The ongoing Comedy Countdown at Wonders in the Dark is in full swing, and my second contribution to the event is now up on the site!
By sheer coincidence, number 69 on the countdown is the 1955 animated short One Froggy Evening, directed by none other than the subject of our week-long animation celebration, Chuck Jones!

My first contribution to the ongoing Comedy Countdown at Wonders in the Dark is up now … at number 79, it’s one of my favorite romantic comedies, 1959′s Pillow Talk, starring the ever-adorable bathing pair of Doris Day and Rock Hudson.
Head over there now to check out the post, and feel free to join the conversation in the comments! And if you haven’t been keeping up with the countdown, there are twenty-one other movies that have been discussed thus far, so make sure to check out those posts as well!
First of all, my contribution to “March-in-March,” the wonderful tribute to Fredric March hosted by Sittin’ on a Backyard Fence, has been posted! I’ve taken a look back at 1942′s I Married a Witch, in which March notoriously clashed–on screen and off–with temperamental costar Veronica Lake. Make sure to check out ALL of the great entries that have been posted at the Fence throughout the month!
Secondly, we want to extend our sincere thanks to all of our readers and subscribers for helping us reach an amazing milestone today–300,000 page views! This calls for a celebratory happy dance.
We are grateful to each and every one of you, and hope that we can continue to deserve your interest throughout the third year of our blogging existence. :)
And finally, I know I said I would be posting entries in our ongoing “Women in Hollywood” series this month … well, March has gotten away from me (this is, unfortunately, nothing new), but I’ll have a couple of posts up later this week before the month winds down to a close. Look for the first one to go up either tomorrow or Thursday, and another on Saturday (as part of our “Pioneers in Animation” series!).
Today, my contribution to The Lady Eve’s Month of Vertigo celebration is up at TLE’s Reel Life–all about Kim Novak’s sometimes underestimated contributions to the film. Thanks again, Eve, for inviting me to participate and allowing me the chance to revisit this film!
And for more things Vertigo, here are some thoughts about the film that I posted back in 2010.
Make sure to catch all of the entertaining and insightful posts that have been posted thus far–and will continue to be posted throughout the month–by the incomparable Lady Eve.
My second contribution to the ongoing countdown of the “Top 70 Musicals of All Time” has been posted over at Wonders in the Dark. This time, the focus is on the wonderful 1953 Cole Porter musical Kiss Me Kate, which was ranked at number 48.
Head on over to Wonders in the Dark to check out this post and the other interesting, informative entries that have been posted in the countdown thus far!
