New Forgotten! Over at the Auteurs’ Notebook, where we conclude our jaunt through the blacklist with Edward Dmytryk’s OBSESSION. Leave your comments over there, guesses as to the origin of this post’s title over here.

On the Whiteness of The White Sheik

As far as I can tell, my plan to have an April 1st Film Club on Fellini’s THE WHITE SHEIK is still on track. Not that I’ve watched the film yet, but Fiona and I submit the latest draft of our screenplay on Friday so there should be a chance to do so. I mention this so that those of you without a copy can just about have time to procure one, watch it, and join the discussion on the aptly named All Fools’ Day (aptly named since, when all’s said and done, what else is any of us?).
