Gloria Grahame night

August 13, 2009


It’s Gloria Grahame night tonight on Turner Classic Movies. This poster is one of many superb updated posters TCM has produced for their Summer Under the Stars series. You can see them all here. I bow to few in my love of Gloria Grahame, whom I first became infatuated with after reading the tragic memoir written by her much younger British lover Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool.

Apologies to anyone keeping track (thanks Paul) for the poor state of disuse this site has fallen into over the past two months. Mostly I’ve been writing Movie Poster of the Week over at The Auteurs, and writing nonsense (and linking to less nonsensical things) on Twitter instead of T.W.I.T.T.. But I will try to keep house around The Wind in the Trees from now on.
