Todd, I have a small post on FAST FORWARD (1985) for Overlooked Films this Tuesday. Many thanks.

Yvette said...

Sweetie Todd, I've decided to take the rest of the month off. No blogging for awhile. Just resting. Just taking it easy. Just decided last night.

Apologies for this last minute notice. :)

Todd Mason said...

Not at all, Yvette...summer heat has that effect on most of us to one degree or another.

I'll choose to blame the heatstroke on managing to forget to check your blog, Prashant...a thousand pardons, please. Thanks!

Todd, no problems. I ought to have informed you in advance considering I haven't been regular these past few weeks. Truth is I have hardly seen any overlooked or forgotten films in recent months, preferring to read in my spare time. I have fleeting memories of films I saw years ago, like FAST FORWARD, for instance.
