It’s almost time for you to put on your reading glasses! In one week, the For the Love of Film (Noir) blogathon starts. From throughout the film blogosphere, writers are banding together for a great cause–to raise funds for film preservation. Every day more bloggers are answering the call to write about and raise funds for film noir. Their efforts are organized by The Self-Styled Siren and Ferdy on Films. I’m participating, and so are the others below.
