The Thrilling Ivan G. Shreve, Jr.

Among his many favorite films, Ivan G. Shreve, Jr. lists Abbot & Costello Meet Frankenstein, Duck Soup, High Noon, and Murder My Sweet. Even though he failed to mention Monty Python & the Holy Grail and The Adventures of Robin Hood, this is obviously a man of refined taste. His blog Thrilling Days of Yesteryear (now going on 6) is a constant feast of news and commentary devoted to classic films and television, Old Time Radio, comic strips and related nostalgia—in other words, the coolest stuff on earth. Among other special features, you’ll find a handy guide to Classic TV Online, including Have Gun—Will Travel, The Cisco Kid, Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, The Lone Ranger and many others. Thrilling is an understatement. Welcome aboard, Ivan!
