What’s better than a silent movie? A free silent movie! That’s right, I have Blurays to give away and both feature the glorious Gloria Swanson!
While the silent era lasted for over three decades, it is the 1920s that seems to define the art of mute cinema. People who don’t know any better even type things like “1920s silent movie” without thinking twice.
Today is the last day of the Swashathon and there are still new posts coming in. I have been updating the roster since Friday, so be sure to check it out and enjoy all the swashbuckling goodness!
The Swashathon is here at last! Bloggers from all around the web will be submitting posts on glorious adventure films from all around the world. Check back often over the next four days as I will be updating this post as participants complete their submissions.
The Swashathon launches this coming Friday! I am very much looking forward to reading everyone’s posts and so I thought I would publish a few reminders for everyone’s convenience.
A few weeks back, I invited my readers to cook along with me and I was even able to offer prizes thanks so generous backers. Well, it’s time to announce the winners and share some recipe pictures!
I’m very excited! It’s time to bring back my favorite blogathon of all time, a celebration of clashing swords, wooden ships, iron men and women, etc. What am I talking about? The Swashathon!
I have been having so much fun with my vintage movie star recipes that I have decided it’s time to share that fun with my readers. Let’s cook something together!
It’s here at last! Some wonderful participants are going to join me in celebrating women directors from the dawn of cinema to 1970! Do join us on this tour of this forgotten realm of film history.
After a hiatus from blogathon hosting, I am back and rarin’ to go! I was thrilled and honored when Flicker Alley invited me to host an event in celebration of their new Early Women Filmmakers box set (it will be released May 9, 2017) and I’m sure you’ll be just as excited.
What’s better than a Buster Keaton Bluray? A free Buster Keaton Bluray! That’s right, the good people at Kino Lorber have provided two Buster Keaton Bluray sets for me to give away to my readers!
I promised to deliver this before the new year and I did! Okay, so it was down to the wire but it’s here at last!
If you’re like me, you were pretty excited when Flicker Alley announced that they would be releasing Children of Divorce (1927), which stars Clara Bow and Gary Cooper. Well, it gets even better! How would you like to win a copy?
Welcome to the day four recap of the Classic Movie History Project. You can catch up on previous recaps here. Enjoy!
It’s here at last! The geekiest blogathon that ever was! The Classic Movie History Project has arrived at last.
Welcome to the happiest blogathon of the year! Participants are going to be sharing their favorite happy films, recipes and movie memories. Pull up a chair and stay a while! I will be updating this post throughout the event.
The Silent Star Sandwich Contest has been fun but it’s time to announce the winner.
You may have noticed that I have been out of the blogathon business for a while. Well, I’m baaaaaack!
I don’t know about you kids but I am starving? And why is that? I have been reading recipes for the past couple of weeks!
Whew! What a great event! A huge thanks to everyone who took part in the Backstage Blogathon, from the wonderful participants to the loyal readers. An especially huge thanks to my co-hostess, Janet of Sister Celluloid. And another big thanks to the unsung blogathon heroes: readers who left encouraging comments or helped promote other participants’ posts on social media. I’m sure all the participants greatly appreciated your generosity.
Welcome to the third day of our celebration of movies about the behind-the-scenes goings on of the entertainment industry. We have had posts about radio, television, dancing, singing and theatrical performances.
The first day of the Backstage Blogathon had a lot of impressive posts, I must say. Let’s take a gander at all the behind-the-scenes goodies that got covered in loving detail:
The Backstage Blogathon has launched! We already have some wonderful participation and we truly thank you for joining out little shindig. My co-host for the event is Janet of Sister Celluloid, who uses her blog to share her love of classic film in general and velvet-voiced British actors in particular. If you are not following her already, you should start. (Online, that is.)
First, an enormous thanks to the folks who have submitted sandwiches so far. They have been smart, creative and they sound delicious. I can tell it will be difficult to select a winner but that’s a good problem to have, right?
It’s finally here! The day has arrived when you can start submitting your entries for the Silent Star Sandwich Contest. For those of you joining us for the first time, this is my very first contest and I am very excited.
Welcome aboard! Sister Celluloid and I are hosting an event that celebrates gateway films, movies that help people appreciate classic film. So sit back and enjoy a happy and fun-filled blogathon celebrating the best of the best.
The readers have spoken! By a unanimous vote, we are going to be holding our very first contest here at Movies Silently.
100 years ago today, Douglas Fairbanks leaped across the silver screen for the very first time. What better way to celebrate than to hold a blogathon of swashbuckling adventure?
I’m happy to announce my first blogathon for 2016, the Backstage Blogathon. Janet of Sister Celluloid is joining me once again as my co-hostess.
What’s this blogathon about? Well, the film industry has always loved to make movies about itself and we are going to be taking a look at those pictures.
