Announcing The Second Annual Alfred Hitchcock Blogathon

Last year I held an Alfred Hitchcock blogathon, it was a huge success and featured so many terrific Hitchcock related reviews and articles.The event ran for three days and you can read day 1 entries here, day 2 entries here, and day 3 entries here.

I have decided to run this blogathon again this year. I do hope that you can all take part. You can write about any of Hitchcock’s films, about his TV series, about Hitchcock himself, or about the actors and characters featured in his films. You can write more than one entry if you wish to do so. I will accept two duplicates per film title. Previously published reviews and articles are more than welcome.

The blogathon will be held for two days on the 6th and 7th of July, 2018. 

Just let me know what you would like to write about in the comments section below.Check the participation list to see who is writing about what. Take one of the banners from below and pop it on your site somewhere to help promote the event. Have fun writing!

  1. I’d like to review “The Trouble with Harry”. Of Hitchcock’s vast body of work, “Rear Window” is still perhaps my favorite, but as Wolffian got it first, I won’t copy. I found “Harry” to be hilarious, and will watch it again, just to make sure the plot is fresh in my mind. Thanks Maddy!! I LOVE Hitchcock and am glad to see another blog-a-thon featuring him. 😀

  2. Hi, Maddy. If you don’t mind, let’s twist things up a bit. How about, once most folks have signed up and you have things sorted, you pick one out for me and I will happily run with it? I’m assuming this means I will end up with one of the lesser-known films, and I really like a challenge. Interested?

  3. Hi Maddy – I’m going to try and blog more and think Alfred Hitchcock would be the perfect entry point. I would like to dig a little deeper into the past and will go for 1931’s THE SKIN GAME, an almost forgotten entry that deserves a bit of a retrospective.

      1. It’s certainly a long way down the list of must-see Hitchcock films, but I think it’s more interesting than it’s been given credit for, and there are definitely Hitch flourishes that are worth noting.

  4. Hello! I would love to write about ‘Marnie’! If no one takes ‘North by Northwest’, I would be happy to submit an article that I wrote for the AFI 100 Greatest Films list. 😀

      1. I actually didn’t know that he had made two version of that film. I’m only familiar with the James Stewart/Doris Day one from 1956. 🙂
