We’re in the CMBA!!

I just got an email informing me that Backlots has been accepted into the Classic Movie Blog Association!! I am told that it was one of only two blogs to be accepted this round. Thank you, dear readers, for your loyalty, and for your wonderful comments and contributions that make this blog what it is. I really appreciate all of you and your insight, and thanks for reading!


Many thanks,
