Around and about.

Recently, a couple of our posts were linked over at the LAMB …

  • The Director’s Chair honoring Alfred Hitchcock was this past weekend. Two of True Classics’ posts were submitted and linked to for the event: a review of Vertigo and Brandie’s excessive lauding of Shadow of a Doubt. Go check out the links to the other wonderful entries and get yo’ Hitch on.
  • Our post on Old Acquaintance was recently linked on “Classic Chops,” a weekly LAMB celebration of all things classic film. I’ve found some amazing blogs by checking out this weekly feature!

Are y’all watching the TCM documentary series Moguls and Movie Stars? The first episode, “Peepshow Pioneers,” was broadcast this week, and I’m already hooked. This seven-part series is an examination of the history of the first few decades of film, from its beginnings in the late 19th century through the rebellious late 1960s. And not only is it a fascinating look at moviedom, but it’s narrated by none other than the great Christopher Plummer. The first installment repeats tomorrow (Saturday) at noon EST, so if you missed it this week, make sure you catch it then. The rest of the series unspools every Monday night for the next six weeks.

Wishing you a wonderful and (hopefully) relaxing weekend …
