|The Siren uses a picture of Joan Fontaine in Suspicion on her profile|
Ms. Farran Smith Nehme, the author, recounts how her blog became popular, gives her opinion on what constitutes a classic film (“to be a true classic, you want something that has stood the test of time, that people still watch with pleasure. ”) and recommends some of her favorite gateway movies for those who disclaim any interest in old films ( “…Double Indemnity because it‘s so…witty”).
Java follows the Siren blog, but did not know that Ms. Nehme has done a bit of programming for TCM. That must have been fun. The Siren is also co-hosting a noir, film preservation blogathon in February.
