitely plan to attend one year.

Raquel has just launched her third annual Summer Reading Classic Film Book Challenge at Out of the Past. The challenge: read and review six books over the course of the summer. I'm going to try for a third successful year, but I'm not sure I'll make it this time!

This is a great interview with Jane Fonda, conducted at Cannes Film Festival.I appreciate her honesty.

If you are a fan of Ann Blyth, be sure to check out Another Old Movie Blog in June. Blogger/author Jacqueline will be giving away a piece of Blyth memorabilia every day in celebration of her upcoming book about the actress.

Peter Bogdanovich talks about the battle to complete Orson Welles' final movieThe Other Side of the Wind.

And here's the link for the Indigogo campaign to fund completion of the film. Imagine backing an Orson Welles film!

UPDATE: And now an unfinished Orson Welles memoir has been discovered 30 years after his death. This is an amazing time for Welles fans!


  1. Thanks so much for sharing my coverage of the Arthur Lyons Film Noir Fest, KC! The more people who know about it, the better! A great time is guaranteed. :)

    Best wishes,

  2. I really do hope to attend some day Laura. The idea of a relaxing film festival at one venue really appeals to me. Not to mention that I love noir!
