Todd, I was working on a post about two like films that I thought I'd offer for Overlooked Films this week but, unfortunately, I ran out of time. I'll have them ready for next Tuesday's meme. Thanks for the inclusion of my non-filmy post and responding to the one about "Scream" magazine.

Todd Mason said...

Not at all, Prashant...thanks for writing up the fair and soliciting comment. Looking forward to your film post as well!

Sergio (Tipping My Fedora) said...

Great dedication to Elmore Leonard, Todd - thanks as always for hosting.

Todd Mason said...

Times sadly call for some statement, however slight...thanks for your contribution, Sergio...I, for one, hold your selection of THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR as one of your least controversial choices (though of course THE MALTESE FALCON and MURDER MY SWEET are pretty hard to argue with as well)...

Kelly Robinson said...

I didn't expect a link, so thanks! I wish I could come up with a way to write about films on my blog, but since it's book-centric, I feel like I'd be straying off topic. Ironic, since I'm working on a book that's film related.

Todd Mason said...

Dan Stumpf particularly has begun writing up books and their film adaptations, which kind of reverses what you did with the IRONSIDE tie-in...
