BLOGATHON… Welcome to Day 1 of My Darlin’ Dallasers’ Blogathon!


The long awaited start to the Darlin’ Dallasers Blogathon…


Film reviews include stars such as George Kennedy, Howard Keel and the birthday boy himself, Larry Hagman.



85 years ago today, Larry Hagman was born in Fort Worth, Texas.  He grew up to play one of the most iconic characters on television, the man everyone loved to hate, the Texan oil baron, J.R. Ewing in the primetime hit show Dallas (1978-91). In honour of Larry, who sadly died 4 years ago, I’m hosting the Darlin’ Dallasers blogathon over the next 3 days.

In this blogathon, writers were asked to write about any of the cast of the original series in relation to their work on television or in films. A final count of 22 fellow bloggers and Dallas fans have joined me in honouring Larry Hagman and his fellow Dallas cast members.  When listing these actors and actresses I’ll add the name of their characters in brackets for the die-hard Dallas fans amongst you.

Other cast members whose films will be reviewed include original cast members Linda Gray (Sue Ellen Ewing), Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing) and Barbara Bel Geddes (Miss Ellie Ewing Farlow). Supporting cast members also get a mention with reviews of films with Omri Katz (John Ross Ewing III), John Beck (Mark Graison) and Lou Diamond Philips (a sidewalk thug).

A wide spectrum of films has been discussed including musicals with Audrey Landers (Afton Cooper) and pirate films with Ian McShane (Don Lockwood). Reviews can be found by clicking the name of the film, all actresses’ and actors’ photographs from the Dallas opening credits were sourced from the Ultimate Dallas website.

A wee note to the blogathoners, I will be adding a link to your review here as you send it to me..and a big huge thanks to those of you who have sent me your review already xx
