Classic Film Bloggers: Some of my Favorites Part I
Here are some of my favorites classic film bloggers, what I like about them and what they have posted recently that is of particular interest to me. Enjoy!
Allure ~ http://operator_99.blogspot.com/index.html
What I like: A biographical sketch and beautiful vintage photographs on starlets from the 20s and 30s. Not only beautiful to look at, but its great to be introduced to lesser-known actresses and maybe get a good film recommendation while you are at it.
Recent post I enjoyed: A sketch and pictures of the tragic Peggy Shannon. http://operator_99.blogspot.com/2008/02/peggy-shannon.html
Classic Montgomery ~ http://classicmontgomery.blogspot.com/
What I like: Not only do I love the idea of being a "fangirl", but I also love this chic blog whose focus is primarily the great film actor, Robert Montgomery. Photos, articles, video clips, TCM schedules and general posts about related actors.
Recent post I enjoyed: Picture post of images from Montgomery's film The Big House (1930), which I have never heard of but now am dying to see. http://classicmontgomery.blogspot.com/2008/01/big-house-1930.html#links
Greenbriar Picture Shows ~ http://greenbriarpictureshows.blogspot.com/
What I like: Lots of photos and film posters accompany an in-depth article which focuses on one particular film. Never boring, the language is jazzy and the content is genuinely interesting.
Recent post I enjoyed: Post on D.O.A. one of my favorite film noirs. Did you know that stomach abuse was popular is postwar noir? Right in the belly! http://greenbriarpictureshows.blogspot.com/2008/03/another-1949-crime-scene-if-high.html
Relative Esoterica ~ http://relativeesoterica.blogspot.com/
What I like: The writing is absolutely supberb. I feel more intelligent just after reading one post. A mix of film as well as music, this blog is something I can really sink my teeth into.
Recent post I enjoyed: An exploration of dog stories in film and literature, with a focus on Jack London. http://relativeesoterica.blogspot.com/2008/02/call-of-dog-story.html
These are only a few of many. I'll post about my other favorites in another installment.
