So, every once in a while, I check my blog stats. I think it’s important to keep up with your audience as that is a good way of knowing where to go next and how to outline your articles. Your fans are loyal for a reason and I like to give back as much as possible. And the other day, as my new series of posts debuted, I was curious to know what the most popular article in each of my previous series was – just for fun. So… what were they?
DOUBLE BILL: 5th – Woman in the Window (1944) and Scarlet Street (1945) – This is a Fritz Lang, Edward G. Robinson, Joan Bennet and Dan Dureya double bill that is somewhere in the cult bracket of the film noir canon. One of my favorite Double Bills to write.
COMEDY GOLD: 6th – The maracas scene from Some Like It Hot (1959) – I am not surprised at all by this, as Some Like It Hot is clearly the funniest film ever made. Nuff said.
SCREENPLAY BY: Garson Kanin and Ruth Gordon – From A Double Life (1947) to Adam’s Rib (1949), these two were responsible for some of Hollywood’s greatest screenplays. Everyone loves a power couple!
FAVORITE ANGRY MAN: 12th (Juror 2) – Interestingly, Juror 2 has it! It’s most likely the first one that comes up in Google searches, due to algorithms, but I think it’s sweet that the most demure of the 12 Angry Men gets the attention he deserves.
WORLD CINEMA: Purple Noon (1960) – The first film adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s The Talented Mr Ripley is the most-read WORLD CINEMA post and again, I’m not surprised. Alain Delon’s ever-enduring popularity comes through here and rightly so.
I will be updating this list in the future to include the most popular ONE MOVIE, THREE QUOTES article. I wonder what it will be?
