May I write a piece on Lady From Shanghai? If that’s already nabbed, my 2nd choice would be Cover Girl. Just lemme know- thanks so much!
Hi Kellee, Oops, As it turns out Lady from Shanghai is taken, but there are no rules regarding duplicates in this blogathon. So if you’d still like to do Lady from Shanghai that is a-okay OR if you’d prefer to switch to Cover Girl that is fine too. Just let me know which way you’d prefer to go so that I can add you to the schedule! THANKS!
Kellee, sorry for any confusion, but it looks like you’re good to go with Lady from Shanghai… I’ll add it to the list… Thanks!
Would GILDA or YOU WERE NEVER LOVELIER be okay?
Hi Paula, either would be fine, but I’m thinking since Aurora opted for Gilda already, would you mind doing You Were Never Lovelier? I’ll put that down for now, but let me know if that’s a-okay with you.
Yes, YOU WERE NEVER LOVELIER is great. Thanks.
I’d love to grab PAL JOEY or COVER GIRL, if those haven’t been claimed elsewhere!
Oh Wonderful!!! Neither have been claimed yet… I’ll put you down for your first choice Pal Joey. If that’s not okay, just let me know. Thanks 🙂
Hi Emily, Just wondering if you think you’ll be able to post by tomorrow night? If not, perhaps sometime over the weekend?
May I do TONIGHT AND EVERY NIGHT?
Oh, that would be most perfect! Thanks! I’ll add you to the list 🙂
Hi Clayton, Just wondering if you think you’ll be able to post by tomorrow night? If not, perhaps some time over the weekend?
Thanks! October is packed with fun blogathons!
Oh I know! It’s wonderful, isn’t it!
I love that you’re doing The Strawberry Blonde! 😀
I’d like to do either Gilda or You Were Never Lovelier. Could I give you my final decision later this week?
Absolutely! Thanks so much for entering 🙂
Hi! I’d like to do You Were Never Lovelier. Ill post it on my blog, [This] Girl Friday, later this week.
Wonderful! Thanks so much 🙂
Please may I have Cover Girl??
Perfect! Thanks so much 🙂
Thank you! Any particular October date I need to run it, or is that open?
Hi Gina, Just wondering if you’ll be able to post by tomorrow night? If not, perhaps over the weekend?
Yes! Aiming for tonight! I do apologize for the delay — had to deal with some family stuff that put me behind with everything. Thanks for your patience.
No worries at all. I do hope that everything is okay, and I thank you for submitting a post. PS: if it’s tomorrow or even Sunday, that is fine too. No pressure… when it’s done, I will promote it… I really appreciate your participation 🙂
It’s up! I e-mailed you.
Thanks so much! Just got it! Wonderful!
I’ll need to squeeze Rita into my month, Annmarie! Put me up for “Down to Earth” (1947). I’ll post it by the end of October (25th or so).
That works for me! Thanks so much for making the time to do it. I’ll add you to the list. Should be fun 🙂
Thank you! Do I need to do it on a certain date? Or is that open?
Hi Gina, any date in October would work, you would just need to alert me when you are ready to post and send me the link so that I can promote it…
Great, thanks! I already signed up for Cover Girl. Just wanted to know about the date. 🙂

I sent a twitter message. I wrote a blog post on Rita Hayworth, My Flamenco Idol. I’d love to send the link and hope I did everything correctly.

Seeing as it remains unclaimed, please could I write about You’ll Never Get Rich? It’s one I’ve been meaning to watch for a while. I might not get round to posting until later in the month if that’s ok…
Wonderful! Looking forward to it 🙂

Not sure if it’s too late, but may I enter the blogathon? I wrote a little something on Rita Hayworth’s Image. I can go back and add the banner and statement. Thanks!
Hi, so sorry I’m getting back to you so late, but I just saw your comment now. It would be WONDERFUL if you officially joined! I will grab your url right now and promote it today on twitter! Wonderful post by the way 🙂
