Announcing the “getTV Rita Hayworth Blogathon”

CMH is Happy to Announce the getTV Rita Hayworth Blogathon

“All I wanted was just what everybody else wants, you know, to be loved.”
-Rita Hayworth

In celebration of our classic movie LOVE for the beautiful and talented Rita Hayworth, CMH is happy to announce the getTV Rita Hayworth Blogathon! During the entire month of October, we invite fellow fans and bloggers to join in the fun and share a post honoring the lovely Ms. Hayworth — her life, her work or one of her films. And, no worries, duplicate subjects are a-okay!

As a special thank you to our Blogathon Entrants, all entrants with a continental US address will be automatically entered into a random drawing for a Rita Hayworth “Pal Joey” DVD provided to Classic Movie Hub by getTV.

    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!

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      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!

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      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!

  2. Paula says:


  3. I’d love to grab PAL JOEY or COVER GIRL, if those haven’t been claimed elsewhere!

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      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 🙂

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Hi Emily, Just wondering if you think you’ll be able to post by tomorrow night? If not, perhaps sometime over the weekend?


  5. Thanks! October is packed with fun blogathons!

    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?

    Please may I have Cover Girl??

  8. says:

    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).

  9. Gina says:

    Thank you! Do I need to do it on a certain date? Or is that open?

    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…
    Thank you!
