BLOGATHON… Announcing the Lovely Lee Grant Blogathon


In the first of my blogathons devoted to an actress…


This honour goes to the Lovely Lee Grant star of stage and screen (and actress Dinah Manoff’s mum).


TCM CFF Tribute Lee Grant, PJ Neely


As you know I do love a good guilty pleasure, especially a disaster movie. And it was while rewatching The Swarm (1978) and Airport 77 (1977), I noticed this Oscar Winning and much award-nominated Actress, the lovely Lee Grant.

In the latter, I loved her delightful performance as the plane hit the murky depths of the Bermuda Triangle. Her on-screen husband played by the wonderful Christopher Lee conveniently turned out to be a diver. Simultaneously, she was having an affair with Buck Rogers Gil Gerard.  The rest is fun and pure hokum, but love at least one of you to review this fab movie.

Then to my joy, I discovered her also in Damien: Omen II (1978) with William Holden and of course, Damien aka the seed of the Devil in this wonderful fun horror. It was around then I asked Chris from Angelman’s Place if he wanted to join me in this tribute to this wonderful actress.

Chris said yes, so… I’m now officially inviting you to the Lovely Lee Grant Blogathon which will be held from the 20th to 23rd of August 2018, with the final day for any lateRcomers due to time differences, illness or just wanting to be fashionably late (and a wee wrap up..).

You are welcome to review her work as an author, actress or director.

  1. She was marvelous in her small role, in ‘In the Heat of the Night’ (1967), wasn’t she? Of course, it’s an out and out Sidney Poitier film.
    I’ll have to get back to you, on what I’d like to do, for this Blogathon.

  2. Oooh, nice! If I can swing it, I’d love to contribute a post on her performance in Charlie Chan and the Curse of the Dragon Queen!

    If and when I write it, do I just share it here on your blog, in the comments?

  3. Hello, first, I need to apologize. I was not able to get a new review of WHEN YOU COMING BACK RED RYDER completed for the blogathon due to an untimely death in the family. However, it’s OK with you, I’d still like to participate and will just republish a review of a Made for TV movie starring Lee Grant and James Franciscus called NIGHT SLAVES.
