Sergio (Tipping My Fedora) said...

A lot of Noir this week and surprisingly little horror - I'm sure that will all get changed by next week :) Thanks Todd, as ever - great to be included in such a fine gaggle of enthusiasts.

Todd Mason said...

Thanks Sergio...well, a fair amount of suspense that edges away from noir toward horror, too...

Jerry House said...

Thanks, as always, for doing this, Todd.


Slight typo. The colon after PURPLE DEATH FROM OUTER SPACE gives the Brian Greene TED talk a whole new meaning.

Todd Mason said...

Mwhahahahahah. Ahem. Thanks. Purely...accidental...(in the voice of the host of INNER SANCTUM...)

Kelly Robinson said...

It's sweet that you're linking my placeholder posts. I do have some completed reviews this week, including Lon Chaney's THE UNKNOWN. (My boyfriend had a stroke, so I'm just posting as I have time, but I'm still watching a silent film a day. I can watch them while he sleeps.)

Todd Mason said...

Terribly sorry...I saw your mention of someone close to you having a stroke. I figured that linking to your placeholders would be fine, if and when you were able to get to them...as long as this blog is up, those links will be in place, and SF gets a lot of old link traffic. Best of luck to both of you going forward...hope his recovery is swift and complete.
