The “…And Scene!” Blogathon Is Here! Time to Relive Some Favorite Movie Moments
Breathes there a classic movie lover who has never burst forth with those immortal words…
“I LOVE THIS PART!!”
Well, read on, my kindred spirits!
The “…And Scene!” Blogathon has arrived!!
Twenty-five fabulous bloggers and I go into passionate detail about our favorite classic film scenes—the ones we replay over and over, so the DVD (or VHS tape—c’mon, some of us still have them!) has a little groove in it. The ones we catch ourselves mouthing the words to. The ones where our loved ones tiptoe out of the room because they know we’re going to get all weepy or crazy or giddy again. Yeah. Those scenes…
And what a great assortment of movies, spanning five decades from the silents to the psychodelic ’60s, crossing two continents, and celebrating just about every genre. As articles are posted, I’ll be adding the live links to the roster below. So please join us in reliving these wonderful moments. And a humongous thank you to every writer who made a scene!
