Slight Break in the Action

Hopefully this won't disrupt traffic to the post below for #35 in the countdown, Otto Preminger's Where the Sidewalk Ends,
so keep the comments coming there. But...

Due to the fact that I’m going to be out of town for a few days, I am going to take a few days off from the countdown so that I can be back and settled before things continue. I knew for some time that I would be gone Thursday through Sunday and originally intended to set up each day’s entry to auto-post so that the daily pace could be continued. But the more that I thought about it, the more that I realized that most of the fun for me comes from being able to see the comments that are being made and to converse with everyone that is reading. Since I will be gone and not have as much computer access as usual, this would be almost impossible – which defeats the entire purpose as far as I’m concerned.

So Thursday-Sunday will be off days, with the daily schedule being resumed on Monday March 22. Hopefully everyone is cool with this – at the very least it will give everyone some time to catch up on any new noirs that I have highlighted or to try and guess how the rest of the rankings will unfold! Again, I hesitated to do this, but I want to be around when the reviews are up and being discussed, and that just won’t be possible while I’m gone. I think this will work best.


  1. Dave, enjoy the break, you deserve it!

  2. Thanks, Sam! Your devotion to this countdown and the blog in general has been amazing ever since I started. Much appreciated!

  3. You deserve a break, Dave, and I might even exploit it to watch more noirs so I don't feel so much like a fool when another one comes up that I haven't seen. Take it easy until next time.

  4. Thanks Samuel, you're another huge reason why the blog remains interesting... happy noir hunting! :)

  5. I have been enjoying your countdown immensely!! Enjoy the break and I look forward to your return!

    Best regards,

  6. I wonder if you have more info about the auto-post option.
