Here’s what I’m up to this month:
We watched Laura, which we haven’t seen in…I dunno, fifteen years? It turns out that I had misremembered a major plot point, which made the actual reveal in the movie very interesting.
We watched Sunset Boulevard, which somehow neither of us had ever seen. It was…wow. Gloria Swanson is amazing. William Holden was also wonderful as the World’s No. 1 Manbaby. Ugh, I hated Joe so much.
I haven’t done much reading, but I did crack open A Century Of Noir and note which stories are written by women (only five of them, UGH). I’m starting with one by Leigh Brackett.
My big plans for the second half of the month:
ETA: I totally forgot that Will and I are also planning to watch Gaslight. He gave me a copy last Valentine’s Day, because he is hilarious. I love this movie, and cannot fucking believe that Charles Boyer is credited about Ingrid Bergman.
