Announcing The Ava Gardner Blogathon

After toying with the idea for a while now, I have decided that I want to try and host one more blogathon this year. The subject for the last 2018 blogathon will be Ava Gardner.

Ava would have been 96 years old this year. I decided that I would hold this blogathon over two days, one of which is her birthday. I do hope that you will all join me to celebrate the life and career of this screen legend. Ava is someone who I admire a great deal. What you saw with Ava was what you got. Ava was open, generous, kind, fun and honest. She always seemed so down to earth too. 

For this blogathon you can write about any of Ava’s films. You can write about your favourite Ava Gardner performances. You can write a tribute to her. You can write about her life and career. I will accept two duplicates per screen title. You may write more than one post if you wish, but no more than three posts per person please. 

The blogathon will be held on the 23rd and 24th of December, 2018. If Ava was still with us today, she would be celebrating her 96th birthday on the 24th of December this year. 

If you would like to join in the fun, simply let me know what you want to write about below. Take one of the banners from below and put it on your site somewhere to help promote the event. Have fun writing about Ava and watching her films.

 

Films that have now already been chosen twice are The Killers, Pandora And The Flying Dutchman and Mogambo.

  1. I was going to take a bit of a break and only participate in one blogathon next month, but you’ve tempted me with Ava! As much as I’d like to write about one of her films, I think this would be the perfect opportunity to write about when I visited the Ava Gardner Museum in Smithfield, NC last year, if that’s alright with you!
