Film Friday | Weekly Roundup

Wowee – is my feets sore from doing the Charleston with Joan Crawford in Our Dancing Daughters! Last night was the opening night of the Toronto Silent Film Festival and fabulous it was. But despite sipping bathtub gin til the wee hours of the morn, this jazz baby is hard at work this morning to bring you the best of the interwebs. That’s dedication my friends! Stay tuned for my review of Our Dancing Daughters and in the meantime you can amuse yourself with these links. And of course, leave some time to get yourself tickets to tonight’s screening of F.W. Murnau’s Tabu! Happy reading and happy viewing! Read the rest of this entry


Film Friday | Weekly Roundup

Pretty Clever Film Gal tried to visit her favorite pool hall last night (yeah, so what?) and found it full of people dressed in business casual, wearing name tags and eating chicken on a stick. What in the ?!?… oh right, it must be holiday office party season. Nothing says office party like chicken on a stick! As the weather cools (look – it’s snowing!) and the holiday party season heats up, don’t forget to indulge in your favorite holiday movies. My personal favorite  is Gremlins. And don’t forget to make your movie themed wish lists for friends and loved ones! (I cannot recommend The Birds Barbie enough.)  If you need some ideas, take a quick trip around the interwebs, courtesy of PCF. Happy reading and happy watching!

Pretty Clever Film Gal is contemplating renaming Classic Movie Puppy from Abby to Norma Desmond. Since moving to Toronto (and away from ready access to the adoration of millions in NYC), CMP has been flouncing about the house like some faded movie diva. The picture could only be complete is she was actually wearing a silk robe, turban, and those feathery slipper things. At the end of yesterday’s walk, after failing to engage a single reserved Torontonian in some impromptu sidewalk pets, she seemed rather dejected. So I said, “Abby, you used to big in NYC.” And she replied, “I am big. It’s the town that got small.” Touche, Classic Movie Puppy, touche. Despite catering to the every whim of my little diva, Pretty Clever Film Gal scoured the web for the latest and greatest, so you don’t have to. Happy reading and happy viewing!
