Celebrating Doris Day: April in Paris (1952)

Monsieur, soon it will be springtime in Paris. The children will be dancing in the Bois de Boulogne; men with tiny carts will be selling marrons chauds in the streets, and everywhere young couples will be in each other's arms, kissing. Have pity on a man who only breathes, lives, and loves when he's in… Continue reading Celebrating Doris Day: April in Paris (1952)

Love is No More Than the Touching of Two Skins: Goodbye Again (1961)

I'll admit this - ever since my earliest days of blogging, as soon as I figured out what a "blogathon" is, I kind of wanted to take part in one... but, I guess I never really had the time or I didn't come across a subject that appealed to me enough.

120 Years of Alfred Hitchcock: Films I’ve Seen

On this very day, August 14th, we mark what would have been birthday of one of the most celebrated movie directors... *drumroll* Alfred Hitchcock! (Okay, I really suck at writing these introductions, I know).

Anthony Perkins’ Birthday And a Movie Review

Today we celebrate what would have been Anthony Perkins' 87th birthday and I'm happy to say that I honored him how he deserves, by watching one of his movies (whose review is also included in this post)! I have to admit that I'm quite new to the Tony Perkins fandom - if there's such a… Continue reading Anthony Perkins’ Birthday And a Movie Review
