Update on The William Wellman Blogathon!

The William Wellman Blogathon is coming up very soon and I am so happy with the response so far!  It is terrific that so many bloggers are willing to come together and celebrate the works and life of William Wellman!  Couple that with the blessing of William Wellman Jr. and I am excited for what is sure to be a terrific event!

    Actually could I change my pick of Lady Burlesque and do “It’s A Big Country” instead. I really want to do “It’s A Big County” because Ethel is in it. So put me down on the roster for It’s A Big Country” instead of Burlesque

    This is going to be great! I actually don’t know much about Wellman so this will be interesting.

    Okay, I am going to join in belatedly. I was trying to think of a movie to cover, and I realized I have Maybe It’s Love (aka Eleven Men and a Girl ) recorded from TCM on my DVR. I take that as a sign! I’ll have my post go live on the last day, September 13.
