Announcing THE FAVORITE FOURSOME BLOGATHON!

July 8 marks the fourth anniversary of this blogathon. Last year for the third anniversary, I hosted a blogathon with a theme of famous movie threesomes. So for Year # 4, I decided to do

Foursome-1

Rules for the Blogathon

For this ‘thon, I’d like you to write about one of your favorite foursomes in pop culture. They can be real — such as a musical quartet — or they can be fictional. They can come from movies, TV shows, books, or even comic books. As long as they work in a group of four, they can be written about for this blogathon.

After you choose your quartet, describe why they appeal to you so much. Take any approach. If it’s a musical group, write about why you enjoy their music. If it’s a fictional foursome, maybe their heroics have inspired you in real life.

My only limitation for this blogathon: Please, no duplicate entries. (I will regularly update the list of blogathon entries below. Check the list to make sure your choice isn’t already taken before you enter the ‘thon.) Otherwise, the sky is the limit!

How Do I Join the Blogathon?

In the “Comments” section at the bottom of this blog, please leave your name, the URL of your blog, and the movie trio you are choosing to blog about. At the end of this blog entry are banners for the ‘thon. Grab a banner, display it on your blog, and link it back to this blog.

The blogathon will take place from Friday, July 6, through Sunday, July 8, 2018. When the opening date of the blogathon arrives, leave a comment here with a link to your post, and I will display it in the list of entries (which I will continually update up to the beginning of the ‘thon, so keep checking back!).

I will not be assigning particular dates to any blog posts. As long as you get your entry in by the end of the day on July 8, I will be satisfied. (That said, the earlier the better!)

Again, be sure to leave me a comment and grab a banner, and have fun with your blog entry!

  2. Great idea for a blogathon. I’m trying to think of foursomes in classic movies. The only one that comes to mind is “The Wizard of Oz”, but I won’t choose that as I know that I won’t be able to get a post on an epic blockbuster like that done in time. I will think of something else. Is there any classic film foursomes that you can think of Steve or want covered?

  3. Jean Harlow, William Powell, Myrna Loy and Spencer Tracy in LIBELED LADY (1936). “Wonderful comedy with the four stars working at full steam.” –film critic Leonard Maltin….and I might add, four of the GREATEST stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age!

  4. Dear Steve,

    I would like to write about the four sons in “Adam Had Four Sons” from 1940. I enjoyed participating in your blogathon last year, and I look forward to this one, too. Congratulations on the fourth anniversary of your website! This is a great way to celebrate it.

    By the way, I would like to invite you to join an event I am hosting on my website, #CleanMovieMonth: https://pureentertainmentpreservationsociety.wordpress.com/2018/06/27/july-is-cleanmoviemonth. Starting on July 1st, it’s a month long celebration of Code films and clean entertainment. All you have to do is watch movies from the greater Breen Era exclusively. Then, in the beginning of August, you can write an article about your thoughts on the experiment. It shouldn’t be hard for you, since I know how much you love old movies. Even if you think you’ll be too busy to write any articles for this event, I would be very grateful if you would read my announcement and consider reposting it on your website. Your articles get so much more traffic than mine do, and I could really use the publicity.

    I hope you would agree to participate. I would be honored by your talent.

    Yours Hopefully,

    Tiffany Brannan
