ANNOUNCING The Second Annual Olivia de Havilland Blogathon + Errol Flynn!!!

Crystal from In the Good Old Days of Classic Hollywood and I are excited to announce that the Olivia de Havilland Blogathon is back! And this time we've added Errol Flynn!!

Last year we hosted the Olivia de Havilland Centenary Blogathon in honor of Miss de Havilland's 100th birthday. As she is still with us, and since last years was so successful, we've decided to bring it back. Errol Flynn, Olivia's most famous co-star, celebrates his birthday June 20 so we decided to add him to this annual event (he would be 108).

The blogathon will run from July 1st to July 3 with a wrap-up day on the 4th. I will be hosting day's 1 and 3. Crystal will be hosting day 2 and the wrap-up day.

Here are the rules:

1. Choose any film or topic pertaining to either or both Olivia or Errol. Up to TWO Duplicates of their films is allowed, so if you see that only one blogger is writing about, say, The Adventures of Robin Hood, you are free to write about it also. Also, feel free to write more than one post! There's a lot of films and interesting topics between these two stars!

2. Once you have made your selection(s), leave a comment below or over on Crystal's blog. Please be sure to include the name and link to your blog (so I don't have to look it up). I'd also appreciate it if you choose a film to please include the year of it's release.

3. Lastly, grab a banner and spread the word! We had over 40 participants last year. Let's see if we can top it in honor of these two iconic and beloved stars!

  1. Oh my god. If I hadn't been at work when I saw this, I would have squealed. FINALLY AN ERROL FLYNN BLOGATHON. I may be a tad excited...

    I would love to write about Cry Wolf (1947). I might even come up with a second topic if I think I can swing it. This is going to be so great!

    1. Love that movie!! I figured since no one else has done one I'd have to step up ;)
