ANNOUNCING the Fourth Annual Olivia de Havilland Blogathon!

I am excited to announce that, for the fourth year in a row, Crystal of In the Good Old Days of Classic Hollywood and I are hosting a blogathon in honor of our beloved Olivia de Havilland, who will be turning 104 on July 1st!

The blogathon will run from July 1st to July 3.

Here are the rules:

1. Choose any film or topic pertaining to Dame Olivia. Up to TWO Duplicates are allowed, so if you see that only one blogger is writing about, say, The Adventures of Robin Hood, you are free to write about it also.

2. Once you have made your selection(s), leave a comment below or over on Crystal's blog. Please be sure to include the name and link to your blog (so I don't have to look it up).

3. Please be sure to acknowledge both hosts in your post with a link back to their blog.

4. Lastly, grab a banner and spread the word!

  1. Yay!! I've been waiting for this post. :) I am going to claim The Proud Rebel (1958). Thanks for hosting this for another year!

    Movies Meet Their Match

    1. Watched that for the first time this year. Great choice :)

  2. YAYAYAYYAYAYAYAYYAYAYAY! Please put me down for Dodge City (1939).

    How amazing that she'll be 104! Thanks for making this an annual thing. I look forward to it every year!

  3. Why is no one claiming Olivia's films with Cagney?

    No THE IRISH IN US or STRAWBERRY BLONDE? Or have they been covered enough in previous blogs?

    1. I think Strawberry Blonde was picked in past years. Maybe you'd like to write about one of them ;)

  4. Fun! Awww... it looks like Robin Hood's already taken twice? If I can get my hands on it I'd like to try and do a review of Captain Blood.

  5. Hi there, here's my post for the blogathon for todays post! Hope all good with you! Gill from Realweegiemidget Reviews
