Well, readers, I must say, this blogathon has been a great success! On behalf of Carole & Co. and myself, thank you to everyone who submitted your posts. We so appreciate all the time and energy that went into these fantastic, informative entries, and we love reading all your work.
So without further ado, here are the final installments:
From our good friend Ivan at Thrilling Days of Yesteryear, we kick off our shoes for some Easy Living. http://thrillingdaysofyesteryear.blogspot.com/2014/05/the-romantic-comedy-blogathon-easy.html
At The Vintage Cameo, Garbo laughs in Ninotchka! http://www.thevintagecameo.com/2014/05/ninotchka-1939/
Don’t drink anything the old ladies give you at Amy’s Rib: A Life at the Movies, because she’s serving up the fabulous Arsenic and Old Lace. http://amysrib.blogspot.com/2014/05/the-romantic-comedy-blogathon-arsenic.html
Don’t wait to go over to The Merry Widow Waltz for a wonderful analysis of Heaven Can Wait. http://randompicturesblog.net/2014/05/04/the-merry-widow-waltz-lubitschs-heaven-can-wait/
Our blogathon regular Dorian at Tales of the Easily Distracted tells us how There’s Always a Woman. http://doriantb.blogspot.com/2014/05/theres-always-woman-blondell-ambition.html
At Movies Silently, we get a taste of early Lubitsch in The Merry Jail. http://moviessilently.com/2014/05/04/the-merry-jail-1917-a-silent-film-review/
At Girls Do Film, demand the ale that won for Yale (rah, rah, rah!) because it’s The Lady Eve! http://girlsdofilm.wordpress.com/2014/05/04/the-lady-eve-barbara-stanwyck-and-henry-fonda/
Go to Journeys in Classic Film for a crash course in culture (and maybe a good game of gin!), because Kristen is giving us Born Yesterday. http://journeysinclassicfilm.com/2014/05/05/born-yesterday-1950/
And my own contribution–from Backlots, it’s a case of mistaken identity in Ever Since Eve. https://backlots.net/2014/05/04/the-romantic-comedy-blogathon-ever-since-eve-1937/
Whew! That’s it, folks. Hope to see you next year at the second annual Romantic Comedy Blogathon!
