It's still summer, but the fall season is coming soon and with it comes the CMBA Fall Blogathon. This year is special as we celebrate the organization’s 10th anniversary! The CMBA is the brainchild of founding father Rick Armstrong (thank you, Rick!). In celebration, our subject this time around is anniversaries. Anniversaries of all kinds: Wedding, job, film directors, film anniversaries, for example, the twenty-fifth anniversary of Pulp Fiction (in five-year increments only 15, 20, 25, 30, etc.). Another example would be the anniversary of acting teams: Gable and Lombard, Laurel and Hardy, etc. (any anniversary year is acceptable). Be creative. If you’re not sure, ask!
Just a few rules. Only one film, acting team, director, etc. If a film is taken or an acting team you will be notified to make another selection.
Join us for The Anniversary Blogathon. The dates are Oct. 15th through Oct 18th.
Provide me with your selection and the date that you would like. Date selected may be subject to change if we need to balance out the activity.
