The Beach Party Blogathon!

beach-party-flipperFor those of us too fixated on the world of film to venture out into the sun and sand, Ruth of Silver Screenings and Kristina of Speakeasy are bringing the seaside frolics to us with the Beach Party Blogathon!  The rules are off with this one as long as the choice of film involves the beach or the seaside, so head over and sign up.

Here at MMC!, we’ll be bringing some French misfortune to the Blogathon with Yves Allégret’s beautifully dreary Such a Pretty Little Beach (1949).  With its off-season showers and its noir-ish despondency, Such a Pretty Little Beach is a decade-late classic in poetic realism sure to move even the most frivolous of surfer dudes and beach blanket babes.

Thanks once again to the Beach Party Blogathon‘s organizers for letting us participate and we’ll see you in the second week of June for some fun in the sun pain in the rain.

    Thanks for the heads up. Hulot’s Holiday would be perfect for this.

      Good choice. My mind first went to Knife in the Water for a Criterion title.
