The John Garfield: The Original Rebel Blogathon is here!!!!


I am so excited that the day for John Garfield: The Original Rebel Blogathon has finally arrived!! I can't wait to read all the Garfield love! Since I saw him in Four Daughters (1938) I've been mesmerized by this man and I hope that some of you have discovered or rediscovered just how amazing he is!!

Normally I have a new post for each day of the blogathon but since there are less entries on this one I will be putting them all below.

Day 1:

Silver Screenings starts us off with the brilliant post Why We Need John Garfield in a Cary Grant Movie.

Why sure it's brilliant! You think it would be anything else?

My post from last years The Great Imaginary Film Blogathon on a fictional, 1940s version of Conspiracy Theory starring John Garfield and Maureen O'Hara.

Oh, the movie that could have been...

Caftan Woman show's us Garfield's world in The Breaking Point (1950)

We all look at Garfield like this ;)

Taking Up Room takes a fresh look at Air Force (1943) with Into the Wild Blue Yonder.

That look you get when you think you're listening to Orson Welles.

Reelweedgiemidget  Reviews tells us about Garfields' shocking final film, He Ran All the Way (1951).


Day 2:

Old Hollywood Films starts off the day with her review of the melodrama Humoresque (1946).

 
Taking Up Room shares her second post, this time exploring the afterlife and Waiting for Judgement with Between Two Worlds (1944).

Garfield really knows how to capture an audiences attention!

Finding Franchot tell us about Garfield and Tone's Group Theatre experience and friendship.


Crimson Kimono reviews the often overlooked film but perfect pairing of actor and actress in The Fallen Sparrow (1943).


Cary Grant Won't Eat You talks Garfield as sexy con-man in Nobody Lives Forever (1946).


Day 3:

Mike's Take on the Movies covers the explosive performance of Garfield in He Ran All the Way (1951).

So explosive the window shattered!

Taking Up Room shares her third and final post on the true story of A Highly Ordinary Life in Pride of the Marines (1945).


Critica Retro chronicles Garfield's rise as a violinist in Humoresque (1946).

Me when I spot John Garfield in a movie.

The Flapper Dame tells us how Garfield elevates a classic noir plot in The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946).


Musings of a Classic Film Addict gives us her analysis of Between Two Worlds (1944).


Lifesdailylessonsblog writes a wonderful tribute and life story on Hollywood's Forgotten Hero.


Back to Golden Days wraps things up with John Garfield and the Hollywood Blacklist.


Keep checking back for more great posts!

    I've been rather busy with work lately, so that's why it took me so long to write it. But I hope you can still accept it.
