An actual blog entry for the blogathon — Peter Nellhaus looks at a Shadowplay favourite over at the always stimulating Coffee, Coffee and More Coffee — H.G. Clouzot’s perverse and haunting last feature, LA PRISONNIERE.

In addition to that welcome news, we’re happy to bring you an older post by Mimic Hootings, commemorating AN INNOCENT WITCH, the last a late film of Gosho Heinosuke, here. It fits right in, so who cares if it’s five years old? Sink into an atmospheric bit of film writing!

And finally (for now), here’s the first contribution from Limerwrecks, celebrating in song the demise of the Universal MUMMY series with THE MUMMY’S CURSE. And again here and here and here Finally, he rests! Or does he?

Daniel Riccuito’s article on Beautiful Babs, which I had a tiny frozen hand in, has a new home, at MUBI. Here. Substantially reworked from the version that appeared at The Chiseler, and so worth your time revisiting.

Festival burnout struck me on Wednesday and I fell asleep during Heinosuke Gosho’s gentle comedy THE BRIDE TALKS IN HER SLEEP (1933) — I have never fallen aslep in a movie in my life, but my usual nocturnal insomnia and the warmth of the venue had me slipping into Morpheus’ embrace the instant the lights dimmed. So since then I’ve been aiming myself at the kind of stuff that keeps you awake — Freda’s THE HORRIBLE SECRET OF DR HICHCOCK, Pabst’s Hitler film THE LAST ACT, the restored LADY FROM SHANGHAI. And an early night tonight.
