Announcing The Anna Neagle Blogathon

As we start to approach the end of 2019, I would like to invite you all to join my next blogathon. 

This one will be held in the New Year and it is going to be dedicated to the great British actress, Dame Anna Neagle. Anna was one of the most talented British actresses working during the classic film era. She is best remembered today for the many films in which she portrayed well known historical figures, including Edith Cavell and Queen Victoria.  She married director and producer Herbert Wilcox, and the pair made many films together. Anna was also a producer herself.

For this blogathon you can write about any of Anna’s films. You can write tributes to Anna. You can write about her partnership with her husband. You can write about her entire career. If you’re not familiar with Anna and her work, why not take this as the perfect opportunity to rectify that and seek out her films? I will allow 2 duplicates per screen title, and a maximum of 3 posts per person. 

The blogathon will be held on the 1st and 2nd of January, 2020. Please have your entries ready on or before those dates. Check the entry list below to see who is writing about what. Take one of the banners below and put them on your site to help promote the event. Have fun writing about Anna and her work!

  1. Hiya Maddy! I don’t believe that I’ve seen anything with Anna Neagle so this is fantastic opportunity to get to know her. In going through her filmography, I chose ‘Odette’ (1950). 🙂

      1. Heya Maddy! I didn’t see at first that you were also doing ‘Odette’ so to add some variety, I’d like to change my choice to ‘Irene’ (1940), if that’s ok with you. 😊
