The big day has finally arrived! Today is the day that we all come together to discuss the life and career of the great Deborah Kerr.

Today is also special, because if she had still been with us, Deborah would have been celebrating her birthday today. Happy Birthday, Deborah. You are missed by classic film fans the world over.

A number of truly wonderful bloggers have penned reviews and articles about Deborah and her films. Thank you so much for joining me to celebrate Deborah Kerr.

Check back to this post throughout the day. I will be linking back to all the articles as they come in. Happy reading.

    Hey, Maddy! I really hate to do this, especially so last minute, but I’m not going to be able to participate after all. Between school and two jobs, I just haven’t gotten very far with my post and I don’t think I’ll be able to get it done in time. I’m really sorry — if only there were more than 24 hours in a day! I hope your blogathon is a success!

      I tried to leave a comment on your post, but technology isn’t my friend. The article you wrote is lovely. I very much want to see the version of The End of the Affair with Deborah and Van Johnson, thanks for recommending it 🙂

      Hi Phyllis. No worries. Terrific post. I love the banner you made too. 🙂 I love King Solomon’s Mines, so I was very happy to see that one on your list. Deborah played so many different types of characters over the years, and she never dissapointed. Thanks so much for joining.
      I’m having trouble leaving comments on your blog because you don’t seem to accept name and url comments, and I don’t have a Google account. Hope you see this response.
