New Bava Links
CINCINNATI POST columnist Jan Perry is one of Donna's and my dearest local friends. A couple of months ago, she actually appeared on our doorstep to roll up her sleeves and assist with the packing and shipping of the Bava book! More recently, Jan interested the paper in featuring a story on us and the Bava book, to which end she came over a few weeks ago to interview us. We saw her again on Halloween, at which time she was still in the dark about when her story was going to run... but she found out the following day that it actually ran last Monday, October 29! So here's a belated link to THE POST's pre-Halloween coverage of a a certain Cincinnati couple who made good. Thank you, Jan!
Also, Anchor Bay's new MARIO BAVA COLLECTION VOLUME 2 and ERIK THE CONQUEROR are beginning to be reviewed online. Here are links I've found to reviews of the COLLECTION and ERIK by one of my favorite cyber-critics, DVD Savant Glenn Erickson.
Yesterday, Donna spent the entire day designing a full-page color advertisement for MARIO BAVA ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK that will appear in the next issue of Don Shay's respected special effects magazine CINEFEX. The end result is absolutely dazzling -- the most striking book ad I've ever seen, which I suppose is only appropriate.
