Dimitri Kirsanoff, the genius of MENILMONTANT (1926) was still slugging away in 1955, assisted here by the beauteous Marina Vlady. LE CRANEUR forms the basis of this week’s edition of The Forgotten, and you can read it (and see a few things) here.

Shambolically late with the latest Forgotten, which should by rights have appeared last week, but I’ve been busy with another piece for MUBI which you’ll be able to read soon, and with video work for Criterion and Masters of Cinema and teaching and whatnot.

The year I was born some guy I never heard of made a film of a book I would become very keen on years later… LE GOLEM, here.

The first edition of The Forgotten for 2017. I don’t even know if this one should qualify as “forgotten” but as MGM musicals go it’s a lot less well-known than ON THE TOWN. What are you gonna do? — we’ve been watching Esther Williams movies to make Fiona feel happier. It’s working!

Get Happy also!
