Film Friday | Weekly Roundup
It’s been a busy week at Pretty Clever Films Headquarters thanks to TCM’s Summer Under the Stars. First we’re treated with Lon Chaney day and then Humphrey Bogart day.

- I have never seen Die Nibelungen but this Classic Movie Rambling’s post makes me want to… like right now.
