THE ROSALIND RUSSELL BLOGATHON IS HERE

fass

As an avid fan of Rosalind Russell, I was anxious for this blogathon to arrive. Rosalind is unfortunately extremely underrated, and does not get the recognition that she deserves. It is for this reason why I am putting her back on the radar for the next three days.

Today Rosalind would have celebrated her 112th birthday. For the occasion a prolific array of bloggers are teaming up to honor the indelible talents of this great actress, who holds a special place in my heart. A big thank you to those who have taken the time to participate. I look forward to reading your entries.

This is for you Rosalind. Happy Heavenly Birthday.

      1. Cool! I have some distinct memories of seeing the film the first time and some general ideas of my reaction but I had very little memory of the film itself. I can’t even remember if I’d seen it once or twice before.

      2. I’ve seen the film a few times, but its not one that I revisit often. I honestly think that William Holden was miscast in the film, and so were a few others. My favorite star in Picnic is Rosalind. She has the more meatier role.

        By the way, I’ve just announced another blogathon if you are interested in joining. Here is the link. https://crystalkalyana.wordpress.com/2019/06/05/announcing-the-fourth-annual-olivia-de-havilland-blogathon/

  1. Hi Crystal! I’m sorry I couldn’t participate in this blogathon. 😦 I’ve been very busy with work and I forgot about this. I’m very sorry.

    Hopefully, I’ll be able to join some of your other blogathons!

    Thanks again!

  2. Dear Crystal,

    Here is the link to my article: https://pureentertainmentpreservationsociety.wordpress.com/2019/06/09/52-code-films-week-23-no-time-for-comedy-from-1940/. I really enjoyed watching this movie! Thank you for letting me submit my entry late. It looks like your blogathon was a great success! I hope you are well. I look forward to participating in the Olivia de Havilland Blogathon. I will probably publish that article the night before the blogathon begins!

    Yours Hopefully,

    Tiffany Brannan
