Gather ’round, everyone! “The Claude Rains Blogathon” is here at last! Do not be alarmed. This is merely “the customary round-up of refugees, liberals, and, of course, a beautiful young girl for Monsieur Renault, the prefect of police.” Over the next three days we will be celebrating this great star of the cinema as the 10th brings his 130th birthday! Happy birthday, Mr. Rains! May your wonderful films continue to inspire and entertain for many more years.
