'39 CMBA blogathon schedule 'Made'

Current mood: pleasedpleased


That pic of Carole Lombard, James Stewart and baby -- not to mention the subject header -- should give you an idea of what I'll be doing in a few weeks for the Classic Movies Blog Assocation's latest blogathon, on the films of 1939:



Of course, having to do the entry from a Lombard perspective didn't provide me with much of a choice, as Carole made but two films in '39 -- this one and "In Name Only." I promise to come up with some interesting angles for the entry, which is scheduled to run May 16, three weeks from today. In fact, here's the entire schedule (and the URLs for the member sites handling them), just to give you an idea of what to expect:

Watching A Year –- All the Films Of 1939
http://www.jnpickens.wordpress.com/

It should be a lot of fun reviewing this year, arguably the apex of classic Hollywood. And more than a few of the films to be profiled go beyond "the usual suspects" from that halcyon year ("The Lone Wolf Spy Hunt"? "We Are Not Alone"? "The Starmaker"?). All in all, this promises to be a slightly different approach to cinema '39.
