After years of being unfairly dismissed due to the child abuse allegations that have largely surfaced since the initial publication of Mommie Dearest in 1978, Joan Crawford is finally being honored during the course of the next three days, for the purpose of my blogathon which commences today.

For years, I have been an ardent supporter of Joan Crawford, so when the idea of hosting a blogathon dedicated to the great actress was proposed to me, I was automatically enthused, and was anxious to announce the event.

I was even more impatient waiting for the blogathon to commence, but now after two months of waiting, it’s now here. So without further ado, I look forward to reading all the entries about the unsurpassable Joan Crawford, whose inimitable talents and achievements continue to leave an indelible mark on motion picture history.


Below is the roster of entries that will get updated daily as each post comes in. This is for you Joan.
