We’re excited (and a little sad) to present today’s Big Finish for the Miriam Hopkins Blogathon. We’ve had so much fun that we’re a little sorry to see it end.
The most impressive aspects of this blogathon are the passion and admiration people have for Miriam’s work. Clearly, her films are still relevant to modern audiences.
Today’s posts are a reflection of that passion. They could almost be regarded as love letters to Miriam and the films she made.
Thanks to everyone who researched, wrote, read, and commented on posts as part of this blogathon. You’ve helped celebrate the career of a remarkable actress, and helped launch a fab new site, Font and Frock, with our friend and fellow book/movie lover, Maedez, of A Small Press Life.
Here are the final tributes:
