The Second Van Johnson Blogathon is here!
It's that time again! For the next three days, I'll be hosting the Second Van Johnson Blogathon, which is my minor way of saying thanks to Van for being such a delightful part of my life as a classic film fan. I can say without hesitation that Van is one of my very favorite actors, and I'm thrilled that so many bloggers have decided to join this event to help celebrate the man and his 102nd birthday.

P.S. Shameless self-promotion: in case you hadn't heard, I'll be hosting another birthday blogathon in October for the fabulous Ms. Rita Hayworth, who would have been 100! You can click here for the details.
P.S.S. Check back here on the 28th... there might be a fun new event that I just might be co-hosting with In the Good Old Days of Classic Hollywood...
