  1. I love finding a seemingly unknown, never-heard-of-before movie that hits all the right notes, and does great things in a small, unassuming package…one you don’t want to tell anyone about because they probably won’t like it as much as you do. That, for me, is ‘My Name is Julia Ross’. Tomorrow at 1:30 pm, and also available in TCM’s Film Noir Classics III collection!


      1. Cool, Lindsey! Hope you like it…I may just dive in and buy that TCM Film Noir III set, and watch it again! Last night I went out of control and bought six of those TCM ‘Greatest Classics’ 4-paks (including that awesome Cary Grant set), so why not toss another $45 to the wind, right?


        1. I’d love to collect all of the Film Noir Classics collections but I’m waaaay to cheap to ever buy them. They’re a pretty good deal since you get a decent number of films in each set but I’ve been trying to do my DVD buying in much smaller increments, allowing myself a $3 bargain every once in a while to ease the temptation of splurging on my whole wishlist, haha.
