Another day, another legendary classic film at the Ohio Theatre in Columbus, courtesy of the long-running CAPA Summer Movie Series.
There’s nothing quite like watching a silent film in an ornate, old picture-palace, with accompaniment by the world’s best organist playing on the theatre’s original instrument.
You won’t find better silent film audiences anywhere.
The CAPA Summer Movie Series is the longest-running classic film series in the United States and, as far as the powers-that-be know, the world.
We’re blessed to have such an incredible, on-going cultural experience here.
Some more fantastic choices! My posts about Dean Jagger are included in this round-up.

The Reel Infatuation Blogathon is finally here! My actual entry won’t be posted for a day or two, but this piece delves into how the blogathon came into existence.
I’m kind of obsessed with Christmas films. For many people, Thanksgiving marks the start of the decorating or shopping season. I, on the other hand, take it as the sign to begin watching as many holiday flicks as possible. I’d do it around the clock if I could. My husband thinks this is really strange, but he leaves me to it with nary a head shake. He’s a good man.
Sometime in mid-December of last year, after watching both White Christmas (1954) and Miracle on 34th Street (1947) a few too many times, I had a mild personal epiphany.
I realized that my two biggest film character crushes are on these guys:
I’ve been crushing on this holiday duo since my teen years, thus my insight was embarrassingly belated. Once I had this figured out, it was an…

Whee! The Dorothy Lamour (“Dot”) Blogathon runs this weekend, March 11-13
We, along with our co-host Front and Frock, can hardly wait to celebrate this talented actress and singer.
We’ll upload a recap of the day’s posts each evening of the blogathon. If you post later in the evening – no worries! We’ll include you in the next day’s recap.
For the full list of participants, click HERE.
See you at the Dorothy Lamour party this weekend!
If it’s not on your schedule yet, it should be!
I’m co-hosting this wonderful blogathon with Ruth of Silver Screenings! Let’s get the party started.
We are so excited to announce the Dorothy Lamour Blogathon!
Wouldn’t you agree it’s time we celebrated this talented woman? Dorothy was much more than the sarong she became famous for – she was a singer, an actor, a mother and a dynamic fundraiser of American WWII war bonds.
For the blogathon, you can write on any movie or subject associated with Ms Dorothy, including her film, theatre or television appearances. Duplicate topics are A-OK.
A list of Ms Dorothy’s movies can be found HERE.
You can sign up using the form below, which was designed by our smarty-pants friend Kristina at Speakeasy.
Please help yourself one the banners below to help us promote the event.
We hope to see you in March!
Here’s the roster so far. (You…
