'Carole-tennial(+3)!' blogathon: After day 1

We've just concluded the first day of the Carole Lombard blogathon, and despite some problems with LiveJournal (of all days for it to happen!), we've been notified of several entries. Here's what we know of so far:

* "In The Mood" examines Carole's portrayal of Irene Bullock in "My Man Godfrey": http://theswingmood.blogspot.com/2011/10/carole-tennial3-blogathon-irene-bullock.html (P.S. Congratulations to "In The Mood" for becoming the latest member of the LAMB flock.)

* Rianna, blogmeister of "Frankly My Dear," explains her five favorite things about Lombard: http://franklymydear-blog.blogspot.com/2011/10/caroletenniel-3-my-5-favorite-things.html

* Craig at "Blame Mame" gives the "411" on Carole: http://blamemameblog.blogspot.com/2011/10/blogathon-411-on-carole-lombard.html

* "A Person In The Dark" reviews "Twentieth Century," specifically how Carole provided the spice to complement the (very delicious) ham provided by John Barrymore: http://flickchick1953.blogspot.com/2011/10/carole-lombard-twentieth-century-what.html

* The blog "A Mythical Monkey Writes About The Movies," which has a special interest in the silent era, looks at Lombard's pre-sound career, or what's left of it to look at: http://mythicalmonkey.blogspot.com/2011/10/not-appearing-in-this-film-silent-movie.html

* "Defiant Success" saw "My Man Godfrey" for the first time, and liked what it saw: http://movienut14.blogspot.com/2011/10/my-man-godfrey.html

* "Godfrey" is also the topic of Jacqueline Lynch's fine "Another Old Movie Blog," and features several rare stills from the film: http://anotheroldmovieblog.blogspot.com/2011/10/my-man-godfrey-1936.html

* Page at "My Love For Old Hollywood" discusses her love of Lombard: http://myloveofoldhollywood.blogspot.com/2011/10/celebrating-carole-lombard-my-carole.html

* Dawn at the lively "Noir And Chick Flicks" tells us her favorite Lombard films: http://dawnschickflicks.blogspot.com/2011/10/carole-tennial3-dawns-favorite-carole.html

* Monty at "All Good Things" celebrates Lombard's birthday with some comments and some pictures: http://poohtiger-allgoodthings.blogspot.com/2011/10/happy-birthday-carole-lombard.html

* Technically, "The Hollywood Revue's" review of "In Name Only" is a day 2 entry since it came after midnight (Eastern). So what? Take a look: http://hollywoodrevue.wordpress.com/2011/10/07/in-name-only-1939/

That's 11 entries I know of; if I missed any, or you have new ones, respond at this entry.

To those who have contributed, thank you so much; to those who will contribute over the next few days, I await your entries; to those who want to join in at the last minute, the more the merrier. Don't be a wallflower.
