Ladies and gentlemen, it’s here!
What is here, you ask? I can’t tell you; it’s a mystery!
I won’t keep you in suspense; the big secret is that The Mystery Character Blogathon has arrived here at PEPS! We decided to host May’s blogathon during Memorial Day weekend, since the long weekend affords some people more time. The theme really has nothing to do with the holiday, but it seemed like good timing anyway!
This blogathon is about characters who are discussed but never seen. In some cases, we hear the character’s voice, as in A Letter to Three Wives (1949), which is narrated by the unseen Addie Ross. In other cases, the character dies before the movie begins but remains a prominent presence in the story, as in the case of the title character in Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca (1940).
What mystery characters did our fellow bloggers decide to feature and perhaps hypothetically reveal? Keep checking back throughout the long weekend to see (or not see)!
