39 Step Programme

Posted in FILM with tags , , , , , on March 30, 2012 by dcairns

I have contributed an essay to the Criterion Collection’s new Blu-ray of THE 39 STEPS. Which is exciting.

And there’s more — for the Blu-ray of Masters of Cinema’s THE LOST WEEKEND, another essay. Double the excitement.

Although, I must say, the work carries a greater sense of responsibility than, say, blogging about THE MAN WITHOUT A BODY. If either company would like to release some really stupid, shoddy movies for a change, I’m definitely up for essay duty.

If you pre-order the films from Amazon via these link, I get a little percentage, so that’d be nice.
