  1. Because I love this blogathon idea so much, put me down for two movies: Easy to Love (1953) and Follow the Fleet (1936). My blog is LoveLettersToOldHollywood.blogspot.com.

  2. What a lovely, sunny idea for a blogathon! I’d like to write about a perennial feel-good fav of mine, CHARADE (and my all-time favorite ice cream scene in cinema), if it’s available!

  3. This year has, indeed, had an inauspicious beginning. I can’t decide between Pillow Talk (1959) and The Trouble With Angels (1966). I’d love to do both, but I don’t want to overpromise!!

  4. Yes, we definitely need a little Christmas, or something, right this very minute!! I’d love to talk about the time Richard Widmark hugged me… and I may write about my fabulous chocolate pie, but want to make it a second time to make sure it comes out well again before I fob it off on anyone. But I’m definitely showing up with Richard Widmark. So to speak. Welcome back, my dear, and thank you for this fabulous event!! <3

  5. Hi Fritzi! What a wonderful idea! I’d like to write about On the Town (with a little emphasis on the power of MGM technicolor musicals to bring me out of the dumps). simoa-writes.blogspot.com

  6. Howdy. I’d like to write about a handful of WB cartoons. I’m not sure which ones, yet, but almost definitely HIGH DIVING HARE, at least. Is that specific enough? The blog is fforfilms.WordPress.com. Thanks!

  7. I want colored sprinkles on mine!!!!! When I think of funny films that bring out the cheer and laughs I go to YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN for a roll in that happy hay!!!!

    1. You can have colored sprinkles galore but at 1974, Young Frankenstein is just outside our date range. Let me know if you have a second choice as I would love to have you aboard!

  8. Great idea! Could I have PlayTime (1967)? I might add a second topic once I go home and look through my collection, if that’s okay — I feel like I’m forgetting some favorites that would fit the theme. Thank you!

  9. Ah yes! I forgot the 1970s cut off
    I shall go have some soft serve give myself and ice cream headache and wait for the inspiration to hit me!!!! I’ll think of something

  10. 1967 was a good year! I’ll be joining Mad Monster Party with Boris Karloff and Phyllis Diller as the hostess with the leastest
    It’s a wonderful campy clay animation celebration ….!!!!!

  11. Hi, Fritzi, could you please put me down for Laurel & Hardy as a general topic of happiness and/or Way Out West in particular? I’m getting happy just thinking about them.


  12. I haven’t participated in many blogothons before, but I think I’ll give this one a whirl. Put me down for “The Wizard of Oz” (1939 version). I’d also like to cover “The Gay Divorcee” (1934), but I’m worried that might be too ambitious of me. Can you put me down for both anyway, just in case?
    Oh, and my website is StorytellerGirlGrace.com

  13. May I do an article about random movie-watching memories, both in film class and in movie theaters? Earliest film will probably be Intolerance and how the professor berated the class because we couldn’t stop laughing at it. Latest would be The Empire Strikes Back–I have a cute anecdote about something that happened while waiting for the movie to start. (Well, I think it’s cute, anyway.)

  14. Fritzi, I love, love LOVE this idea for a blogathon! And the banners are adorable! I want a tote bag in that design.

    May I have It’s a Great Feeling (1949)? It’s not the best movie, but it’s so much fun with all those cameos.

  15. Fritzi: What a charming ‘thon idea! In honor of my heroes Laurel & Hardy and the mud puddles they always seemed to end up in, I’d like to share my recipe for dirt cake — a dessert a lot more appetizing than it sounds!

  16. I’d like to write about Ma and Pa Kettle at the Fair, and since Ma always liked to enter her items in the county fair, I’ll share my blue-ribbon recipe for strawberry-rhubarb pie, if that’s sounds OK to you.

  17. Hi, I love your idea for this blogathon! I’d love tor write about “A Pair of Tights” from 1929 because it’s one of the most hilarious silent films I’ve ever seen and also because it revolves around ice cream!

  18. Hi Fritzi, You seem to have a small hole in your schedule. You have people doing Pillow Talk and Send Me No Flowers, but no Lover Come Back. You’re missing the middle movie in the Rock Hudson Doris Day trilogy. Oh, the humanity. Thus, I’d like to be a VIP and do Lover Come Back for Blog of the Darned:


  19. Oh my, you are making this difficult for a film noir blog, but I love a challenge. May I write about the pleasure of noir featuring a happy ending? Pick-up on South Street in particular, though I might mention others (with a big old spoiler warning).

    1. Sounds great! But feel free to choose something dark and grim if it is what makes you happy. It’s all about participants sharing their pick-me-ups and sometimes there’s nothing like a nice, depressing ending. I know, I watch the most depressing Russian films when I have a cold. 😉

      1. Ah, good point. And noir does often entertain me joyously. But I actually like this topic and will write about the endings of Pick-up on South Street, Key Largo, and No Man of Her own — all films that see m headed for darkness but end up in romantic happiness that we can enjoy because it’s earned (vs. Gilda where it’s not earned).

  20. Fritzi this is the perfect blogathon to ease myself back into writing – I’ve had a terrible writer’s block 🙁
    I’d like to write about My Fair Lady, which never fails to put me in a good mood. I’ll have a think about a sweet-treat pairing, probably one inspired by the black-and-white races scene

  21. Darn, someone already took A Pair of Tights! I’ll just snap up The Hidden Fortress then, because it’s so much more than its “it inspired Star Wars” reputation. And it’s a lot of fun, with Toshiro Mifune (in tight shorts /swoon/) and an excellent heroine.

  22. This is an amazing idea for a blogathon!
    Well, I guess Someone Likes It Hot always put a smile on my face no matter how many times I’ve watched it 🙂

  23. Love this idea! I’d love You Were Never Lovelier. Hayworth & Astaire dancing always make me smile, and that movie is just sugary sweet and just what’s in order right now.

  24. I realize I’m getting in on this at the bottom of the ninth inning and all, but I thought as I watch BEACH PARTY (1963) right now, that this would fit the bill very nicely. I’ve already covered beach party movie reviews in a post before, but I’d like to share a recipe or two that is BEACH PARTY themed. Would that be ok?
