Announcing the Fifth Annual Van Johnson Blogathon!

 

It's time to announce the return of one of my favorite events: my Van Johnson blogathon! MGM's Golden Boy, America's Sweetheart, and the bobbysoxers' dream man, Van is one of classic Hollywood's most underrated talents, which makes me all too glad to host this annual three-day tribute to him.

The rules are simple: talk about Van. You can discuss his films, his TV appearances, his stage work, or his personal life -- just remember to be kind! Also, a topic can only be taken a maximum of two (2) times. I would love for this to be a diverse celebration of Van because he more than deserves it.

To join, please leave me a comment, select a banner below, and I'll see you in August!

    1. You sure can! And your comments came through for me -- I just get a lot of spam so I now have to approve comments before they can publish. :)

    1. Absolutely! And thank you! I went super lazy on the banners this year (hence why there are only two), but I really liked how they turned out.
