I'm talking about none other than Carole Landis,… Continue reading A Century of Carole Landis Blogathon — A Scandal in Paris (1946)

Hedy Lamarr, who I just honored as part of my Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Blogathon comes to mind, as does Veronica Lake, who… Continue reading The Fourth Wonderful Grace Kelly Blogathon — Green Fire (1954)

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Blogathon — Comrade X (1940)

It feels like it's been forever since I've hosted my own blogathon, even though it's only been four months since I paid tribute to my first ever favorite actress, Natalie Wood, on what would have marked her 80th birthday back in July. Since then, I've seen so many inspiring movements on social media and beyond… Continue reading Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Blogathon — Comrade X (1940)

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Blogathon is Here!

To say that I have a lot going on in my life at the moment is an understatement. I've gone from a part-time job working only two days a week to having two days off (if I'm lucky), and in addition I've been watching movies as fast as I can before FilmStruck shuts down, all… Continue reading Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Blogathon is Here!

The day that so many of us have been waiting for is finally here! One hundred years ago, screen goddess Rita Hayworth was born, and she's captivated the world ever since.

The Deborah Kerr Blogathon — Tea and Sympathy (1956)

Sometimes there just isn't enough time in the day (or month, or year) to do everything  that you set out to do. For instance, towards the end of September I had intended to throw in a follow-up to part one of my classic film autograph collection that I posted all the way back in July.… Continue reading The Deborah Kerr Blogathon — Tea and Sympathy (1956)
