Robert Donat is one of my favourite actors. I also consider him to be one of the greatest actors of the classic film era. He was one of those actors who could say so much with merely a glance or a gesture.He is sadly not very often discussed today, even among those of us in the classic film community. I think it’s high time that Robert had a blogathon held in his honour.
For this Blogathon you can write about any of his films, any of his performances, and you can also write about Robert himself. Tribute posts are welcome. Favourite films/performances/characters lists and articles are very welcome too.
I will only be allowing 2 duplicates per film title,and a maximum of two posts each. The Blogathon will be held on the 3rd,4th and 5th of July,2020. Please have your entries ready on or before those dates. If something happens and you know you’re going to be late publishing,or you won’t be able to take part at all, please do let me know as soon as you can.
Take one of the banners from below and pop it on your site somewhere to promote the event.Let me know what you want to write about. Check the list below to see who is writing about what. Let’s honour this lovely man and great actor. Happy writing and Robert Donat film watching!
