Great! Thanks, Angela! So glad to have you. What I’ll probably do is have a free-for-all day, maybe the 24th where everyone can post on their respective blogs and I’ll link here. Also, I will set up a Tumblr account for photo submissions and the like for the whole event. The contributors listed above are writing about specific films to make sure that we have various aspects of his career covered. Their essays will be posted here throughout the 2 weeks (and crossposted to their various blogs).

Super excited!

I’m pretty new to classic film blogging, but would love to participate in March-in-March. He was such a good actor & wasn’t afraid to look, uh, inelegant if the role called for it (e.g. “Inherit the Wind”).

Love to have you! Like I said in my comment to Angela, I’m working on the schedule for the current list of contributors and their selected topics. Once I have that done (probably by the end of the weekend) I will schedule a free-for-all day where anyone and everyone can write about Fredric March.

Stay tuned–I’ll be posting more information in the next couple days. Are you by any chance on Twitter? If so, please follow me! @biscuitkitten

Thanks for your interest!

So excited :) I have my “One Foot and Heaven” DVD all ready to watch. I love the title March-in-March too. So clever!

Ready and set to watch “I Married a Bitch” … I mean, “I Married a WITCH” … for my post! :D

HA! I cannot WAIT to see what you write on this one. All accounts say that Lake was a holy terror to work with, but that does not come across with March’s performance. That’s proof of an excellent actor. LOL!

It’ll be the Maine Event of March. The Norman Maine event. Thanks for the invite to be a part of it. By the way, last night I watched Fredric March in the original “A Star Is Born.”

The Maine Event. LOVE IT! I know I’ve said it before, but I’m so happy to have you along for this. We first “met” each other over our common love and appreciation of March.

Hey Jill, I’d love to participate. Are you looking for new pieces or will you also accept a re-post of an older one?

Tony,

Fantastic! I’d love to have you on board for the event! You are more than welcome to use an existing piece you’ve written in the past. Matter of fact, I encourage it! I have a couple of contributors doing exactly that. Don’t let those essays go to waste!

I’ll post more details in the next few days. Like I said in earlier comments, I will get my existing contributors scheduled and then I will have an open day for everyone. When I get that posted, I’ll make sure to let everyone know via Twitter.

Thanks for joining in!

Hi Jill,

This sounds great! Love March in so many films. I’d love to participate in your free-for-all day, I could either write about a new-to-me March film or repost one of my past reviews. Looking forward to discovering more March films via your contributors.

Best wishes,
Laura

Hi, Jill! I run a classic movie blog in Portuguese, but it is easily translated into English by a button in the top. I’d love to write comparing March’s and Mason’s performances in their respective versions of A Star is Born. Just to say, the 1937 version of this film is my favorite movie of all!
Greetings,
