Today WIZ celebrates its birth of two years ago (thanks again, Wm Morris) and its continued good health and growth.Â Profound thanks are due its readers and contributors–as Sam says to Captain Faramir, you’ve shown your quality. I think Wilderness Interface Zone’s dream of building the ground story of a meeting place for Mormon and non-Mormon readers and writers of nature literature is being realized and showing boundless prospects for the future.Â Debts of gratitude are due to be paid its supporters.
As part of its modest celebratory events, WIZ will post two Retro Reviews of vintage movies and offer copies of those movies in DVD form as gifts to interested audience members and WIZ contributors who comment on the review posts.Â Each movie fits the Love of Nature, Nature of Love Month and has nature as a key element of its story, either as setting or plot vehicle.
How to get a free movie: Read the Retro Review I post today and/or the one I’ll post Monday, February 28. All readers need do is post a comment at the Retro Review and that will win each unique commenter one free copy of the movie under review. Â I’m hoping that each Retro Review post garners 10 comments by unique commenters, but if they go over that, I think we’ll be able to meet demand.Â If the unanticipated happens and commenters go way over the expected number, I may impose a cut off limit just to keep my sanity intact.
Thanks so much, loyal readers, for following WIZ’s content and posting comments, and deepest thanks to our contributors, who have heartily and with a great show of talent stepped up to provide for WIZ’s success.Â I’m looking forward to this next year, which I anticipate to be exciting and filled with good prospects.
Profoundest thanks, friends.Â This round’s two Retro Reviews will feature the films The Charge at Feather River starring Guy Madison and Helen Westcott and South of Pago Pago starring Francis Farmer and John Hall.Â Today’s Retro Review is The Charge at Feather River.
