Dear Mr. Gable: A Celebration of the King of Hollywood Blogathon — Night Nurse (1931)

I have to admit that the start of my new job on top of some of my other writing commitments have kept me from following through on some of the blogathons that I've signed up for lately, which really disappoints me.
