We here at True Classics are very excited about two upcoming blogathons in which we will be participating!
First up, starting on Sunday, Ferdy on Films and the Self-Styled Siren are joining forces to host For the Love of Film (Noir). Brandie will be contributing a post on the 1947 noir Lured, starring Lucille Ball (yes, that Lucy), George Sanders, and Charles Coburn.
The blogathon is being held in support of the Film Noir Foundation, and all of the funds collected will be dedicated to the restoration of 1950’s The Sound of Fury, starring Lloyd Bridges. I cannot urge you strongly enough to donate to this cause. Don’t underestimate the importance of preserving classic films!
For more information about the For the Love of Film (Noir) blogathon, check out the call for posts over at the Self-Styled Siren.
And at the end of this month, the Kitty Packard Pictorial will be hosting a blogathon to honor the centenary of the Blonde Bombshell herself, Jean Harlow, beginning on February 28th (Harlow’s birthday is March 3rd). Kitty has some great events planned, including giveaways of the new TCM Harlow film collection and the new book Harlow in Hollywood.
For more details, check out Kitty’s post about the celebration!
Both of these blogathons will be great fun, so make sure to participate if you can! And if you are participating in either one, tell us–what films are you going to be writing about?
