Let's see how well we classic film fans know the names of the characters of the films we watch.  It's easy to play.  Someone names a character (well-known or lesser known character, but the lesser knowns will, of course, be more challenging).  The…Continue

    A Forgotten Film to Remember: Eyes in the Night

    Tomorrow, January 27, TCM will celebrate Donna Reed’s 94th birthday by showing a selection of nine early films, including her first feature The Get-Away. My favorite film on the list is the crime thriller Eyes in the Night, which I have singled out as a Forgotten Film to Remember. MGM signed Donna Belle Mullenger to […]

    I know a fair bit about the history of Italy post-World War II, of its painful recovery, it’s economic boom, and of its sad decline amid the infamous “Days of Lead,” but Mike Malloy’s documentary EUROCRIME! THE ITALIAN COP AND GANGSTER FILMS THAT RULED THE ’70s (2012) still had a few things to teach me. Focusing on […]
