The World War One in Classic Film Blogathon is nigh!

Update: The blogathon has begun! You can catch direct links to Saturday’s posts here. The wonderful Sunday contributors are here.

Well, kids, the World War One in Classic Film Blogathon is this weekend. In preparation, we have divided the roster in half. Silent-ology is taking Saturday, I am taking Sunday. If you need your day switched, just let one of us know and we will be happy to rearrange you.

And, yes, you can still join up. We would love to have you. Just name an unclaimed film, pick a day and you are good to go. Otherwise, sit back, relax and enjoy the posts. That’s what Erich von Stroheim will be doing.

      1. I think so. I hate to pull out so suddenly but I thought i had more time and I’ve got classes starting up next week and I’ve already got a ton of stress and pressure building up on me. That, and I’m not particularly confident that I’ll have time to watch Lawrence of Arabia before the blogathon starts.
