The past few days I came upon a few mentions of Warren William on other blogs and thought I’d post the links here to tide you over until I get my own next post up.
Finally I was very happy to come upon Livius of clydefro.com’s post from today imagining Ten Warner Box Sets That Should Have Been. Our boy is front and center on the page as the dream box set of The Mouthpiece, Skyscraper Souls, The Match King, Employees’ Entrance, and The Mind Reader is imagined for a Forbidden Hollywood Set #4 … if only!
As for over here I hope to cover The Case of the Curious Bride (1935) very soon and am also working on a special somewhat biographical post.
I let my Now Playing Guide subscription lapse, but while I was putting together a Ginger Rogers Star of the Month schedule on Immortal Ephemera I did spot a couple of Warren William programming alerts as part of the Ginger schedule: Gold Diggers of 1933 airs at 9:45 pm EST on Wednesday, March 17 and Upperworld is on at 7:00 am EST, Thursday, March 25. Hopefully my Now Playing subscription picks up again in April so I can be more dutiful with my alerts going forward!
Speaking of TCM did you catch the documentary The Brothers Warner the other night? Right before it aired TCM played one of it’s Breakdowns blooper reels and WW showed up 3 times.
Finally, I picked up the Arcade Card shown below on eBay a couple of months ago. It measures 3 X 5.5 and is printed on very thick cardboard. It’s the first time I’ve seen this particular type card and nobody was going to outbid me on it … thankfully there wasn’t any, I got a real steal!
That’s it for now, hope you those posts listed above, they’re all excellent!
