Cracked Rear Viewer Gets Interviewed by John Greco on CMBA

2019 is shaping up to be an interesting year. A short time ago, I was contacted by John Greco, board member of the Classic Movie Blog Association, which I joined a little under a year ago (John’s own blog, Twenty Four Frames , is well worth seeking out!). The interview is now available on the CMBA website, and it’s an honor to be singled out and share my thoughts on classic film and my humble little site. The interview can be read at this link:

Cracked Rear Viewer is Now a Proud Member of CMBA

I’ve been accepted into The Classic Movie Blog Association, “a group of blogs dedicated to the celebration of classic cinema”, made up of film bloggers from around the Internet committed to keeping the memories of these great films alive, including many here on WordPress. I’m humbled at the honor, thank those who voted me in, and will do my best to uphold the standards of this fine organization of like-minded movie fans. Blog on!

Another Milestone!

I received a pleasant surprise this morning while doing my daily stats check… Cracked Rear Viewer has reached the magic number of 500 WordPress followers! Add that to the readers on social media (Facebook, Twitter) and via e-mail, and this two and a half year old blog is now 1,467 strong. I thank you all for your support, and will strive to continue bringing you my “fresh takes” on classic movies and retro pop culture. Onward and upward!

To be clear: FilmStruck is not a standalone streaming version of Turner Classic Movies. But what it is (or will be when it launches this fall) is potentially something even better – a unique programming alternative to the linear TV channel with the same expert curation that’s made TCM beloved by fans for more than two decades.
