A celebration of the best scenes in the history of cinema

SINCE I HAVE NOT POSTED ANYTHING ON THIS BLOG IN OVER TWO YEARS, I THINK IT'S TIME TO RETIRE THE SECOND INCARNATION OF "THE COBWEBBED ALCOVE".
Long-time frequenters of this blog may recall that "THE COBWEBBED ALCOVE" 1.0 consisted of me choosing a film director or star and providing a short bio and a list of all their films which I had in my "vault". That version of this blog lasted a couple years until I felt that it had run its course and I then revamped this blog, with the inspiration of David Thomson, into "THE COBWEBBED ALCOVE" 2.0 which, until yesterday, featured videos of my favourite scenes from favourite films. Of course, being at the mercy of youtube, videos often disappeared as they were taken down quite routinely; the result being that many videos were defunct. Now, this is no way to run a blog -- and that's probably why I hadn't posted a new video in 2 years! So now the videos are gone and it's time to once again think about revamping this blog. But as what? I don't know yet. Needless to say, if you have any ideas I would welcome them in the comment section. So until I come up with a new incarnation of "THE COBWEBBED ALCOVE" 3.0, I remain obediently yours. . . Watch this space!
