September promises to be a busy month here at True Classics! Not only are we signed up to participate in several blogathons hosted by some of our favorite classic film bloggers, but we have some interesting posts on tap. Here’s a taste of what the upcoming month will bring …
October marks the 70th anniversary of the release of the granddaddy of film noir, 1941’s The Maltese Falcon. We’ll be celebrating that milestone a little early with a series of posts next week focusing on the film’s impact and influence on the noir genre. We’ll also take a look at the first two movie versions of Dashiell Hammett’s famous story, 1931’s The Maltese Falcon (sometimes labeled Dangerous Female to avoid confusion) and 1936’s Satan Met a Lady, and compare those adaptations to their more famous successor.
The following week will be filled with blogathons and guest posts. On the 15th, we will be participating in the Margaret Lockwood blogathon hosted by Terry at A Shroud of Thoughts. On the 16th, Brandie’s second contribution to the “Top 70 Greatest Musicals” countdown will be posted at Wonders in the Dark. And on Sunday, September 18th, we’ll be joining in CMBA’s “Guilty Pleasures” blogathon with an entry about the 1946 musical trifle Cinderella Jones.
The end of the month will be just as busy. On September 24th, Angela at The Hollywood Revue is throwing a “Fashion in Film” blogathon. And on the 30th, Sophie of Waitin’ on a Sunny Day is hosting a “Darling Deborah” blogathon to celebrate the 90th birthday of the ever-lovely Deborah Kerr.
Throughout the month, we’ll also continue with new posts for some of our regular series, including Saturday Morning Cartoons, Who’s That Girl?, and Feminist Fridays. It’s going to be a jam-packed month, so we hope you enjoy everything that’s coming up in the next few weeks!
