Announcing the Barbara Stanwyck “Star Of The Month (August 2021)” Blogathon

As we keep things going, I’m just here to remind everybody that, as my schedule has been indicating, next month’s Star will be none other than actress Barbara Stanwyck! So, if you want to join in on the month-long celebration, be sure to sign up on this post!

My Own Feelings On Barbara Stanwyck

For me, I was more or less introduced to Barbara Stanwyck via her holiday classic Christmas In Connecticut (well, it was either that or Remember The Night). While I liked both films, neither of them was necessarily enough to start me looking into more of her films. That would happen more or less as a byproduct of seeing different movies getting a Blu-ray release in the time since I upgraded to the format. Since then, I have seen several more of her films. While my feelings on some of those films themselves have been mixed, I’ve been impressed with her performances. So, I’m looking forward to digging into her filmography a bit more through this blogathon, both through the (mostly new-to-me) movies I will be reviewing, as well as what other films anybody else decides to talk about! So, I hope that I will indeed be joined by others in this endeavor!

Upcoming Schedule For 2021 (Beyond August):

September – genre: Musicals

October – nothing

November – star: Humphrey Bogart

December (1-24) – genre: Christmas films

December (25-31) – nothing

Roster For The Barbara Stanwyck “Star Of The Month (August 2021)” Blogathon

Since this is obviously for next month’s blogathon on Barbara Stanwyck, 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 astairefan7@gmail.com, or, for the Facebook savvy, contact me at my FB page. And feel free to use the banners I have put together (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).
