BLOGATHON… Welcome to Day 1 of the Lovely Lee Grant blogathon

 

Tune in here for the next four days for the Lovely Lee Grant Blogathon…

 

There’s still plenty of time to join Chris at Angelman’s Place and I celebrate all things Lee Grant.

 

 

 

I was very happy when the lovely and talented Chris from Angelman’s Place agreed to join me in celebrating the career of the wonderful actress Lee Grant. I was just as happy with the most heartfelt response from the film bloggers’ community, who have joined us in our first joint blogathon.

Over the next few days join me here – or on Chris’ blog HERE – to access some wonderful writing in this actress’ honour. If you are just reading on this now, and you are keen to add a post not to worry.

Simply check out the rules HERE and the who is doing what page HERE.  Then send Chris and me a message first with your suggestion and once we’ve oked it you are officially in and then add a blogathon banner. These banners are on the Blogathon Announcement page so spread the word by adding one to your post.

Now let us entertain you with some posts from this illustrious actress who has been lighting up our screens since her debut in Detective Story (1951) and more recently in … A Father… A Son… Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2005) with performances in front of the camera.

Remember we will also be accepting podcasts on her work, and posts on her life behind the scenes as a director and writer. All I ask is that you write respectful posts about this inspiring actress.

Do pop back over the next few days to read more… and check in regularly as I will be adding posts as I get them. Just click on that film title to reach the review.

Now on with the show…

  1. Hi Gill
    Unfortunately, I am working through a family emergency; however, I still hope to finish my post in time to add to the Blogathon for Lee Grant. Maybe on the third day?….I hope.
    If I do or Don’t, I look forward to reading everyone’s post. Thank you for hosting 😊

              1. I have and laughed through out the movie…Kate Mckinnon nearly stole the movie with her comedy antics. The action scenes were extra good for a comedy…definitely is Bond Worthy. Sam claims he has no comedic presence but he really does. Yes, it was a bit cheesy but a lot of fun. Not the best comedies but one of the favorites. Most Americans don’t know Sam. But, the “Tom Brady with a British accent” has made a splash. His new movie “Bloodshot” should be a huge hit.
                So, happy for Sam😊
