  1. I had so much fun last year (Gilbert, The Lady Vanishes) and thought I couldn’t come up with something for another round of reel infatuation. And then it hit me! I haven’t been a Charlie Chan fan all these years for the great detective’s deductive reasoning alone. That handsome number one son of his has something to do with it. Keye Luke as Lee Chan is my guy this year.

  3. Hi, there! I was thinking about how I’m often a contrarian when it comes to which male lead you’re supposed to become infatuated with. I’d like to write about how I became far more infatuated with Robert Mitchum’s character in Ryan’s Daughter than the heroine did!

  4. Quick question. I just saw Bette Davis in an episode of Perry Mason I’ve never seen before. She was amazing. I Could I change mine to Bette Davis for the defense? 🙂

  5. Hi! My blog is Words Seem out of Place and I write a lot about film in general, and my favorite performances in particular. I’d love to contribute to your blogathon! I’d write about Angela de Marco (Michelle Pfeiffer) from Married to the Mob, if that works for you. I’ll do my best to get the piece done by June 8-10!

    Here’s my blog, if you’re interested:
