Happy Halloween from Yvonne DeCarlo, courtesy of Film Noir Photos. Considering that one of Ms. DeCarlo's most famous roles later in life was Lily Munster in The Munsters, this image from earlier in her career seemed even more appropriate for Halloween.

Streamline recently reviewed the 1939 version of Raffles, the story of an upper class cricket player, A.J. Raffles, whose nighttime persona is "The Amateur Cracksman," a brilliant jewel thief. In the title role, David Niven manages to play cricket, hit all the high society parties, steal jewels, elude the police and give away the loot to those who need help. The 1930 version of the same film starred Ronald Coleman in the same role. I have seen both films, and both are enjoyable.

Well, this is what I get for not paying attention. I just found out that the 2017 Jimmie Lunceford Jamboree Festival is going on right now through October 29. There are events going on every night this week, including art shows, lectures, jam sessions and movies all over town celebrating one of the biggest musical talents to come out of Memphis. Check out the site and see if you can join in the fun.
