Film Friday Weekly Roundup – TGIF Edition
Well now it’s Friday and it seems like it’s a long time comin’ this week. As a matter of fact, when I woke up this morning I thought it was Saturday – and I immediately felt sad because I had somehow missed Friday. So as cliche as it sounds, TGIF. Now, I`ve got to get to cracking since we keep summer hours on Fridays here at PCF HQ and there’s much weekend movie watching to plan. But first, here’s your Film Friday Weekly Roundup – the best of the best in classic movie news and meditations from the interwebs. Happy reading and happy viewing!
