And now for Day Two of the Dynamic Duos in Classic Blogathon…
The time has come to celebrate famous movie pairings of yesteryear for the Dynamic Duos in Classic Film blogathon. I am thrilled to host the second of two days of entries, preceded by the fabulous Aurora at Once Upon a Screen (@CitizenScreen) who posted on Day One yesterday.
If you need a refresher on the nuts and bolts of the blogathon visit the announcement post here. Otherwise I will waste no time getting to the heart of the matter, the entries that will entertain, enthrall and enchant. On behalf of Aurora and myself, I want to thank all of the bloggers who have submitted entires to this event. Learning from you is the best part of hosting and we’re excited to have 8 dynamic duo-themed DVDs to raffle off at the end of the weekend to entrants chosen at random. Many thanks to Turner Classic Movies and Kino Lorber for graciously offering these DVDs.
And…here are the Day Two entries for your pleasure…
