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.

Follow along and enjoy, and then get yourself on a disco nap schedule for the festival! Happy reading and happy viewing! Read the rest of this entry

Just a gentle reminder, if The Artist takes the prize on Sunday, it will only be the second time that a silent film has scored a Best Picture award. The first silent film to do so was also the first Best Picture winner, Wings. So, will it or won’t it? We’ll see. Now for the Film Friday Weekly Roundup – the all news edition! Happy reading and happy viewing! Read the rest of this entry

Happy Birthday Louise Brooks

I once got a haircut like this because I secretly wanted to be Louise Brooks. Someone saw me and said, “I like your haircut. It reminds me of Louise Brooks.” It was the happiest day of my life.

Happy birthday Louise Brooks!
