For a while I would note when various items posted over at bleedingfool.com, but I got out of the habit because they were becoming fairly common.
However, I'm making an exception because I've been invited to participate in a new features called Toxic Masculinity Tuesday. The tongue-in-cheek title is a reference to the unabashed macho character of the films under discussion, and through a series of remarkable coincidences, I ended up penning this week's offering.
For those unwilling to take the click bait, I chose the 1991 Disney Beauty and the Beast, because it features multiple men who demonstrate strongly masculine traits, and these are taken as a matter of course. Gaston is of course a bit over the top, but of all the Disney villains, he's probably the most liked by other people in the film. He's actually a popular guy, he just takes things too far.
I intend to do deep dives in my entry, focusing on film noir and Golden Age movies.
Anyhow, it keeps me engaged in the absence of a new book project.
