Announcing the Claudette Colbert “Star Of The Month (June 2021)” Blogathon

Well, since I’m trying to do things differently than I have been for my “Star Of The Month” blogathons so far, I’ll take this opportunity to remind everybody that next month’s star is actress Claudette Colbert, and offer everyone the chance to sign up!

My Own Feelings On Claudette Colbert

My own introduction to actress Claudette Colbert was through her 1948 film The Egg And I. Truth be told, though, she didn’t make much of an impression on me (between that film and Boom Town and anything else I might have seen around that time). That changed over the last few years, after seeing her in It Happened One Night and Tomorrow Is Forever (and one or two others I haven’t gotten around to reviewing yet). I will admit, she’s still far from being a favorite actress, but her presence in a movie is quickly becoming an asset. I’m looking forward (as I write this) to seeing the four films I currently have planned of hers (which will all be new to me). I hope I will enjoy them (and, in the process, hope I will bring to light films that others may want to see). And, by that same token, I hope others will join in, whether they be films new or old, that we can all find something new to try out!

Upcoming Schedule For 2021 (Beyond June):

July – star: James Cagney

August – star: Barbara Stanwyck

September – genre: Musicals

October – nothing

November – star: Humphrey Bogart

December (1-24) – genre: Christmas films

December (25-31) – nothing

Roster For The Claudette Colbert “Star Of The Month (June 2021)” Blogathon

Since this is obviously for next month’s blogathon on Claudette Colbert, then that’s all you need to worry about signing up for. As always, here are the rules that we are working with.

  1. At this point, I am not putting any restrictions on topics related to the various stars, whether it be any of their films, or biographies, lists of favorites, etc.
  2. These celebrations are intended as tributes to these stars, so I would ask that any participating posts be respectful of the stars themselves. Obviously, if you don’t care for that specific star, that would probably not be a good month to join in.
  3. I’m requesting that all posts would be new material, and not any previously published ones.
  4. As previously indicated, these celebrations of the stars and genres will last a whole month each, so you will have that whole month to work with. I myself will be publishing about four or five posts per month (depending on the number of Sundays and whether there are any recent disc releases that would fit the bill), so you can decide how many you want to do (within reason).
  5. If you are interested in joining, I would certainly suggest you either comment on this post, email me at, or, for the Facebook savvy, contact me at my FB page. And feel free to use the banner at the top of this post (I’m still unsure of how much space I will have to work with over time on pictures, so for now I am doing one each).

  1. I’m glad to see that Claudette is finally being honored with a blogathon. She more than deserves it. I would love to write about “Imitation Of Life” ( 1934 ), if that’s okay?
