Movies I Watched in February

Young and Innocent (1937)

This month wasn't as good as last month... I read We'll Always Have Casablanca by Noah Isenberg. If you are watching Masters of the Air, I highly recommend Harry Crosby's memoir, A Wing and a Prayer. It is on both the Internet Archive and Hoopla (free with your library card) - both e-book and audio book. The Making of Masters of the Air Podcast is really good too.

Least Favorite Film: The Victors was good until about two-thirds of the way through when they killed the dog. It was crummy after that but I had already invested two hours in it so I finished it. I didn't care for Track of the Cat. I don't like movies about dysfunctional families where everybody is angry or hateful or rotten.

Favorite Movie: Not really any clear winners this month. The Lightkeepers was sweet. 

Mitchum with some luscious hair in The Story of G.I. Joe (1945) - not a word I ever thought I'd use lol.
