It's All In Black and White


I was so excited to be contacted by Turner Classic Movies (TCM) yesterday, and asked if I would like to write about some of their upcoming programming. You know I love my old movies , so I was all over it. They have a great series coming up in June hosted by John Lithgow to introduce the younger viewer to the classics. There's even one I haven't seen, Mr. Hulot's holiday.
Stay tuned I may get some fun giveaway stuff from TCM in the future. Hope you and any children in your life enjoy the shows.

That's fantastic!
Wait, the 1978 version of Heaven Can Wait is a classic? I saw that in a movie theater. Yikes, I'm getting old.

Wow, how cool! You didn't tell me about this. The motherland contacted you!
I watched Singing in the Rain AND Seven Brides for Seven Brothers on TCM last night.
