New Feature: Retro Reel Gallery: Black Narcissus 1947

(note: I accidentally posted this a couple of times before it was ready)

Hey Kids, I’ve been meaning to do this for months; ever since I started writing reviews for classic movies on the great blog Basket of Kisses.  I’ll be posting galleries of stills I’ve collected from the movies I’ve reviewed.  I’m starting with the first movie review I wrote, Black Narcissus from 1947.   You can read my review here.   This picture had gorgeous and moody cinematography as you can see in this opening still;  The Mother Superior waits by a window in a scene reminiscent of a Vermeer:

And here is a slide show to whet your appetite, if you’re new to old movies, this is a great place to start!

Next Time: “Where The Boys Are”

New Category –Retro Reel Gallery!

Hi Kids!

As some of you may have seen , I also write old movie reviews for the Basket of Kisses blog in a series titles Retro Reel Review.  These are posted there every weekend (see the most recent here) and as part of my reviews I always post screencaps from that weeks movie.  Of course, I almost always find too many delectable screencaps to use in my articles, so I’m now posting these here, as a ‘sister’ column.   You will find all the latest screen caps in this new catetory, enjoy! -Therese
