THE ARGYLE SECRETS, over at The Notebook, forms this fortnight’s edition of The Forgotten. With a gratuitous tip of the hat to the late James Garner.

At The Chiseler, more Blogneys! What are Blogneys? Go here.

Very busy with a couple of DVD extra essays, one of which may be connected to the source of the above bilingual intertitle, but it’s a secret — if you guess what the film is, keep it to yourself or tell me in private and I’ll tell you if you’re right.

But, so you don’t go away empty-headed, here are a couple of links to The Chiseler.

I wrote a short “editorial” if you can call it that, inspired by the current situation in Gaza and by a comment by Daniel Riccuito on the theme of proportionate response. Here.

And I created some more Blogneys. If you don’t know what Blogneys are, go here.

Daniel Riccuito started this by hitting pause during a Warners credits sequence as the screen wiped from James Cagney to Madge Bellamy. Above, Cagney yields to Joan Blondell. I made a set of these and Daniel has posted them at The Chiseler, where you can go feast your eyes off. Here.
