Love some foo the piccies you've got there Todd, especially that one of Leigh Brackett - lovely!

Todd Mason said...

Thanks! I do like to get them in when possible...and decided to show restraint in not using the more impressive stills from Tattoo...a terrible film but one which is remembered usually for the degree to which Maud Adams and Bruce Dern are not shy. And in several ways an interesting film you chose this week...thanks.

Brian Busby said...

Greetings Todd,

I forgot to send this your way. It's really more a book review - but the title in question is a novelization of a lost silent film:

The Story Without a Name

There be stills!

Kelly Robinson said...

Todd--thanks for the link! I'm surprised you didn't link my newer Film Dirt post about the first werewolf movie, but I'm happy to get any readers at the film blog. (I'm focusing on it more than the book blog these days, since it jibes more with my book research).

I'll make my way through these links when I finish writing today. Thanks again!

Todd Mason said...

Brian--thanks--that is definitely enough of a multimedia curio to qualify.

Kelly--thank you...I managed to follow your book blog link to the first of your new posts in your film blog but somehow failed to see the subsequent ones...amusing coincidence, to me, that I first became aware of Agnes Bruckner (Pop My Culture guest for this week's link) because of her starring role as a werewolf in Blood and Chocolate...and Welcome back!
