  1. Thanks again for this blogathon; I’ve found some great blogs

  2. My favorite of this group is The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer! I can’t count how many times I’ve watched it! Also love Angel and the Badman. I thought Tyrone Power was great in Nightmare Alley even though it’s not one of my favorites!

    • Thank you so much for reading, and for your comment. I will have to check out Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer — I’ve only seen bits and pieces. Same with Angel and the Badman — and I LOVE Gail Russell. I totally agree with your assessment of Tyrone Power — he was awesome in Nightmare Alley — his best performance, in my opinion.
