The Favorite Film and TV Homes Blogathon: Day 1

It's here! It's here! The Favorite Film and TV Homes Blogathon is here!

I'm so excited for this Blogathon and can't wait to see all the amazing homes and apartments from both Classic Movies and TV shows that are being showcased. One quick note before we get to the posts: I will be hosting Day 1 (today - Friday) and Day 3 (Sunday). My lovely co-host, Love Letters to Old Hollywood will be hosting Day 2 (Saturday) and the wrap-up post on Monday. Please comment on the appropriate blog with the link to your post when it is published.

And now, what we've all been waiting for... the houses!! Let's take a peek inside, shall we?

Charlene's (Mostly) Classic Movie Reviews starts us off with the fan favorite Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (1948).

Realweedgiemidget Reviews takes us on a tour of one of the most famous houses in film, the Von Trapp mansion in The Sound of Music (1965).

Hamlette's Soliloquy takes us to the City of Love with a look at Gene Kelly's apartment in An American in Paris (1951).

Caftan Woman comes across a lovely city flat in Dial M for Murder (1954).

Elisabeth Grace Foley takes us inside the lovely English cottage in National Velvet (1944).

Taking Up Room gives us a tour, or rather Spencer Tracy does, of his home in Father of the Bride (1950).

Thoughts All Sorts looks skyward toward the tree house in The Swiss Family Robinson (1960).

The Midnite Drive-In closes out the day with the most beautiful prison in the world in the 16 episode show The Prisoner (1967-68).

Be sure to visit Love Letters to Old Hollywood tomorrow for more great houses!!
