Sensible Cinderella: Kitty Foyle (1940) – dreaminginthebalcony

Like Ginger Rogers as Kitty Foyle (1944), I’m just a girl with a typewriter.

On October 15, my first article was published in The Epoch Times, which is the fastest growing independent news media in America. Since then, I have had nine articles published in print as well as online by this publication. However, I only posted links to the first two articles here. I am going to take this opportunity to post a list of my Epoch Times articles so that any of my interested followers from the website can see how the PEPS message is being spread through this influential publication.

“Joker”: No Laughing Matter

October 26, 2019 – In this article, I discussed the fear of violence surround the recently released backstory of the famous Batman nemesis, Joker.

January 12, 2020 – In this article, I analyzed why 1939 was Hollywood’s Golden Era and compared its top films to the top movies from 2019. The two years are similar, since both produced many blockbusters, but the difference is that modern films like Code decency.

The 1954 Academy Awards: New Technology and Old Standards

February 5, 2020 – In honor of the upcoming 92nd Academy Awards, I wrote about a climactic past Oscars ceremony, the 26th Oscars, which honored films from 1953.

Popcorn & Inspiration: “A Letter to Three Wives” from 1949: Remembering Kirk Douglas

February 27, 2020 – In honor of Kirk Douglas’s death in February, I reviewed one of my favorite of his early films, A Letter to Three Wives. This film shows the importance of understanding and patience in marriage and how each relationship is different. It also features a great and unusually sensitive role for Kirk Douglas.

March 14, 2020 – In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I wrote about a film which features Irish character, Irish actors, and Irish faith, Going My Way from 1944. With three types of music, a charming story, and good values, this movie shows the best things about the Irish, mainly their fun and their faith.
