The month in blogging:

While the month was low in viewing, it was a good month on the blog!

Most of the month was filled with new-to-me reviews, as usual, but there were some fun features, too. First off was a list, ten films I’d love to see on the big screen.

The most exciting part of the month was its celebration of film noir, Noirvember. Noirvember has been celebrated by classic film fans on social media for many years, having been originally coined by Marya Gates (aka @oldfilmsflicker). This year, I made five posts in this theme, throughout the month: A list of five films noir on my collection wishlist, plus reviews of When Strangers Meet, Backfire, Decoy, and No Man of Her Own.

You may recognize No Man of Her Own from Barbara Stanwyck’s filmography list. That review did double duty for Noirvember and the Stanwyck Project. The Stanwyck Project saw one other update in November, 1973’s The Letters.

Collector’s Corner had one update along with the noir list. I kicked off a series within a series, which will share the films I own or am coveting from my favorite stars. Of course, the series had to begin with Cary Grant!

That’s it for this month in review. I hope you all had a great month!
