book: The Blue Movie Murders (1972) by Edward Hoch, writing as Ellery Queen

Noirish Posted by John Grant on Mar 17, 2019

Toward the end of the Ellery Queen franchise there appeared three novels featuring Mike McCall, special investigator for the governor of an (I think) unnamed state. This was the third of them (as I realized from internal clues and then a check of copyright dates; for some reason I’d thought i read more

Crooner (1932): Still Crushing on Ann Dvorak

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Mar 17, 2019

I caught up with a nifty little pre-code called "Crooner" on TCM the other day. Because I am pretty mad for the pre-code era of Ann Dvorak, I checked it out and have to admit, it was quite fun (if you're not expecting too much). "Crooner" is just a Warner Brothers quickie (clocking in at 6 read more

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Mar 17, 2019

Neither Carole Lombard nor her two actor husbands, William Powell or Clark Gable, were strangers to the central California opulence in San Simeon popularly known as Hearst Castle. (Bill and Carole are shown near the main entrance in 1931.) This year marks a milestone for the landmark, as it was 100 read more

book: Island of the Sequined Love Nun (1997) by Christopher Moore

Noirish Posted by John Grant on Mar 16, 2019

At his best — as in novels like Fluke, Lamb and Noir — Christopher Moore is close to being our finest living humorous writer. Even his lesser novels, of which this is one, offer good entertainment. Underqualified pilot Tucker Case loses his job flying for the boss of a cosmetics corpor read more

Wolffianclassicmoviesdigest Posted by Joey on Mar 16, 2019

Last year, the whole MCU was turned to dust. Very soon, it’s all going to be put back together again (probably), but how it happens, who survives, and what it all means for Phase 4 is still very much up in the air as what remains will be what is left of marvel going forward. The Soul Stone demand read more

Hard Surfaces (2017, Zach Brown)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Mar 16, 2019

Hard Surfaces is pretty thin. Sometimes it’s translucently thin. The film itself never has any depth, but fairly regularly the actors at least show they could give it some depth, if it weren’t for the thinness. Ostensibly the film’s well-meaning, but that quality comes off as fake. Like writer read more

DER HUND VON BASKERVILLE On Blu-ray From Flicker Alley

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day Jr. on Mar 16, 2019

Flicker Alley presents a wonderful find on home video--a rediscovered and restored 1929 German silent version of the most famous Sherlock Holmes story, THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES.

Caftan Woman Posted by on Mar 15, 2019

This trip to Remake Avenue finds us among hitching rails, horse troughs and copious saloons (leave your guns at the door).
