ANNOUNCING The Bill & Myrna New Year's Blogathon!


For the past few years, TCM has shown the Thin Man films for a New Year's marathon. To celebrate our favorite fictional married couple, The Flapper Dame and I thought it would be fun to celebrate with Bill and Myrna in another way - with a blogathon!! Therefore, we are excited to announce The Bill and Myrna New Year's Blogathon 🍸 which will take place from January 1-3, 2018.


Bill and Myrna made fourteen films together and many, many more on their own, so there are lots of fabulous movies to talk about. They also had amazing friendships and lots of personal stories that would be fun to write about, so we ask that there be no duplicates so we can cover as much of these two amazing actors lives and careers as possible. Once you've decided on a topic, let one of us know in the comments section with the name and link to your blog. Finally, grab a banner (I'm pretty excited with how they turned out) and spread the word! Oh, and free martini's for everyone!! ;)

  2. Not sure if I should take this on or not. I'm running my Inspirational Heroes blogathon around the same time. But it would be a good excuse to do The Thin Man. (No I'm not going to take on all of he Thin Man movies, just the first one.) Pencil me in for it. I'll let you know in December if I can fulfill the obligation.

  8. Like Quiggy, I'm hesitant to sign on because I'm co-hosting the Inspirational Heroes blogathon with him just-before-and-slightly-overlapping-with this one, but... Myrna Loy. Um. Hmmm. I've never properly reviewed The Best Years of Our Lives (1946), so can I have that one? At Hamlette's Soliloquy, of course.

    LOVE the buttons!

  10. I thought about this and then looked at the lineup and my first two choices, Love Crazy and I Love You Again, were taken. Then I noticed that the first two Thin Man movies were also taken, but the my favorite in the series is the third one, Another Thin Man. Can I do that one? My blog is Blog of the Darned: https://chrissturhann.blogspot.com/.
