Classic Links: TCM Classic Film Festival 2014 Edition


This week's very special edition of Classic Links is all about the TCM Classic Film Festival 2014. Many fine bloggers were given media credentials this year and their posts have more than justified the honor of being able to report on this transformative event. I've divided most of the links into days, so that you can get a well-rounded perspective on what happened each day:

Thanks Laura! I think I'm missing all of this now much more that I did when I first got home. Maybe it's because spring break is almost over and it's now truly time to get back to normal? I can't thank you enough for getting me in the swing of things my first full day in Hollywood. It still blows my mind that we talked almost the entire day! It was such a great day, and just the start of even more fun. We are so lucky!
