    What a great idea! I recently stumbled upon your site and have enjoyed listening to the program. I love many of the films you have already done and I look forward to future selections.

    If I may be so bold as to suggest a movie for a future podcast . . . “Scarlet Street” is what of the best movies available on internet archive with a fantastic plot and unbeatable cast.

    Thanks again. Keep up the great work.

    Thanks so much!

    You may be so bold, as suggestions are always welcome.

    Scarlet Street is indeed a very cool public-domain film, and a few years ago, I had a hand in producing a described version with the company where I learned to do this, AudioVision Canada. To avoid any possible suspicion, I’m not producing any films that I know have been done by AVC, but you’re welcome to check out their vast video store, where they sell Scarlet Street described in various formats here: http://www.audiovisioncanada.com/ACCFMX/stores/2/_P622.cfm

    Rats! I fully understand your reasoning though, and I appreciate you giving the link to their web-site.

    Other great PD movies that I think are worth considering would be Gaslight (the 1940 version British version, of course), Too Late for Tears, Suddenly, Kansas City Confidential, D.O.A, and Woman on the Run. I’m a film noir fan.

    Just friendly suggestions, of course. Once again, I appreciate the fine job you have done and I look forward to hearing your future selections.

    AVC has done all of them except for Woman on the Run and the 1940 Gaslight (so far). So cross your fingers. :-) Fortunately, there’s lots of great noir in the public domain. Thanks again!
