It's officially still winter, but spring in on the way and with it comes the CMBA Spring Blogathon! This year we take a look at the world of Femme/Homme Fatales of Film Noir. Attractive, seductive and dangerous women and men bringing deadly consequences to those they come in contact with Think Jane Greer in Out of the Past or Alain Delon in Purple Noon.
Two or more members can write about the same actress/actor but not about the same film. For example, Gloria Grahame in The Big Heat, Gloria Grahame in Human Desire and Gloria Grahame in In A Lonely Place is acceptable for three bloggers to select.
There are additional banners for you to use on your blogs as you wish.
The dates are April 16th through April 19th.
Provide me with your selection and the date that you would like. Date may be subject to change if we need to balance out the activity.
