Announcing the Alan Ladd Blogathon
Oh, this was inevitable, wasn't it? I am hosting a blogathon dedicated to Alan Ladd! His birthday is September 3, so I thought, what better time to celebrate him than that weekend.
You are hereby invited to participate! Sign up in the comments on this post.
Alan Ladd made many, many movies, but I know from sad experience that quite a few are not yet available on DVD, so I will allow up to two posts about each of his films. But you don't need to limit yourself to movie reviews -- I will totally welcome blog posts about his life, an overview of his career, or whatever cool Alan Ladd-related topic you come up with.
My thanks to Quiggy for suggesting I host this! I know it will be great fun :-)
