Movies About Movies Blogathon

Goat Dog is hosting a Movies About Movies Blogathon. Blogathon posts are being archived here. What with vacation, the Olympics and the upcoming political circuses I hadn't planned much film-watching, but I'm going to try to watch something in observance of this blogathon. I have 8 1/2 (reviewed for the blogathon by Hugo Stiglitz Makes Movies here) sitting in the stack to be watched as we speak.

He links to a list of suggestions.

From that list these are the ones I've seen:

Behind the Screen (Silent, 1916)
Felix in Hollywood(1923)
45 Minutes from Hollywood (1926)
Man With The Movie Camera (Soviet Union, 1929)
The Masquerader(1914)
Sherlock Jr. (1924)
Singin' in the Rain (1952)
A Star Is Born (1937)
Sunset Boulevard (1950)
