Elsewhere: The Doomed to Repeat the Past Edition

Some sad and frustrating news: According to Michael Blake, Universal plans to tear down the historic Stage 28. Inside Universal has more about the closure, and the rumor that the demolition is to make way for more theme part attractions. There’s a petition to save the stage here, already at 1,400 signatures as of this…

Elsewhere: The Rainy Season Edition

Thanks for your patience during SBBN’s downtime last week. The site should be stable from now on, though my time here will remain limited because of some life issues; to be both vague and blunt, I have to spend my time making money and not entertaining the masses for free. Speaking of free, here are…

The Big Elsewhere

Unused poster art for Radioland Murders (1994), courtesy 3B Theater!   It’s been a while since I managed to post a little link roundup of my recent articles and reviews plus other innerestin’ things, so this isn’t really a little link roundup at all, but a medium-sized roundup, but it should still fit inside a…

Elsewhere!

Regis Toomey, Dick Powell and Richard Erdman in Cry Danger (1951).     I neglect SBBN so often it seems pointless to even apologize anymore, but I promise, a couple of new posts are coming shortly, and finally (finally!) I’ll start on the series-shaped thing I spoke about, probably in the coming weeks. Thanks to…

Elsewhere This Week

Here’s what I’ve been working on this week here at SBBN and elsewhere, as well as nifty bits of things from around the internets. * The Sandpiper (1965) at Spectrum Culture for the Oeuvre series. It’s not the film’s fault that supporting actor Chuck Bronson became a cultural icon a few years after The Sandpiper,…

Elsewhere This Week

A day late and many, many dollars short, here’s this week’s roundup of my articles written elsewhere, and some links you’ll absolutely enjoy, guaranteed, or triple your money back. * Showing Up (2013) at Spectrum Culture: This documentary is literally nothing but talking heads, yet it is fascinating. If you’re interested in the acting process,…

Elsewhere This Week (Updated)

Thank you all for your patience as I gather together some films for a new blog series I’ll be starting soon, as well as a set of Warner Archive MOD DVD reviews, all coming shortly. Meanwhile, please to enjoy some of my articles that have appeared elsewhere around Le Interwebbe, plus a few interesting things…

Elsewhere This Week

The holiday season has been over for many weeks, but the endless, soul-draining, life-sucking winter that will not die has really thrown off my groove. With some luck and a little willpower and copious amounts of caffeine, I hope to be starting up a few new projects, as well as resuming some features I let…

Update: The October Edition

Arbogast on Film may or may not be open for the holidays! We all love Arbo and are glad he returns to us, even if it is only once a year. My husband’s art blog The Fuzzy Skeletonian has launched his 2013 Octoberweenpaloozaganza: Crumple Mania, so stop on by! As always, his blog has gory…

Elsewhere: The Adorable Dogs and Hollywood Butts Edition

Things I’ve written elsewhere, and other stuff around the interwebs lately: My piece on The Human Factor (1979) as an underrated gem is up at Spectrum Culture. This is now available on MOD DVD at Warner Archives, in a print that I absolutely adored, because the grain was kept — all that delicious, nutritious 1970s…
