Announcing the Margaret Lockwood Centennial Blogathon

Legendary British actress Margaret Lockwood was born on September 15 1916. This September will then mark the 100th anniversary of her birth. It is for that reason that I have decided to hold the Margaret Lockwood Centennial Blogathon.

1. Posts can be on any topic related to Margaret Lockwood. One can write about one of her films, her career on stage, her television shows, or anything else related to Miss Lockwood one might wish to write about.

2. While Margaret Lockwood made several films, the sad fact is that many of them are not widely available, not even in the United Kingdom. I am then allowing duplicates. That having been said, I do not want to see every other post addressing The Lady Vanishes (1938) or The Wicked Lady (1945). While I love both films (in fact, they are my favourite films she ever made) and they are her most famous, she did make more films than those two!

3. I am not going to schedule days. I only ask that posts made on September 13, 14, or 15.

If you want to participate in the Margaret Lockwood Centennial Blogathon,  you can simply comment below or get a hold of me on Twitter at mercurie80, Google+, or at my email:  mercurie80 at gmail.com.

Terence Towles Canote said...

Peter, what is your blog URL?

Gill, I'll have to think of a topic!

Keisha said...

Great idea for a blogathon! Would it be possible for me to do a write-up comparing The Lady Vanishes and Night Train to Munich? If not, I'd like to cover the latter film instead. My blog Cinema Cities can be found here: cinemacities.wordpress.com

Terence Towles Canote said...

Keisha, yes, it would be possible! I have you down for them.

Tild Dallelie said...

Hi Terry! I would like to do a post about A Lady Surrenders, aka Love Story.

Caftan Woman said...

I settled in tonight to rewatch "Cast a Dark Shadow" and my old VHS tape wouldn't play! I would like to switch my topic to "The Stars Look Down". I wouldn't like to, but I have to unless some sort of miracle occurs.

Terence Towles Canote said...

I've got it switched to The Star Looks Down! So sorry about your VHS tape!

Peter S said...

It's "I Say Old Man" http://www.chartersandcaldicott.co.uk/i-say-old-man.html
