Onstage, everybody! The curtain has risen on the “Claude Rains Blogathon!”

Ladies and gentleman, I am happy to announce that the Claude Rains Blogathon has now begun. From now through the 11th, we will be celebrating the 129th birthday of one of the greatest actors of all time! Our blogathon aptly coincides with Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, thus honoring Claude Rains as a World War I hero. While serving for his home country, England, he was involved in a gas attack, which caused irrevocable damage to his eyes and vocal chords. Thus, for the next three days we will be celebrating and honoring not only a movie star, but a true hero.

Before I show the roster of articles submitted so far, I would like to thank all the kind people who have agreed to join us in honoring this truly great man.

To see the rules of the blogathon or get a banner for your article, see the announcement.

    • Dear Eva,

      Thank you so much! We’re so glad that you were able to participate. You wrote that article very quickly. Good for you! It’s an excellent article; you made some good points about Claude Rains as Prince John. It was very interesting to read about your early experiences with “The Adventures of Robin Hood.” As you aptly pointed out, Claude Rains certainly could create diverse characters brilliantly.

      We added your article to the roster. Thank you so much for participating in this blogathon!

      Yours Hopefully,

      Tiffany Brannan
