Myself and Crystal from In The Good Old Days Of Classic Hollywood are teaming up together to bring you our next blogathon.
We have decided to honour a lady who was one of the most talented and popular actresses of the classic film era.
The subject of our blogathon is the legendary Barbara Stanwyck.
Known affectionately by those who knew her as “Missy”, Barbara became famous for her natural acting style. She also became well known for playing strong, independent and intelligent characters in her films.
Barbara Stanwyck dominated the screen in every single scene that she appeared in. She is one of those actors who could say so much with just a look or expression.
For this blogathon you can write about any of Barbara’s films,TV series, or TV episodes. You can write tributes to her. You can write about her acting ability. You can write about her whole life and career. You can write about her lovely friendship with William Holden. You can write about your favourite Barbara Stanwyck performances. Perhaps you met or corresponded with her and want to tell us about that?
We will accept two duplicates per screen title. You can write more than one post if you wish to, but we ask that you please don’t write more than three.
The blogathon will be held on the 20th, 21st and 22nd of January, 2019. I will be your hostess on the 20th. Crystal will be your hostess on the 21st and 22nd. Please send us your entries on or before those dates.
Let us know what you want to write about below. Take one of Crystal’s lovely banners to put on your site to help promote the event. Have fun writing about Barbara and watching her films.
