CineSavant Column

Craig Reardon tops me for Lon Chaney Jr. musical numbers, with a quick YouTubeclip from Josh Max entitled, Lon Chaney Jr. Sings! Now we just need to see Lon dance.

Bruce Dern lives! Douglas Trumbull and his producer Michael Gruskoff will be hosting a special screening of their 45 year-old movie Silent Running in Beverly Hills tomorrow; it should be a great opportunity for effects fans to get up close with their hero. The details are at the Laemmle Theaters page.

And it’s time for me to get to work on ‘Savant’s Best Of 2017’ article — which is going to be rough this year. Expect another wholly idiosyncratic set of titles, for which the appropriate reaction will be, “He liked that movie?”

Thanks for reading! — Glenn Erickson
