One of Ours...on Turner Classic Movies
Moira Neylon, aka/moirafinnie, blogger on TCM's Movie Morlocks site and member of the Classic Movie Blog Association, will be a guest programmer on Turner Classic Movies next month. Moira and three other Morlocks will be featured in segments with host Robert Osborne on Friday, November 30; each will discuss a film they've chosen to be screened that evening.
I was delighted to discover (thanks to the new issue of TCM's "Now Playing") that Moira selected the classic Jacques Becker crime drama, Touchez Pas Au Grisbi (1954), starring the incomparable Jean Gabin in what has been called his "comeback" performance. It is one of his best. The film also features a young Jeanne Moreau.
Keep an eye out for Moira on TCM in November and, if you haven't already, check out her work at Movie Morlocks and on her blog, The Skeins. On Twitter, she's @moirathefinn. She's also active at The Silver Screen Oasis.
