About time I announced that, as usual, The Late Show: The Late Movies Blogathon will run from December 1st to December 7th. Posting about directors’, actors’, and whoever else’s late or last works for the cinema is welcomed. If you have a blog, post to it and I will link. If you don’t have a blog, would you consider writing for Shadowplay? We welcome guest bloggers.

Whether the movie is mainly wretched (Lew Landers’ TERRIFIED!) or deeply sublime (here’s to THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND), we hope to run lots of incisive, funny, sympathetic, wide-eyed writing on the subject. Over the years we’ve covered a lot of movies, but there are plenty still to be tackled (THE BELL OF HELL, whose director plunged to his death from the movie’s bell tower on the last day of shooting; BLUE and GLITTERBUG, made when their director was blind; CARNIVAL OF SOULS, a first film that is also a last one).

No hurry to sign up, but if you have any ideas, weigh in below!

(Maybe next time we’ll have a First Films Blogathon in January…)
