Time to celebrate a classic, blogathon style



I think it safe to say most people with any sort of knowledge of Hollywood history would define Carole Lombard's 1937 film "Nothing Sacred" (she's shown here with co-star Fredric March) as a classic. Well, it just so happens that in less than two months, a day has been designated to honor such films -- in fact, just about any more made before 1970:



That day is May 16, and for the second time in four days, I've agreed to participate in a blogathon (the other one, on short subjects, will take place in early May). This one, "My Favorite Classic Movie Blogathon," is set for May 16, and is sponsored by the Classic Film & TV Cafe (http://www.classicfilmtvcafe.com/2015/03/a-blogathon-in-celebration-of-inaugural.html).



Just which Lombard "classic movie" will I choose (I have several favorites)? Not certain yet, but I have plenty of time. As of this writing, 13 blogs have chosen favorite movies, and I'm sure the number will grow. For now, I'll contribute this way...with a poster suitable for borrowing:
