This time last year I was celebrating the successful run of my first ever blogathon that I hosted, and that was the Barrymore Trilogy Blogathon. Now we’re back in August again, and I can hardly believe that it’s been a year since the auspicious event took place.
I am thrilled that this is going to be an annual event. Last year I received innumerable spectacular entries that covered a wide array of topics relating to all members of the Barrymore family, and I’m sure that this year will bring the same.
I will be updating this page daily as I receive each entry. A big thank you to all participants who registered for the blogathon. I look forward to reading all your entries, and a very happy 136th Birthday to Ethel Barrymore. This is for you Ethel.

Midnight up at the Stop Button. Pretty sure your Barrymore blogathons get me watching the best movies 🙂
Thanks Andrew. This is one of my favorite movies. Look forward to reading this.
My post on Lionel’s films in which he co-starred with child actors (especially those he was fond of!)
Thanks so much for participating. I look forward to reading your post.
My post on John Barrymore and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.’s, relationship is here. As well as a brief excerpt on “Women Love Diamonds” with Lionel Barrymore. I had intended to write more on that but my research came up too short this time around unfortunately. Thanks for hosting, I am looking forward to reading the entries!
Thanks Elizabeth. That’s not a problem. I’ve never seen that film, but I look forward to reading your entry.

Hola. I’ve posted my Ethel Barrymore review tonight, of Deadline – USA (1952), but my host is down right now so I can’t ftp up my images. The text is there; the images will follow tomorrow. Apologies for that!
Hi Hal. Thanks for participating in the blogathon. I look forward to reading this post, and receiving your two other articles.
And the host issue is resolved and images are up.

What a month this has been!! Now for a much-needed break from blogathons 🙂
Thanks. My all time favorite movie. I really look forward to reading this. Yes I agree. There have been a lot of blogathons this month. I haven’t been able to keep up with them. I will be announcing one soon, but that won’t be until at least October.

After Ethel on Monday and John on Tuesday, here’s Lionel on Wednesday, in the melodramatic pre-code late propaganda piece, The Yellow Ticket (1931):
Thanks for letting me take part in another of your blogathons. It’s been fun, as always. Please let me know when you decide to run another.
Thanks so much for you triple duty for the blogathon. I look to reading your three entries. I will be announcing another blogathon within the next few days, so I will keep you posted.
It’s a bit late and a bit briefer than my usual blogathon posts because I’ve not been feeling so great this week, but here’s my post for The Stranger’s Return on Finding Franchot: https://franchottone.blogspot.com/2016/08/the-strangers-return-1933.html
Thanks. No problems about being a little late. I haven’t published my article as yet. I’ve always wanted to see this film. Look forward to reading your post. Thanks for contributing.
Thanks! I look forward to reading all of these posts! 🙂
Hi Crystal! Here is my entry for “Dinner at Eight.” I apologize for the delay. It’s been quite hectic lately.
Thanks for hosting, and here’s to a third Barrymore Trilogy Blogathon. 🙂
Hi Catia. Thanks so much for joining in. No problems about being late. I still haven’t published my post, and I think another participant was submitting theirs today.
Here’s my review of The Spiral Staircase:
I apologize for being late. I had a senior moment with the dates.
Thanks Amanda. No problems.
Sorry Crystal, I’d forgotten the dates for this blogathon – will get on and do my piece and will be a late addition!
No problems Judy. I’m still working on my article, and there is somebody else still working on theirs. Looking forward to your post.
I’ve posted it, finally! Apologies again for the delay.
Thanks Judy. No problems. Looking forward to reading it.
