Places! The Third Annual Claude Rains Blogathon is Here!

Take Your Seats, Ladies and Gentlemen! The Third Annual Claude Rains Blogathon is beginning today!

Claude Rains - Turner Classic Movies

In honor of Claude Rains’s 131st birthday, which would have been November 10, we are honoring this great actor’s talent for three days, November 9-11. This is our third year celebrating one of Hollywood’s few A-list supporting actors, who was as famous for his thousand faces as for his velvety voice.

Claude Rains, World War I.

As in the first year we hosted this blogathon, one of the dates happens to be Veterans’ Day, formerly known as Armistice Day because it is the anniversary of the end of World War I. This is a convenient coincidence, since Claude Rains was a World War I veteran. His distinct voice and droopy eye were characteristics he acquired from a gas attack during his service. Thus, this is also a good opportunity to honor one of the many classic actors who risked his life during the Great War.
