Summer is here and things are chugging along here at Journeys in Classic Film. If you voted in the poll, either on the site or on Twitter, thank you so much! It sounds like most of you want Kristen Recasts the Classics and Fridays With… to return. Hopefully you all looked at the first Kristen Recasts post of 2017 on Elmer Gantry. In terms of Fridays With… I’m contemplating doing a complete filmography series, posted on Fridays, about one star, as opposed to rotating monthly to a new star. Don’t hesitate to let me know in the comments if you prefer one concept over the other.
Also, my classic film podcast Ticklish Business turns one year old on June 29th so if you aren’t listening you should. I’m prepping to have my first podcast contest so you can win some swell prizes! Something else I’d love to get your opinion on is The July Five. Is it a series you want or, since Fridays With… will be returning, do you feel it’s redundant? Let me know. That’s on top of more book reviews and the last of my TCM Film Festival coverage.
I’m excited for another exciting summertime talking classic cinema with you! If there’s something you want to see – whether it be a review or another means of engaging with the community – don’t hesitate to engage me via comments, email or Twitter!
I'm a college student getting my Master's in English, but dreams of getting an additional degree in Film. I'm a movie reviewer for several sites, but I also write classic film reviews for several other sites. I stretch myself pretty thin these days. You can usually find me at a bookstore, or a movie theater. I dream of the day when the two are combined. I base a lot of my friendships on favorite movies.
