The Lady Eve’s ReelLife devotes January 2012 to “A Month of Vertigo.” 11 bloggers--10 guest contributors and the Lady herself--will blog on Alfred Hitchcock’s mysterious masterpiece throughout the first month of 2012. A slew of CMBA members will participate in The Lady Eve’s first real (reel?) blog event: John Greco of TwentyFour Frames, Whistlingypsy of Distant Voices, Flickering Shadows, Christian Esquevin of Silver Screen Modiste, Brandie Ashe of True Classics, Classicfilmboy of Classicfilmboy’s Movie Paradise, Allen Hefner of Bit Part Actors and R.D. Finch of The Movie Projector. They’ll be joined by Steven DeRosa, author of WritingWith Hitchcock, Michael Nazarewycz of (aka ScribeHard on Twitter) and Brandon K.
