I’ve got a bit of news to those who’ve been following Journeys in Darkness and Light for nearly four years. First of all, thank you for reading and for joining me on this journey. If this sounds like I’m saying goodbye, I’m not. I’m simply moving to a new platform: my own website.
Once again I’m honored to be one of the contributors to the most recent issue of The Dark Pages: The Newsletter for Film Noir Lovers, edited by Karen Burroughs Hannsberry. In the January/February issue I’m honored to have two contributions: “What’s New in Noir?”, a new column that looks at recent film noir releases on Blu-ray and DVD, and “Maigret on Disc,” a review of two Inspector Maigret movies starring Jean Gabin on Blu-ray and DVD from Kino Lorber.
Once again I’m honored to be one of the contributors to the most recent issue of The Dark Pages: The Newsletter for Film Noir Lovers, edited by Karen Burroughs Hannsberry. The November/December 2017 issue is a GIANT edition focused primarily on the 1946 film The Postman Always Rings Twice. This giant-sized themed issue is always an exciting annual event and I am so fortunate to be included with some fantastic writers including Raquel Stecher from Out of the Past: A Classic Film Blog, Patricia Nolan-Hall at Caftan Woman, Amanda Garrett at Old Hollywood Films, Kristina Dijan at Speakeasy, and Karen Burroughs Hannsberry at Shadows and Satin. I hope you’ll explore these and the other great writers in the issue.
This November/December 2017 edition includes my article, “How MGM Went from Glamorous to Salacious with The Postman Always Rings Twice” as well as articles on the film’s adaptation from the James M. Cain novel, examinations of the film’s characters and actors, the film’s costume design, original reviews of the film, an impressive photo gallery, and much more. It’s a real treasure trove for film noir fans.
So if you love film noir and aren’t already subscribed to The Dark Pages, you’re really missing out. You can request a sample issue and subscribe here. You can also follow The Dark Pages Facebook page and Twitter feed @TheDarkPages. Embrace and enjoy the darkness!
I have always loved to write things down. Before there were blogs, there were blank books and I filled up tons of them with journaling, diary entries, personal goals, song lyrics (not mine, thankfully; people who could actually write songs), and – of course – movie reviews.
