  3. Hi there,

    I just discovered your site courtesy "1001 Movies You..." and I must say that I am really impressed by your passion for cinema. I would love to join CMBA... would also like to contribute an article on John Huston's The Maltese Falcon, if permitted. Please do let me how can I be a part of CMBA and the blogathon.

  7. I must congratulate you all for a most daunting task...

    #1. trying to breathe new life into old chestnuts like Casablanca and Citizen Kane....and..

    #2. reviewing and praising some marginal films like "Too Late for Tears" and "Sentimental Journey"

  8. Great job, everyone! This was a lot of fun. I love when the CMBA gets together and this event had quite the turnout.

  9. This is massively, horribly, not even on time...late. But, toddlers do not like schedules, deadlines...

    My sincerest apologies.
