For the Love of Film...Noir

Restoring a film isn't cheap
So dig in your pockets--and deep
Committing a crime
is the hit-man called Time,
and noir films could take the big sleep

Starting tomorrow, Limerwrecks will be one of many blogs taking part in For the Love of Film, a week long event held to raise funds for film preservation. This annual 'blogathon' is hosted by Ferdy on Films and the Self-Styled Siren. The worthy recipient this year is the Film Noir Foundation, which is currently working to restore a terrific film noir, Try and Get Me. Please consider helping in any way you can. Just go to the Film Noir Foundation donation page by clicking here. Thanks!

UPDATE: As of 3/9/11, the blogathon donation page is still open for business!

You can read the Siren's interview with the Film Noir Foundation's Eddie Muller on the subject of film preservation, here. And there's more info on For the Love of Film (Noir) at Ferdy on Films, here.
