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!

One thought on “May 2018 in Film

  1. So what did you think of ‘The Narrow Margin’? I’d say it’s one of my favorite noir films…some cool work from Charles McGraw. (Oh wait, I just discovered you reviewed this in June! Never mind…I’ll be getting to it soon!)
