I've noticed this past year that a lot of actresses have been given attention in the blogathon circle. Since January we have honored Loretta Young, Barbara Stanwyck, Dorothy Lamour, Bette Davis, Audrey Hepburn, Katharine Hepburn, Olivia de Havilland, Joan Crawford, Margaret Lockwood, Ingrid Bergman, and later this year Grace Kelly and Agnes Moorehead. The only men we have honored have been the two Barrymore brothers (along with their sister Ethel), and directors Mel Brooks and Alfred Hitchcock.
In June of this year we had the 50th Anniversary of Cary Grant's final film Walk Don't Run (1966) but unfortunately I didn't realize it until the day had passed. I also missed his birthday. Therefore I have decided to hold a blogthon honoring one of the Classiest Actors that has ever lived on the 30th anniversary of his death, November 29. Since Thanksgiving is the 24th, I've decided to hold it in the middle of the week instead of the weekend, running from Tuesday November 29th to Thursday December 1st.
Here are the rules:
1. Since Cary Grant made over 70 films, I ask for no duplicates. There are plenty of favorites to go around.
2. Once you have picked your topic (anything Cary Grant related) leave a comment here with the name of your blog and the link (especially if clicking on your name just brings me to your Google+ profile). Please also include the year your movie was released, if applicable. If you have trouble commenting you can also contact me on my fb page or via Twitter (@Solidmoonlight).
3. Choose one of the banners to display on your blog and help spread the word! Use #CaryGrantBlogathon on Twitter!
