Day Two: Miriam Hopkins Blogathon

We’re going to brag.

Today is Day 2 of the Miriam Hopkins Blogathon, and the contributions are just as stellar as the ones we boasted about yesterday.

Today’s posts provide background and context for Miriam’s career; they give us a greater appreciation for her contributions to Hollywood film history.

This blogathon is celebrating the talent of a remarkable actress, and launching the new site, Font and Frock, with our friend and fellow book/movie lover, Maedez, who also curates A Small Press Life.

Here are today’s marvelous posts:
