We’re so excited we can hardly sit still.
Our friend Dorian Tenore-Bartilucci (she of the fab blog Tales of the Easily Distracted) has asked us to co-host The Mary Astor Blogathon May 3-10, 2013.
This is a VERY big deal because this year marks Ms. Astor’s 107 birthday, and we’re celebrating with a Blogathon and cake.
You say you’re not a classic film blogger, but still a fan of Ms. Astor’s work? No problem! Come and join us anyway!
We’ll welcome more than one blog on any of Ms. Astor’s films. So if we receive five requests to do The Maltese Falcon, for instance, we’ll accept ’em all. After all, no two people see the same movie in the same way, n’est-ce pas?
Please let us know what movie you’d like to review and which day you’d prefer. Just post your choice in the comment section below, or send yours truly an email at rakerr2(at)telus(dot)net, or email Dorian at dorianb(at)ptd(dot)net. Be sure to take a copy of the banner at the top of this post to add to your website. We’ll be posting regular updates to keep you in the loop.
We hope you can join us! And, if you’d rather not write a blog post, we’ll hope you’ll still have some cake in Ms. Astor’s honour.
