yes, yes, I know...
We haven't had a post in over a week. Believe me, it has been one doozy of a week. With finals in a few of my classes coming through, it should lighten up just a bit. Meanwhile, when I can spare a little time, I've been watching films for review here on the Shelf.
Here are the upcoming reviews being written, written, or worked on by the staff here at The Shelf:
Forbidden Hollywood Vol. II
The Fall of the Roman Empire
Bette Davis Signature Collection Vol.3
Classic Musicals from the Dream Factory Vol.3
Sabrina the Teenaged Witch the Complete Animated Series
What Not to Wear: Mom Makeovers
Trading Spaces: The Specials
And a couple more coming up - so stay tuned this week. We will also have a special post on Frank Sinatra and the goings on in May at TCM.
In the meantime- I've got a short polling question for all you Shelfers out there. I am finishing up a film studies class and I have been showing classic films to the class, which has been their first exposure to them. What film would you recommend for a first time viewer of classic films. The class has seen, among others, The Third Man, In the Heat of the Night (which they loved), Rio Bravo, The General (Keaton) and others. What are your picks? Please put your suggestions in the comments section of this post and we'll gather your picks for a future post on an introduction to classic films!
I've got to get busy writing - busy, busy, busy!
