What’s Happening the Next Three Weeks

No movie review today.  I’m taking a short break for Christmas.  I will then have a set of three special posts the week after.  I will talk about the movies I had been looking for (all of which I now have), then I will do my December status, then I will do a 2013 in review post.  Last year I combined the December and Year End posts in one and it was too unwieldy.

The first week of 2014 I will finish my current set of posts on Gloria Grahame films I would recommend.  After that I may have some news.  We’ll see.

I’ll leave you with this clip from the most recent Saturday Night Live.  The audio isn’t very good because this is a user-uploaded clip, not an official video from SNL.  They uploaded pretty much ever other skit from that show, but not the only one that was worth watching.

  1. Wishing you a Happy Christmas! To me, that clip has a kind of Frank Sinatra vibe, I could imagine Ol' Blue Eyes singing it.

    1. It's originally from the 1949 film Neptune's Daughter, starring Esther Williams. She and Ricardo Montalban sing it to each other, followed by a comic repeat of it by Red Skelton and Betty Garrett. It won the Oscar for Best Original Song. You can see the clip here:

  2. Interested to hear the news. I'm guardedly hopeful that it'll be something good.

    1. Thanks. At the very least I'll have lots more chocolate than I do now, so that's a good thing.
