Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The Luck o’ the Irish Blogathon is Here!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

The top o’ the mornin’ to you, lads and lassies! St. Patrick’s Day has finally arrived! It has brought not only leprechauns, shamrocks, and pots of gold but our blogathon dedicated to all things Irish in Hollywood, The Luck o’ the Irish Blogathon!

A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE: PHOTOS OF THE DAY: CLASSIC HOLLYWOOD ON ST. PATRICK'S  DAY
June Haver

Today through the end of this week, March 21, we are asking fellow film lovers to submit posts about their favorite actors, directors, settings, stories, themes, songs, and anything else under the sun from the Emerald Isle! Of course, we can’t forget the “story behind the story” of old Hollywood, the Code. Anyone familiar with PEPS knows that the Motion Picture Production Code and its enforcement are our specialties here. In celebrating Hibernian contributions to the silver screen, we mustn’t forget that the Code’s main author, Martin Quigley, and main enforcer, Joseph I. Breen, were both pure Irish!

Besides “the wearing of the green,” eating Irish treats like soda bread and corn beef and cabbage, and doing your favorite jigs, be sure to leave time for watching and reviewing your favorite Irish-themed movies this week! The whole month of March is Irish Heritage March, so it’s an appropriate time to appreciate the wonderful culture Irish immigrants have brought to the United States and everywhere else they have gone!

  8. Hey, Tiffany!

    My review of Paddy O’Day (1936) is up. It’s the most recent on my blog. I don’t know why I was so critical of this film in my review, but I had a blast talking about it all the same! Thanks for hosting!
