Robert Mitchum: The Night of the Hunter

I took the week off from contributing to the Scarecrow blog. But a couple of other bits:

We have a new episode of my radio show “The Music and the Movies,” this one the most self-indulgent session yet: It’s devoted to film music involving people named Robert. All I can say is that I was walking along wondering whether Robert Mitchum was the best movie Robert, and it dawned on me that this might be a good theme for a show. You decide, by listening at the Voice of Vashon website (and if that show has slipped away by the time you are reading this, there will be something else there).

There’s no link yet but calendars can be marked for the next installment of Scarecrow Academy, which will be Part 2 of our yearlong “The Art in Sci-Fi: Science Fiction and the Director” series. This free Zoom semester will kick off on Saturday, October 22, at 2 pm Pacific Time, and continue at the same time for eight weeks of sci-fi classics, old and new. Watch this space (and watch the skies).
