For the Love of Film (Noir)

Hey all! The second annual Film Preservation Blogathon, for The Love of Film (Noir), hosted by The Self-Styled Siren and Ferdy on Film, will take place on February 14-21. Details at the Siren's site:

I feel a Dick Powell in tough guy mode screencapping session coming on.... (I LOVE Dick Powell, in ANY mode, whether he's crooning in a Busby Berkeley film or getting all hardboiled in a noir...)

The hosts are the Self-Styled Siren at http://selfstyledsiren.blogspot.com/ and Ferdy at http://www.ferdyonfilms.com/ and you can find the links for all the participants at their sites.

I am participating in the blogathon at http://paulasmoviepage.shutterfly.com where you can find all of On Dangerous Ground, screencapped for your viewing pleasure. ;)

"Well, Ida, how much money do you think they'll raise this time?"

"I don't know, Robert, but I sure hope it's a lot so we can get Cy Endfield's The Sound of Fury properly restored!"
