The big day has finally arrived! 🙂 It’s time for us to all gather together to celebrate the life and career of Joseph Cotten.

I will be your hostess accepting the entries for today. The lovely Crystal will be your hostess for the next two days over at In The Good Old Days Of Classic Hollywood.

We are both really looking forward to reading all of your reviews and articles over the next three days. Thanks again for joining us in this celebration of Joseph Cotten and his films. Check back to this post throughout today to see the entries.

    Hi Maddy🌷😊
    I wanted so badly to finish this blog on Cotton. I just love him. I even accidentally published the rough draft. I deleted it of course but not before a couple readers told me the link didn’t work. I guess Joseph Cotton has a lot of fans.
    Anyway, right now I am the care giver of an elderly and very sick sister. My free time is nil right now.
    I hope things will get better in the near future, but, until then, my life is temporarily on hold.
    I do plan on finishing this post and others I have worked on. I apologize for breaking my commitment to your Blogathon…if a miracle happens and I can complete this post by tomorrow, I would be so relieved 😌
    Thank you for the opportunity to post in this Blogathon; and, I hope you will Welcome a post from me in future Blogathons. I wish you and other bloggers much success; and, I look forward to reading your posts. Xx

    You really are the queen of queens of blogathon land, Maddy. The perfect way to spot light stars on to us who have lesser knowledge of these great movies. I know him from The Third Man and Soylent Green plus a few I see he was in but didn’t realise, like Twilight’s Last Gleaming and Airport 77. So I need to up my game, so here’s a great place to get some tips. Cheers everyone.
