September Songs

Ingrid Bergman commands you to LOOK — at this week’s edition of The Forgotten over at The Daily Notebook.

Vincente Minnelli’s last, shattered dream, “A MATTER OF TIME,” is our subject, a haunted half-film lost somewhere between conception and resolution, with the crass fingers of Samuel Z. Arkoff making unwelcome intrusions around the edges — but still, there’s enough beauty and passion in it to make the bittersweet experience worthwhile for hardcore Minnellians, I’d say.

  1. David, don’t forget that today you also have a very funny Gilda limerick up at Limerwrecks.

  2. I went looking for it but I don’t think it was up when I posted this. Will link to it tomorrow — although interested parties can locate it via the blogroll on the right of the main page here.

  3. No big deal. You’re going to be on Limerwrecks a lot this October. Y’know, for some reason I don’t see the blogroll–or anything else –to the right.

  4. And I think our days might just start on different sides of the planet…

  5. Hey–the sidebar just magically appeared!

  6. Oh, I get it. It’s just stupid me. It’s not there when I’m making a comment. D’oh! Now that I’m in my dotage I guess I’ll have to get used to such public embarrassment.

  7. Y’know, like when i have a conversation with myself…

    I wouldn’t even have recognised Ingrid Bergman in the photo!

  9. Recognition comes and goes in this one: sometimes she’s very much herself, and sometimes almost a self-parody.
