Film Friday | Weekly Roundup

Pretty Clever Film Gal’s fingers were flying all week to bring  you the Toronto Silent Film Festival preview this week, resulting in what may be the first ever silent film induced case of carpal tunnel syndrome. But don’t fret my pets, this did not slow me down from my self-appointed rounds of idly surfing the interwebs. Neither did the uncommonly sunny and warm March weather or the sudden reappearance of Speedo Guy in the courtyard.

That’s right on March 29, a mere 13 sleeps from now, we’ll be watching a startlingly young Joan Crawford doing a shimmy in Our Dancing Daughters! Oh and that is just the start! Stayed tuned to PCF all next week for wee previews of the fantastic program. And in the meantime, check out the awesomeness that they interwebs coughed up this week! Happy reading and happy viewing!
