CMBA Spring Blogathon

The CMBA Spring Blogathon is a wrap and the lineup of members who participated this time around was outstanding.

This year we took a look at the world of Femmes and Hommes Fatale of Film Noir. Attractive, seductive and deadly-dangerous women and men who bring disastrous consequences to the hapless saps with whom they come into contact, especially those they...seduce. Think Jane Greer in Out of the Past, Alain Delon in Purple Noon or Gloria Grahame in just about anything.
