The month in blogging:

September was a pretty small month for the blog, too, but I covered several very enjoyable films:

  • Murder on Diamond Row (1937) – The jewel thief caper gets a gimmicky twist in this tale of a blackmailing gangster who chooses to communicate with his underlings through finger-written messages on steamy windows.
  • Star of Midnight (1935) – Ginger Rogers and William Powell team up for this mystery-comedy, which you’ll love if you love any other William Powell mystery-comedy.
  • The Smallest Show on Earth (1957) – British comedy has never been more charming than in this story a couple who inherit a run-down, old movie palace — complete with a few eccentric employees who’ve been there for decades.
  • The Very Thought of You (1944) – It’s a wartime romance for Dennis Morgan and Eleanor Parker in this sweet story of a soldier who meets his soulmate on leave. Just a lovely watch!

Happy October, happy Autumn, and happy viewing to you in the coming weeks!
