May was another small viewing month ’round these parts, and I completely forgot that today was the first of the month, so I apologize for this post going up so late! (As I type this, there are just 40 minutes left in the day.) Though the time I was able to carve out for viewing in May was pretty minimal, I still wanted to share what I watched. On to the movies!

The month in blogging:

Though May was a light viewing month, I managed to stick to the blog’s schedule and covered a lot of fun stuff.

Collector’s Corner saw two updates in the Star Collections subcategory: Ginger Rogers and Bette Davis. I’m considering both of these phenomenal ladies as subjects for my next filmography project, so if you’ve got a preference between them, feel free to leave your input in the comments!

The “Favorite Things” film for May was a punny old favorite, The Mummy (1932), chosen since May is the month of Mothers’ Day here in the US. (Could I be any cornier?)

The infrequently-updated Classic Stars on the Small Screen series saw a new entry, looking at the 1956 Screen Directors’ Playhouse episode “Claire,” starring the great Angela Lansbury.

Other than that, we had a lot of plain ol’ reviews… featuring less-than-plain films. My second-favorite discovery of the year so far, History is Made at Night (1937), was a highlight. Also covered:

…And there you have it for May! Happy June, and I hope you all have a wonderful month!
