CMBA and ClassicFlix

It has been an exciting few weeks for The Blonde at the Film!

First, the Classic Movie Blog Association held its annual awards and History Through Hollywood: or, What I Learned from Classic Movies won for Best Classic Movie Series!CMBA-BADGE -Series

I’m thrilled and honored, especially because the CMBA is such an outstanding group of classic movie bloggers. It was wonderful to read all the nominations and revisit the year’s incredible collection of writing! I was reminded yet again of what a talented group this is. Congratulations to the other winners!

You can find out more about the awards here. And congratulations again to all the nominees and winners!

Second, I’m delighted to announce that I will be writing the monthly Colorama column on! I was thrilled to be asked, and I am excited to contribute to such a wonderful site.

If you haven’t checked out ClassicFlix, definitely head over there. It’s a Netflix-type subscription service but only with classic movies, so it’s a dream for a movie buff! Much of their inventory is difficult to find anywhere else, so I am looking forward to watching hard-to-find films as well as old favorites! You can read my first article on the color design in Thrill of a Romance (1945) on ClassicFlix now—of course I chose an Esther Williams film!

I love writing The Blonde at the Film, and it’s just an added bonus when my work is recognized. Thank you to my fellow bloggers at the CMBA and to ClassicFlix!  And thank you, as always, for reading!
