Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Oct 2, 2022

I have the same problem every October – most of TCM’s schedule is filled with horror films (which I simply cannot abide), and the pre-Code and film noir pickings are generally slim. This year is no different, particularly on the pre-Code side, but I finally managed to identify two non-scary films read more

If you ever heard the music of big band leader Si Zentner you would know that he is famous for his exciting bold brassy sound, so, when the James Bond films exploded onto film in the early 1960s with their bold sound as well, it seemed a natural choice that Si Zentner would release an album of Bond read more

“Photography is truth, and cinema is truth 24 times a second.” Although Le Petit Soldat was released in 1963 — no thanks to the censors — it was actually filmed in 1960. This context is all-important because Jean-Luc Godard is still fresh off the sensibilities of Breathless, read more
