Hey Warren William fans, just wanted to let you know I’ve got a new place to write about classic film in general, a regular column on Examiner.com as the NY Classic Movies Examiner. This is really going to be an extension of the MovieMeld column I’ve been writing on my other blog the VintageMeld, so if you’re aware of that one and like it, it’s basically getting a change of address.
Here’s my first article on the pre-code Fredric March and Sylvia Sidney film Merrily We Go to Hell.
Besides announcing it, there’s yet another reason I wanted to post about my new gig over here. Look over my shoulder in the photo I used and you’ll see my little Warren William tribute.
It was a bit of a pain to do, A) because the only way I have to snap a pic of myself is from the webcam mounted on my monitor, which B) by design has a background cluttered with collectibles which C) aren’t at all relevant to a Classic Movies column! And finally, D) the movie poster behind me is not framed so it took me about 20 minutes to get it positioned properly taking care not to ruin it!
As you may know, I’m a dealer of vintage movie cards and collectibles but at the same time I don’t touch movie posters–it’s not an area I’m knowledgeable in and there are plenty of experts already doing fine without me in this area. But I have bought a few Warren William posters for my own collection when I’ve had the chance. This one is for one of WW’s Lone Wolf pictures, One Dangerous Night (1943). Just for you, here’s an image of the full poster:
Hope you enjoy what I do in my new bit of space. I think you’ll notice a definite concentration on my favorite periods for classic movies, the 1930’s and 40’s which will lean more towards the earlier part of that span.
