  1. Dear Michael,

    Thank you for the email! I understand that WordPress has a habit of hiding comments. It’s nice to hear from you now! I appreciate the likes on some of my articles. By the way, if you are interested in joining one of our blogathons, we are hosting the Claude Rains Blogathon this weekend: We’d love to have you join if you aren’t too busy!

    This is a wonderful topic for a blogathon! The Fondas are a talented family, and they deserve a blogathon. Congratulations on hosting your first! I would like to join with an article about “Jezebel” from 1938. I enjoyed the performance of a young Henry Fonda when I watched this Southern period drama. Good luck with your blogathon. I hope you have a lot of participants.

    Yours Hopefully,

    Tiffany Brannan


  2. Thanks for the invitation, Michael, to write in your first blogathon. I will write about Yours, Mine, and Ours, which starred Henry Fonda and Lucille Ball as newlyweds, he being a widower with 10 kids and Lucille as a widow with 8 kids.


  3. Hi there, sent you a few messages but my WP playing up as not showing them so trying another of my email addresses!, anyway love to review Peter Fonda in Futureworld (1976)…(and not Ash Wednesday as I mentioned in my previous messages) from Gill at Realweegiemidget Reviews;


      1. Hi Michael,

        Can I post my reviews early? I wont be available to do it on the date of the blogathon, but can get it done by the end of Jan.




  4. Sent a couple of messages but not showing- can I change my post to Easy Rider? thanks from Gill at Realweegiemidget Reviews


  5. I noticed that my request hasn’t been approved yet. I was wondering if you missed it. I was hoping to do Shag with Bridget Fonda.


  6. Hey Michael. My entry on “The Lady Eve” will be a little late. I’m also not going to have time to write about “You Belong To Me” and “The Mad Miss Manton”. I did however find a half written post on “Barefoot In The Park”, so I’m finishing that off and will send that in instead. I am still doing The Lady Eve though.
