Announcing The Deborah Kerr Blogathon

Deborah Kerr is one of my favourite actresses from the classic film era, and I want to hold this blogathon to celebrate Deborah and her films. I do hope that you can all join me to pay tribute to this very talented lady.

Deborah Kerr was born Deborah Jane Kerr- Trimmer, in Glasgow, on the 30th of September, 1921. She would go on to become one of the most beloved and famous actresses of her day, and she worked in both English and American films. On screen she was the epitome of an English rose. 

For this blogathon you can write about any of the films and TV series that she appeared in. You can write about her entire career. You can write a tribute to her. You can write about your favourite Deborah Kerr characters and performances. If you ever met her or corresponded with her you can write about that too.

You can write more than one post if you want to.Previously published posts are very welcome too. I will accept two duplicate posts per screen title. 

The blogathon will be held on the 30th of September, 2018. Please post your entries on or before this date. 

Let me know below what you want to write about. Please take one of the banners and put it on your site somewhere to help promote the event. Check the participation list below to see who is writing about what.

  1. I swear I was torn between the same two as above, Tea and Sympathy and Black Narcissus! Since the latter is now taken, I’ll go for Tea and Sympathy for Musings of a Classic Film Addict, please!

  2. I would love to cover Vacation from Marriage (1945). I haven’t seen it yet, but I’ve heard nothing but good things.

      1. I was a bit disappointed by it because the son is not actually present in the movie. It’s all told in flashbacks, but I initially thought that the son would of at least been shown in the flashbacks. Overall, the film does garner positive reviews, though many people have stated that the absence of Edward the son does take away from the movie.


  3. Oh gosh, I just adore Deborah. Thank you for this! May I please write something about her performance in An Affair to Remember or The Life And Death of Colonel Blimp? Whichever one is still available? 🙂

  4. Maddy, it being a long time since I last watched Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison that I wanted to watch it again before writing my contribution to the blogathon. Unfortunately, when I settled down to watch I discovered my all-region player is on the fritz! Best laid plans and all that. I shall be submitting a piece on Reunion at Fairborough and hope that is OK with you.
