- Backlots is devoted to honoring and celebrating all aspects of classic film and is written by Lara Gabrielle Fowler, a California-based classic film writer and historian. Lara is currently working on a full-length biography of Marion Davies, the first since 1972. Please visit my book's website at laragfowler.com to learn more about that.
- Here you will find pieces on frequently seen classics and some lesser-known gems, as well as book reviews, festival coverage, and pieces on the history, theory and culture of film as it relates to the study of classic cinema. Enjoy the site, and thanks for reading!
- If you would like to contact the author, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will get back to you shortly.
Backlots is a labor of love, and bringing this kind of content to our readers does incur costs–the yearly price of the domain, travel for all the events we cover, and everything else that is necessary to bring you the best of classic film on the web. Ad revenue brings in a meager amount, but doesn’t begin to cover the costs associated with a site like this. If you like what you see and have a few extra cents to spare, any amount, no matter how small, helps immensely and is deeply appreciated.
