Todd – I’ve been reading your blog for a while and would like to contribute to this week’s roundup with this post about the noir film, “The Scar.”
– Thanks for your terrific weekly feature. – EB

Todd Mason said...

Done! Thanks, and welcome.

Sergio (Tipping My Fedora) said...

Thanks for including my somewhat pre-emptive post, Todd! I really thought Christopher Lee would last forever

Todd Mason said...

He made a good try...and most of his latter-day characters are as potentially immortal as Dracula...though, sadly, he has to settle for what immortality his work brings him. Even though you didn't tag it, I took it as the likely A?V for you this week...I take it you might be on vacation from blogging in the next several weeks?

Todd, thanks for linking me to your blog. Much appreciated.

However, the link to NoirWorthWatching/ 'Postmark for Danger' seems to go elsewhere.

Thanks, and sorry about that. Blogspot sometimes refuses to play well with Apple machines.
