Watch THE CAT AND THE CANARY right here on Dereliction Row!

I've signed up to be part of Fandor's syndication program, which means I can embed Fandor movies right here on my blog. You can rent the film and watch it on my blog or sign up for a Fandor membership and have access to not only the films I embed on my blog but any film on the Fandor website!

THE CAT AND THE CANARY (1927) is a silent horror film from director Paul Leni -- one of the many German Expressionist directors who moved over to Hollywood and brought his original visual style to the States. CANARY is one of Leni's American movies, an "old dark house" film that's part comedy, part horror. It stars Laura La Plante and Forrest Stanley.

Seriously, this is an amazing resource for film lovers and I'm just happy to be along for the ride. Yeah, I kinda think they're crazy to let a reprobate like me in the door, but the folks at Fandor have asked me to contribute articles. I've got two articles posted to the site already.

Fandor is also on Facebook, so go fan it! My first article (about Tarkovsky's THE MIRROR) can be found HERE.

My second article, a piece on Josef Von Sternberg's THE BLUE ANGEL starring Marlene Dietrich, has just been posted to Fandor's new blog, Keyframe. You can access Keyframe even if you don't have a subscription to Fandor, so check that out too!
