Just a note to let all you Gentle Readers know that I have formally re-branded this site BUDD WILKINS AT THE SHOW for a number of reasons. First of all, I think it better encapsulates my present and future preoccupations with not only film and film culture, but our entire Society of the Spectacle. It also doesn’t hurt that it’s actually the title of a 1898 poem by one Samuel Ellsworth Kiser. So, I like to think the idea that I’m out here, taking it all in, has been out there in the artistic ether for well over a hundred years now.
I’ll also be dropping a few new entries in the “Golden Year” series, updated, of course, to embrace the 50th anniversary of A.D. 1969. Look for those forthcoming!
