The Second Clark Gable Blogathon is here!


It's time to celebrate the king: the one and only Mr. Clark Gable. I loved holding this event last year; it introduced me to so many films and showed me just how beloved the actor remains to this day. For the next three days, join me and a terrific roster of writers as we honor one of the most iconic actors to ever grace the silver screen.

Bloggers, please send me your links as soon as possible and I'll link to them as fast as I can. I'm not a big social media person, so if you could please spread the word about this event, that would be so lovely of you!

P.S. If you're interested in joining another blogathon, I've got two coming up: one for Ms. Janet Leigh and my annual Van Johnson event!

  4. Dear Michaela,

    I just published my entry in this blogathon: https://pureentertainmentpreservationsociety.wordpress.com/2019/06/14/film-fashion-fridays-8-clark-gables-suit-from-the-hucksters-from-1947-dressing-with-sincerity-for-the-dear-mr-gable-blogathon/. I decided to write about one of Clark Gable's suits in "The Hucksters" from 1947. I hope your blogathon is a great success!

    Yours Hopefully,


    Tiffany Brannan
