Abel Gance's 'NAPOLEON' in London, November 30th [Sep. 20th, 2013|08:44 pm]
[Tags|, , , , ]

Kevin Brownlow's restored version of Abel Gance's 'NAPOLEON' will be screened at the Royal Festival Hall on November 30th, 2013. Music will be conducted by Carl Davis with the Philharmonia Orchestra.

This event follows a successful four day event in Oakland, California in 2012. With the London event coming in November, I have started a series of posts about Abel Gance, Kevin Brownlow and the film. You can follow this link to Edna Purviance's home page for the link to the series.

A few tickets are still available, but going fast. This is a very rare event, so reserve your seats, while you can.

Garen Ewing 'Table Chat' Interview January 2013 [Feb. 6th, 2013|12:43 am]

Very sorry, again, for the lack of updates here. I have been very business with other things, as well as working on the draft for Edna Purviance's family bio. I have about half written at this time.

MEANWHILE.. I am very excited to have had the chance to continue my interview with comic book creator, Garen Ewing

Garen completed his Rainbow Orchid story in 2012. This conversation covers what happened after his book released from Egmont UK. This includes promotion of the book, creating comic workshops for children, the experience at major book festivals, foreign editions of the Rainbow Orchid, and much more!

The interview is 1 hour and 9 minutes. So grab a cup of tea!

I hope you will enjoy as much as I did in catching up on the world of Rainbow Orchid and Julius Chancer.

Special thanks to Garen Ewing, for sharing his valuable time with us. LINK TO INTERVIEW

Time for a refresh with some of the latest posts on Edna's site:

A re-visit of Charlie Chaplin's 'The Kid' from a 1950s British reissue from Reel Classic DVD. LINK

A photo tour featuring 'Charlie Chaplin' in London by Benjamin Robinson. LINK

Update of coming silent and classic film events coming this summer and fall. LINK

The winners of this year's 2011 Youth Silent Film Festival in Portland, Oregon. LINK

And a current favorite, The Adventure Films Podcast (delightful chat with Garen Ewing and his brother Murray, talking about 10 of Garen's favorite adventure films - each show, about one hour long.) LINK

Plus news on The Sea Gull, it would be a good idea to get your orders in, if you haven't gotten one, for the book will be going up in price, due to extra mailing and packaging cost. LINK

Meanwhile, watch Edna's home site for the latest: LINK

Leonard Maltin reviews "The Sea Gull" [Aug. 10th, 2010|04:41 pm]
Well-known, USA film critic and reviewer, Leonard Maltin, reviews "The Sea Gull" by Linda Wada, along with Donna Hill's "Rudolph Valentino The Silent Idol" and Thomas Gladysz's "The Diary of a Lost Girl" about Louise Brooks. More>

"I sometimes decry the decline of professionalism in various disciplines—including publishing—but I can’t think of a better argument for breaking down the barriers of traditional publishing than these three exceptional books, which I doubt any commercial house would have taken on. They may be labors of love but they also convey a commitment to both scholarship and the esthetics of the printed page." - Leonard Maltin, film critic, Crazy Movies
