Happy Eclipse Day!

Stay safe everyone!

Best movie eclipse scenes? Well, “Twilight: Eclipse,” of course, but also “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court,” based on Mark Twain’s novel. There have been many versions, but I like the musical with Bing Crosby.

Best of all is the film from the great innovator of special effects and movie magic, George Melies, best remembered for another moon movie, “The Trip to the Moon,” (and for “Hugo”). This one is “The Eclipse: Courtship of the Sun and Moon.”
