What's up at Ravens March.

Vintage pens-Handmade books-Silly statements

Hallowe’en Apples!

Posted by Dirck on 30 October, 2015

Well, the happy weekend is upon us.  I’ve left a foolish little treat over on my fictional facade to mark the occasion, and for the traditional Friday Film Fiesta, how about Frankenstein?  This is the earliest extant version, the one offered by the Edison Company, and I take a particular delight in presenting it thus, because dear old T.A. Edison was a staunch opponent of movies that weren’t locked inside a peepshow box– how, he raged, could you be sure everyone in the theatre had coughed up a nickel?  Someone might sneak in and gander without paying!  So, with all our nickels reclining idly in our pockets, on with the show, accompanied by the sound of moaning and grave-spinning from the direction of Llewelyn Park, New Jersey:

If you’ve got some time to spare, there’s also this: Dante’s Inferno in glorious moving pictures.  I happened upon it yesterday, and it’s just too seasonal to not present today.  Be warned, there’s also a surprising amount of nudity for a film predating The Great War.

Today’s pen: Parker 75 (helps keep werewolves at arm’s length)
Today’s ink: Herbin Bleu Nuit (insert line from Dracula here regarding children and music)
