Saturday Art: The Greatest Year in Movies 75 Years Later

I’m taking a break today from my series on personally Influential Authors to talk about movies. Specifically, movies from 1939, a year that I (and many film critics) consider the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time.)

I’m taking a break today from my series on personally Influential Authors to talk about movies. Specifically, movies from 1939, a year that I (and many film critics) consider the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time.) This is not a unanimous choice as a couple of links will show. Nevertheless, if

I was living in Rome, NY when I first read Oh Kentucky!. It was an easy decision to pick up the book when I saw the title and read the blurb on the cover. I have always been proud of Kentucky and was quite intrigued to read a tale set in the early days of settlement. I think the only disappointment I had in the book was there was no mention of my six great grandmother, (Elizabeth Boone Grant was Daniel Boone’s younger sister) who was one of the women of Bryan Station just north of Lexington and was the site of a siege by Indians during the Revolutionary War.

There are now 26 novels in the Midnight Louie series. I have not come close to reading them all. In fact, I have only read the first eight or so starting with Catnap through Cat in a Golden Garland. I have also read a number of mystery anthologies that have included Midnight Louie short stories including Cat Crimes II, Cat Crimes for the Holidays, and Cat Crimes Through Time.
