And just in case you missed my wee announcement,  I’ve decided to hold this blogathon as a yearly tribute to this actor. So do come and join the fun at (probably) around 14th March next year, in time for Caine’s birthday celebrations. I’ve already had some requests for films but will only be accepting choices after that big announcement next year.

But in the meantime there’s at least 3 more joint one to be held this year, with some fantastic bloggers… you can join Return to the 80s and me for The Kurt Russell Blogathon in May, CLICK HERE for details and / or Barry from Cinematic Catharsis and me for our Great Hammer Amicus Blogathon in June and CLICK HERE for details. And as for the other joint one, a wee clue for their identity, is that they feature in this post…
