I recently read the fantastic biography of William Wellman and found myself so inspired by the life and films of this great American director that I decided to do something about it! More to the point, I decided to host my very first blogathon!
Announcing The William Wellman Blogathon!
Love WINGS? Does WESTWARD THE WOMEN get your heart beating? Want to talk about THE OX-BOW INCIDENT? Think that Gary Cooper owes quite a bit to William Wellman and want to share your thoughts? Go for it! You can write about anything and everything related to William Wellman, his life, his films, and his career.
Now for the nitty gritty! This event will run from September 10-13, 2015. I am not assigning days for posts so feel free to post any time during the event. Duplicates are fine so pick any topic you like! Also, this is my first time hosting a blogathon and I am going solo so please let me know if I have forgotten anything or if you have any questions. When the event goes live please be sure so send me a link to your posting either through email, twitter, or posting a comment to the event post on this blog. I want to make sure you get all the credit you deserve!
So now you are itching for the chance to join in the fun! How do I sign up, you may be asking. Why it is very simple! Just leave me a comment below letting me know your topic of choice and a link to your blog. You can also tweet at me or send me an email (nowvoyaging [AT] gmail [DOT] com) with the same information. Once you have done that feel free to take one of the fabulous banners, that Fritzi of Movies Silently has so kindly designed for the event, and post it all over the blogosphere or at the very least your corner of it! I am so excited to host my first blogathon and I hope you will join me!

Agreed! Thanks for joining in the celebration of his life and works!
I am so sorry. I was out for the count with a fabulous fall cold. The movie wasn’t very good anyway, apart from the cinematography. I mean, who makes a 26-year-old Alfalfa play a 100-year-old Native American?!
