We’ll be co-hosting The Madeleine Carroll Blogathon with our friend, Dorian, of Tales of the Easily Distracted. Hooray!

The beautiful and talented Madeleine, as you know, was once the highest-paid actress in the world. She starred in such films as The Thirty-Nine Steps, Lloyds of London and My Favorite Blonde.

The blogathon will run February 26-27, 2015, and we’d love for you help us celebrate her career – and her birthday (Feb. 26) – in style!

You can read all the details on Dorian’s site HERE.

      • Aw, thanks, Ruth! I’m as you guys and gals are about our gal Madeleine Carroll Madeleine Carroll!! She’s been a fave in our family for years, so we’re especially thrilled to give her the accolades that this talented and beautiful actress deserves, and in time for her birthday, too! We’re so delighted that you and I have joined for forces to get Madeleine Carroll awareness among movie lovers! 😀

  1. And yes, I too think that photo of Madeleine is truly ravishingly beautiful in that photo; so glad you included it here, Ruth, you clever gal! No wonder it’s claimed that blondes have more fun 😀

  2. Timely blogathon as I was recently gifted several Carroll DVDs that I can’t WAIT to watch… but I think I might be unoriginal (!) and take The 39 Steps if it’s still available as I have been wanting to write about that for a while!


    • Ooh – that IS fortuitous! And I’m so glad you want to help celebrate Madeleine’s Birthday!

      The 39 Steps is all yours. Such a good film! You should know that I have chosen it, too, but I hope that won’t dissuade you from reviewing it. I think our reviews would make a good tag-team approach to this film, no?

      Dorian will be posting the participants on her site in a few weeks, but in the meantime I’m so glad you’re joining us. 🙂


  3. Great idea for a blogathon. Would it be OK if I join in and review ‘Fascination’, a little-known British drama from 1931 which is being released on DVD in the UK in mid-January?

    I’ve recently started up a new blog, British Film Classics ( ) which will be focusing on older British films, though there is very little content there as yet, so this would be an ideal topic for me there – plus I will reblog it on my Movie Classics blog! Hope that is OK with you!


  4. Victoria, you’re a lucky gal to have a collection of our gal Madeleine Carroll’s films! We’re looking forward to seeing what you’ll blog about our birthday girl! 😀


  5. […] James Wong Howe was nominated 10 times for an Academy Award in cinematography. He won twice for The Rose Tattoo (1955) and Hud (1963). The other nominated films are Algiers (1938), Abe Lincoln in Illinois (1940), King’s Row (1942), The North Star (1943), Air Force (1943), The Old Man and the Sea (1958), Seconds (1966) and Funny Lady (1975). Other notable pictures include The Thin Man (1934), Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942), Come Back Little Sheba (1952), Sweet Smell of Success (1957), and my favorite of his, The Prisoner of Zenda (1937), starring my favorite film blonde, Madeleine Carroll. […]


  6. Ugh. I am so sorry. I was on vacation last week and then got snowed in an off the grid for several days. I’m afraid I blew it. My apologies! I’ll still post about the Fan, but very late.


Start Singin', Mac!
