“Free at last!”

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to announce our next blogathon, The Fredric March Blogathon! Throughout 2021, we have been hosting one blogathon per month. At the beginning of the year, we planned to honor classic actor Fredric March in the month of his birth, August. Thus, we will finish the month with a celebration of his magnificent career.

On August 31, 2021, Fredric March would have been 124 years old! In honor of this occasion, we are hosting our blogathon on August 29-31. Claude Rains is the only other individual actor whom we have honored with a blogathon. We’re now proud to add the two-time Oscar winner to our list of blogathon topics, if a person can be a topic. If this blogathon is successful, we may make it an annual event!

  7. Hey there, unfortunately I won’t be able to participate, though I am undoubtedly an appreciator of Fredric March. I just wrapped up a ridiculously busy summer and need some chill time. I plan on participating next time, though, for sure!
