I was pondering over who or what the subject of my next blogathon should be. I’ve finally decided that it’s high time I shone the spotlight on Eleanor Parker. She’s one of my favourite classic era actresses, and she sadly seems to have become a very underrated and little discussed actress, something which I think we need to rectify.
I was first introduced to Eleanor as a little girl when I watched The Sound Of Music for the first time. As I’ve grown older I’ve sought out more of her work. One of my favourite Eleanor Parker performances is as the feisty Lenore in Scaramouche.
For this blogathon you can write about any of Eleanor’s films and performances. Tributes and articles are also very welcome. I will allow just two duplicates per film title, but no limit on favourite or best of lists. You can write more than one post if you wish to do so.
The Blogathon will take place on the 10th and 11th of October, 2020. Please have your posts ready on or before those dates. I’d appreciate it if you could let me know as soon as possible if you’re going to be late submitting your entry, or if something happens and you can no longer take part.
Check the participation list below to see who is writing about what. Please take one of the banners and place it on your site to help promote the event. Finally, I hope you enjoy spending some time with Eleanor and her films.
