Beginning next year, movie studios plan to begin phasing out renting 35mm prints of vintage movies to theaters, forcing revival theaters to show them in digital format only. This is not how these classic films were meant to be seen, at the push of a sterile button, in a non film format, and many classic films will also fall by the wayside and become lost films - there is an online petition to hopefully stop this by following the link to Fight For 35MM Films...] Thanks to Julia Marchese, New Beverly Cinema and Dark City.

Dee Dee: The book on "Film Noir and Screwball Comedy" sounds really great. What a subject, long in need of this kind of scholarly analysis. I'll definitely be getting my own copy, especially as over the past few years I've succeeded in seeing a number of films in Manhattan that fall under both these categories, as well as some hybrids. Terrific clip here from the classic THE LADY EVE!

Have a great July 4th my friend!

Hi! Sam Juliano...
Oh! yes, at first I thought that was "strange"...Film noir and Comedy, but your post reminded me Of the hybrids that do exist in the world Of Film noir...with that being said, I most definitely, will be adding this book to my cart once the price Of the book drop "severely" too!

Sam Juliano,
I want to wish you, your family, and friends a very Happy Fourth Of July again...Thanks, for stopping by and leaving a comment and compliment too!

'Screwball Comedy and Film Noir' does sound interesting as it's definitely worth letting people know this existed before 'The Big Lebowski' :)

Hi! Sam Juliano...
Please don't think that I'm being "dense," but I'm still trying to figure-out what 40s 50s films are considered comedy-noir?!?

Personally, I just know Of one that I recently, ordered from my DVD seller.
By the way, I'm yet to watch "The Big Lebowski"...ah!ha! your first smiley!

Sam,
Thanks, for stopping by and leaving a comment.

[postscript:Sam Juliano, I plan to send you an email...later this evening.]
