Just had a 'Brief Encounter' with SSO Guest Author of The Essentials, Jeremy Arnold. Looks like he's working on another book for TCM. He has just hosted 11 intros on the FilmStruck streaming service... Sue Sue has been busy in LA researching Thelma Ritter: Hollywood's Favorite New Yorker.


Happy Thanksgiving!
