William Wyler Blog-a-Thon: The Good Fairy

Goatdog, of whom I was a huge fan for years before I was a neighbor and a friend, is hosting a William Wyler Blog-a-Thon this weekend. Whether it was the announcement itself that inspired me or the completely hysterical and brilliant graphics, what began as a blog post about Wyler's The Good Fairy—a 1935 film I'd never even heard of that predates and completely differs from all of his big Hollywood hits, including Wuthering Heights, The Best Years of Our Lives, and Ben-Hur—turned into my first full review since God (or at least William Wyler) was a boy. Maybe one day I'll manage to churn out one of these that isn't about a movie that's already 72 years old... but I hope you enjoy this one, and though I didn't love the film, I did find it enormously interesting and well worth the rental. (It also goes without saying that the whole blog-a-thon is a real feast.)

For review purposes I finally put myself through the rest of Across The Universe today also, as well as, heaven help me, Hot Rod and The Brave One. I need a good week to recover from such a hideous onslaught...
