This month’s selection for the Silver Screen Supper Club Dinner and a Movie is the wonderful Rebecca (1940)

and we had a super fun watch-party last Sunday. Folks joined us here in the UK from Canada and the USA to chat about Mrs Danvers giving our heroine the side-eye and Rebecca having her knickers made by nuns. It was a hoot.  To join in with the fun, skip over here to sign up

Everyone is welcome!

Joan’s recipe for Chicken Fontaine is so good I’m sharing it here too.

Here’s how mine turned out – delicious!

Thanks, Joan. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

I’m writing this in haste as I’m off to Scotland for the fabulous HippFest Silent Cinema Festival this week, and I have a lot to organise. On Friday, I’ll be giving a talk entitled How to be a Flapper, featuring clips from a 1920s collection of films made specifically for the female audience.

They are so much fun.  If you can’t make it to Bo’Ness you can watch it on a live stream – imagine – my knees will be knocking!  Here’s a link for more info.

Tickets are £5.30, and the stream will be available to view for 48 hours, so if noon Friday isn’t convenient, you can watch it at your leisure over the weekend with bonbons.

On Saturday night, I’ll introduce a screening of Our Dancing Daughters, which features Joan Crawford in the leading role.

Then, on Sunday, I’ll be hosting a Cooking With Joan Crawford cocktails and canapés workshop. Tickets are still available!\

I am beyond excited because it is such a wonderful festival. The last time we went, Mr Rathbone said, “HippFest is everything I like about the world,” and I absolutely agree! I will report back. This will be my view from the stage – EEK!
