Readers, I apologize for my rather unannounced absence over the past week–Thanksgiving weekend kept me busy and this week it has been work keeping me busy! But as it is the last day in November, it’s time to say goodbye to Gene Tierney as Star of the Month, and to elect a new one for December. As I like to profile stars with birthdays in the corresponding month, the star whom I have chosen for honors in the month of December is:


With a birthday on December 27th, the legendary Marlene Dietrich will be profiled over this coming month.

Also, don’t forget that Backlots’ Dueling Divas Blogathon is happening December 20-23! If you haven’t signed up yet, drop me a comment to let me know you’ll be participating, and your blog will be added to the official participants’ list. I will be making another post in about a week, to which you can link your entries. In the meantime, start thinking about what you want to write about! Remember, this blogathon allows for all kinds of creative ideas. Keep them coming!

See you all in December!



  1. Lara, good luck with your great plans for December with the Dueling Divas and Marlene Dietrich’s birthday! Sounds like fun!

    While I have your attention, I’ve tagged you for Six Degrees of Separation, having already gotten my Goldie Hawn/Gert Frobe connection! Good luck, and have fun!

  2. Pardon me, Lara, I foolishly neglected to add that I’ve picked Myrna Loy and Danny Kaye for the next Six Degrees challenge! Again, good luck and have fun!
