Announcing The Noirathon

Regular readers of this blog know that I LOVE Film Noir. I’ve decided it’s high time I held a blogathon celebrating all things Noir.  

I invite you all to join me to walk through the dark alleys of Film Noir. For this blogathon you can write about any Noir film. You can write about your favourite characters and couples in Film Noir. You can write about the look and style of Noir films. You can write about the history of Film Noir and the impact these films had on cinema.

You can write more than one post for this if you wish to do so. I’m asking that there be No duplicate posts of films for this particular blogathon. There are so many Noir films out there that we shouldn’t need to all write about the same ones. That having been said though, if someone writes a full post about Double Indemnity, it is fine for someone else to write a bit about that film in a list/article which discusses various Noir films. It’s also fine to write about a remake of a Noir film of the same title. 

The blogathon will be held from the 27th – 29th of July, 2019. Please try to have your posts ready on or before those dates. Take one of the banners from below to put on your sites to help advertise this event. Check below to see who is writing about what. 

Have fun writing! Enjoy watching those Noir films!

  1. Oooh I’m excited for this one! Can I write about Barbara Stanwyck’s 1940s noir movies?

    They’re all great enough to warrant their own posts, but she’s so different in each of them that I thought it would be interesting to look at them all together 🙂

  2. Hi Maddy. I somehow missed this post (too much on the brain)…so, I’m going to brave it…have seen quite a few neo-noir movies…do those count? If so, I’ve been meaning to watch Lost Highway again for years…would be a great opportunity…Can I do that one? Or been meaning to watch True Romance again for ages…does that count?

  3. Yikes! I was in the hospital back in March when this was posted, so missed it. Might I write about the interesting borderline noir The True Story of Lynn Stuart (1958), pretty please?
