  1. Reblogged this on Speakeasy.

  2. In with BLACK NARCISSUS!

  3. Ooh, I love this year. I’m writing on Born to Kill for another blogathon and on three 1947 Academy Award winners for another. But since no one else will likely choose it, I think I’m going to go for a post on George Cukor’s A Double Life.

  4. Great year for a Blogathon. Could I do BOOMERANG.

  5. This is going to be so much fun!

  6. I wonder if I might “pick on” a lesser entry from that year: HOLD THAT LION!, a Three Stooges short. It’s noteworthy mainly because it has the only appearance of Curly after he had retired following a stroke. There’s also a lot of interesting trivia associated with the film.

  7. Excited for this! I submitted a form for ‘Dark Passage.’🙂

  8. Dibs on Odd Man Out! My blog is Defiant Success (http://movienut14.blogspot.com).

  9. Reblogged this on and commented:

  10. I submitted a form for Something in the Wind. My blog is Pop Culture Reverie. https://popculturereverie.wordpress.com/

  11. May I take A Gentleman’s Agreement? If that’s not available, The Egg and I would be my 2nd pick. Thanks!! (http://kelleepratt.com for OUTSPOKEN & FRECKLED) Thanks!!

  12. I’ve signed up with “Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome”. It speaks to me!

  13. Okay, I’m in. I’m working up a piece on Heartaches at the moment; may well add a couple of others if I have time.

    Thanks for organizing this!

  14. Reblogged this on Noirish and commented:
    Another great blogathon organized by shadowsandsatin and speakeasy.

  15. This is a great excuse for me to go back for Dick Tracy’s Dilemma and hopefully Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome as well.
