***An apology to those following the blog. An early unfinished draft of this post appears to have escaped into the wild and may have shown up in some of your readers. Unfortunately, stuff like that happens, I suppose, but I do apologize. This is that actual post as intended. Again, I’m sorry for any confusion or annoyance.***
Just to give you guys a heads up about something coming up down the road, I’m going to be participating in my first official Blogathon in July. For those who are unaware of the concept of the blogathon, basically, it’s a chance for a lot of different bloggers to share their writings on a particular topic or theme. In this case, the theme is “Dynamic Duos in Classic Film” – you know, those great onscreen pairings where a lot of times 1+1, while still equaling two, can also add up to so much more.The blogathon is being hosted by Once Upon a Screen and The Classic Movie Hub Blog.
So which “Dynamic Duo” have I chosen to write about? Well, you can probably take a pretty good guess just from looking at the pic at the right, or the one in the sidebar . Yep, it’s a pair that has been a favorite of mine since childhood, Abbott and Costello. I’ve actually signed up to do two posts for the blogathon, one looking at the various “meetings” the boys had (…Meet Frankenstein, …Meet the Mummy, etc) and the other focused more on some of the duo’s more mysterious comedies such as Hold That Ghost.
I’m really looking forward to participating in this, and hope y’all will enjoy what I come up with for it. And if you want more info on the blogathon, including a full list of the participating blogs, you can find it in the link below or by clicking on the sidebar banner.
Until next time, Happy Viewing!
