CMBA Blogathon: Films of the Fabulous 1940s

The 1940s.
Full of feel good comedies, eye opening war movies and post war film noir angst.

From February 17-22, the Classic Movie Blog Association (CMBA) is going to be recognizing the Films of the Fabulous 1940s with a blogathon.

The blogathon is for CMBA members only, so be sure to add CMBA Blogathon in your post title, include a link to the post schedule on our blog site, and add the banner to your blog.

 Since there are so many films during the 1940s that should be recognized, we are asking for no repeat reviews.

E-mail  by February 8 to let us know which film you will be reviewing. Please use "CMBA 1940s Film Blogathon" for your e-mail title.

John Garfield Blogathon

In honor of the March 4th 100th birthday of the incredibly talented John Garfield, They Don’t Make ‘Em Like They Used To will host a blogathon.

Anyone may participate. Whether you want to write about one of John Garfield's films, his stage career, his "method" acting, his Hollywood blacklisting, or any other facet of his too-short life, you are invited to join in the 100th birthday celebration.

The blogathon will take place that entire weekend---Friday to Monday, March 1st through March 4th. More details will be forthcoming, as will directions for posting your article(s) to the blogathon.  For now, though, just let Patti know if you intend to be part of the fun and what aspect of Mr. Garfield's career or life you'd like to write about.  You can leave a comment on this post or email Patti at
