Friends! The “Singing Sweethearts Blogathon” has finally arrived!

Extra! We are thinking about hosting another blogathon around June 13, the Perfect Code Film Blogathon, and Crystal Kalyana of In the Good Old Days of Classic Hollywood has graciously agreed to co-host it with us. This blogathon would be all about movies that were made even better by the Code. I described why San Francisco is a perfect Code film in my article for this blogathon, and I wrote an article describing how the three movies with the Singing Sweethearts that Robert Z. Leonard directed are perfect Code films. If you are interested in writing about a movie made between 1934 and 1954 that followed the Code and profited by it, leave a comment! If I get enough positive response, I’ll issue an official announcement! –Tiffany Brannan
