You certainly got a very eclectic bunch together this week chum - good to see plenty of Orson Welles in there for his centenary!

Todd Mason said...

Indeed...this s, I believe, the largest and one of the more diverse arrays so far...and thanks for your engaging contribution...Milland in that film somehow reminding me of Jimmy Stewart in BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE...

Thanks for including my entry Todd despite these not being what you refer to as A/V but please do not call them evil adverts. Vintage ads would be fine. Evil is a very strong word and not to be used lightly.

Todd Mason said...

Fair enough, Neer...though they do strike me as at least evil-adjacent.

Love the way you refer to them now. :)
