A Couple of Items About William A Wellman

Just to say that I’ve written a new review of William A Wellman’s great pre-Code drama Wild Boys of the Road for Wonders in the Dark, as part of the site’s Greatest Childhood/Adolescent Films Countdown. It’s a film I’ve already written about here in the past, but it was fun to watch and write about it again and there was lots more to say!

Still on the subject of Wellman, who is one of my favourite directors, I was excited to hear that a blogathon is being organised about his work, from September 10 to 13. Now Voyaging is hosting The William Wellman Blogathon, and has had the honour of receiving a comment from Wellman’s son and biographer, William Wellman Jr.  I will be taking part and contributing a piece about his Second World War aviation drama Thunder Birds.
