2017 Centennials

I had so much fun last year celebrating the centennials of important people to film, a project that led to my fifth book, A Hundred in 2016, that I knew I had to continue in 2017.

So, here's my Centennials 2017 project.

Each review here is posted on what would have been (or in some instances actually is) the one hundredth birthday of someone important to the film industry. It aims to remember them with an interesting film from their career that, in the process, allows me to explore another aspect of history, whether to cinema or something wider.

Some of these people are famous, household names that we grew up watching. Some aren't. And some used to be, but a hundred years is a long time and things change. All, however, are important.

These films will vary by era, genre and nationality and, together, help to enrich my knowledge and maybe yours too. I'll collate these reviews into a new book, A Hundred in 2017, to be released at the beginning of 2018.
