Blog Announcement for February!

I have a riddle for you!

What do these two things have in common?

The answer?  I love Warner Archive!  Those are the four Warner brothers, in case you didn’t know, and of course it is soon going to be Valentine’s Day!  So, to celebrate my love of the Warner Archive and to finally watch all the movies that I have bought or added to my watch list on Warner Archive Instant I am taking the entire month of February to say “Be my Valentine Warner Archive!”  That means for the entire month of February I will watch nothing but Warner Archive DVDs and Warner Archive Instant!  If you would like to join me on my quest for Valentine’s Day affection, let me know in the comments below and I will be sure to link to you!

Upcoming Blogathons, NEW Blogathon, Blog Announcements

January is here and there are many things happening!  Not only do I have THREE blogathons that I am participating in this month, BUT I have a few blog announcements!

First up let’s recap the blogathons that are coming up this month:

January 17th – Contrary to Popular Opinion Blogathon hosted by SisterCelluloid and MoviesSilently, I will be contributing an “anti” post about DR ZHIVAGO 

January 22-25th – Miriam Hopkins Blogathon hosted by SilverScreenings and ASmallPressLife, I’ll be writing a post about TROUBLE IN PARADISE

January 31st – Dueling Divas Blogathon hosted by Backlots, I will be writing about the relationship between Olivia de Havilland and Joan Fontaine

And NOW I am joining a new blogathon coming up this March and I am so so so so excited about it!  I am so excited, in fact, that I am doing TWO blog posts for it!  It is the Pre-Code Blogathon hosted by Danny at Pre-Code.com and ShadowsandSatin, running March 31st-April 3rd.  I am planning to write about two films, SAFE IN HELL and THE STRANGE LOVE OF MOLLY LOUVAIN.

I am so excited about this newest blogathon, since I have a deep and abiding love for pre-code films, that I am planning to spend the month of March watching nothing but pre-code films!  This is still in the early stages but I am thinking that this blogathon is the perfect excuse to watch all eight volumes of FORBIDDEN HOLLYWOOD from the Warner Archive.

Finally, a great big THANK YOU to everyone who has read this blog, left comments, RT’d entries on Twitter, liked my links on Facebook, or supported the blog in anyway!  We are over 1,000 views already and I can’t wait to share more movies with all of you!

Coming Attractions: Another January Blogathon!

This January I will be participating in not one, not two, but THREE classic film blogathons!  I have never had the chance to participate before and I am really looking forward to these!  I already mentioned two of these in a previous post but I wanted to let everyone know about the third one!

On January 17-18, 2015 is the Contrary to Popular Opinion blogathon hosted by Sister Celluloid and Movies Silently.  This is a fun one, where classic film fans will be either defending a classic film, actor, director, etc. that is not well liked, or lambasting a popular one.  The idea is that if we all join together, we can’t lose our classic film fan membership cards!  I will be posting an “anti” post about…DR ZHIVAGO.  Sorry Dr Z fans, but don’t unfollow me just yet!

Looking forward to seeing all the posts and entries for the January blogathons!  I am most excited to get to talk with other classic film fans, and classic film bloggers!

Coming Attractions for December and January

Hi everyone!

Just a quick post of some of the things you can look forward to over the next month or two!

Now that it is after Thanksgiving, I can finally break out the Christmas movies!  Hopefully I will be able to have a bunch to post about, but I will definitely try for at least two or three.  I’m thinking of CHRISTMAS IN CONNECTICUT, IT HAPPENED ON FIFTH AVENUE, and IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE.  Of course these may change, but if there are any Christmas films you think I should blog about leave me a comment below!

In January I am taking part in my first blogathons ever!  The first one is January 22-25 and is hosted by SilverScreenings and ASmallPressLife!  It is celebrating the lovely Miriam Hopkins and I will be contributing a post about TROUBLE IN PARADISE.

The second blogathon will take place on January 31st and is hosted by Backlots!  The topic is Dueling Divas and I will be posting about sisters, Olivia de Havilland and Joan Fontaine.

So there are some coming attractions for the next two months!  Thanks to everyone for making me feel so welcome to the classic film blogosphere, and to all of you who come and read these posts!  I am having a lot of fun and I can’t wait to blog more!
