Eyes in the Night still with Mac and FridayTurner Classic Movies’ The Projected Image: A History of Disability in Film is running each Tuesday evening in October. Of particular interest to Colleen is the 1942 film Eyes in the Night, which follows a blind detective in his thwarting of a group of murderers and thieves.

Colleen and Cheryl discuss the film and its portrayal of blindness, as well as its overall plot. They really enjoyed watching it as a film in itself and appreciated the somewhat realistic portrayal of a person living with blindness. The main character even uses his blindness to outwit the bad guys, who underestimate him and his seeing eye dog. This is a very fun film and Colleen and Cheryl both reccomend it to anyone who enjoys detective dramas and/or old movies.
