Around the Blogosphere This Week

Miscellaneous bits of news and fun stuff from around the internet...

...This weekend's roundup is quite short, owing both to a dearth of new classic film release announcements and my own busy schedule this weekend. I anticipate sharing more about today's excursion to Los Angeles here soon.

...Leonard Maltin has a nice overview of some recent film books; here are links for Part One and Part Two. He also includes a book on Walt Disney World on his lists.

...As a train movie enthusiast, I enjoyed this article on "The Glamor of Travel in Classic Films" by Meaghan Walsh Gerard for DVD Netflix.

...CBS recently interviewed Sandy Duncan. Don't think I'd heard anything about her in years so it was great to check in with her. She's certainly faced some significant challenges.

...I enjoyed Raquel's informative article on a pair of films airing this weekend in the Turner Classic Movies "Follow the Thread" series, PARIS FRILLS (1945), aka FALBALAS, and PHANTOM THREAD (2017).

...Notable Passings: Actress Faye Marlowe has passed away at the age of 95. The films in her fairly brief career included HANGOVER SQUARE (1945) and JUNIOR MISS (1945)...Actor Paul Sorvino, the father of actress Mira Sorvino, has died at 83...Tony Dow of TV's LEAVE IT TO BEAVER has passed on at the age of 77...David Warner, memorable to me as Bob Cratchit in the George C. Scott version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL (1984), has died at the age of 80.

...For additional recent links of interest to classic film fans, please check out my July 23rd roundup.
