Thanks, Todd. How was The Yellow Wallpaper talk? I rarely look at FB so did not see it till it was over.

Todd Mason said...

Sadly, I wasn't ware of it till it was in I have no ken of it so far...but it sure looked interesting.

Sergio (Tipping My Fedora) said...

Thanks for the bumper crop Todd - that is an absolute torrent!

Todd Mason said...

And it's not done yet...though perhaps at this point I should hold the rest of the catching-up, including yours, Sergio, till next Tuesday...further life-interruption.

Elgin Bleecker said...

Thanks for the roundup, Todd. Glad to see Overlooked is back. And thanks for including my posts.

Todd Mason said...

Not at all, Elgin...sorry I've let other things take precedence for so long. And just as this was getting a little head of steam. Thanks for your contributions, and I can only hope for more when you're of a mind to write them.

Hi Todd! Thanks for including TOP GUN 2. As always, it was thoughtful of you.

Todd Mason said...

Though, of course attempts at future blockbusters are technically the opposite of what our focus is here! Thanks for contributing.

Thanks for all these great links , and for including my look at the poverty row studio,PRC
Your links are especially welcome as the Ultimate Movie Blogroll seems to have disappeared.

Todd Mason said...

Well, thank you, Vienna, for all your fine work...I have been unfamiliar with the Ultimate item, but I've damned near been stopped in my tracks, and perhaps it's catching...hope the proprietor there has been having a less trying time.
