Announcing the Sixth 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!

Can I write about Van Johnson and his history/friendship with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz?ReplyDelete
Absolutely! Great topic!Delete
Hi Michaela, can you add me with Van in Concorde Affaire '79 please?ReplyDelete
You got it!Delete
Hi! Can I do Battleground for the Stop Button?ReplyDelete
I'm having some trouble with the Internet these last few days, so I'll try this request a second time. I would like to write about Scene of the Crime (1949) for your blogathon. Would that work?ReplyDelete
Make Mine Film Noir
Great choice! And the problem was probably my comment moderation. I have a big issue with spam, so no comments will appear on here unless I approve them.Delete
Thanks for joining!
Hi Michaela! I'd like to join the blogathon by reviewing 'In the Good Old Summertime'!ReplyDelete
It's yours! :)Delete
I'm glad this event is back! Could I write about Three Guys Named Mike, please?ReplyDelete
Le from Crítica Retro (www.criticaretro.blogspot.com)
Ah, I almost missed your comment, Le! Sorry about that!Delete
I would LOVE to have you cover that film. Thanks for joining!
Hi, Michaela! I was wondering if I could write about "Killer Crocodile" for Taking Up Room? I'm sure Van's part is really small, but it looks oddly interesting.ReplyDelete
I don't think I've heard of that one, surprisingly! Looking forward to reading about it!Delete
