I’m not sure I understand the need for two different groups.

The reason there are two groups is because this was originally an event for bloggers I had invited to contribute a couple months ago. I wanted to make sure certain areas of March’s career were covered. When I saw that others were interested in participating (in more than just on Tumblr), I decided to open 2 days up for anyone to participate.

Sorry for any confusion.

Also, those bloggers will have their essays posted here. On the free-for-all days, contributors will post to their own blogs and I will link to them here on the site.

So can I write about a movie somebody else already wrote about?

Yes.

The idea behind these two open days is to pay tribute to March. If there some duplicate topics covered, that’s ok. Everyone has a different take. With the original contributors I required them to pick different topics since a)their posts would be featured here on the site, and b) wanted to have variety.

I didn’t anticipate having much additional interest! Was I ever wrong about that! So I’m just trying to accommodate as we go along. Now–if you want to post on your blog any time during that period, go for it. And then I’ll make sure you’re linked on those two days.

Hi Jill, I would like to participate in your “March in March” on the free-for-all days. I plan to focus on March’s earlier films “The Marriage Playground” (1929) and “The Royal Family Of Broadway” (1930), both of which co-starred Mary Brian. I’m not sure each will stand as a separate post, so I plan to combine the films in one post.

Fantastic! I am so glad that someone is going to cover these two films! And I think it is great to combine them! I will make sure to add you to the post above. Just to make sure I’ve got it, do you mind giving me your blog address?

So happy to have you!!

Rachel,

So sorry I didn’t see this earlier. Somehow your comment got snagged by my spam filter!

So happy to have you on board!

Hi Jill, I seem to be a bit absent minded these days. I forgot to tell you where you can find me. I’ve included my blog address and my name is Karin. I look forward to your salute to Fredric March

Kittenbiscuits,

Just recently came across your blog and I’m enjoying catching up on some of your past posts. Love the idea of a blogathon dedicated to Fredric March, a great, but almost forgotten actor outside of the classic movie lover circle. If I am able, I would like to participate in one of the free for all days. My wife and I are expecting our first baby in March around the time of the blogathon, so who knows what my schedule will be. If I have something ready to go, I’ll email you the link. If not, I’ll still enjoy reading all the other entries as I can (possibly from a hospital room)!

Kind regards,
Robby from Dear Old Hollywood

Thank you so much for checking out my blog! So glad you’re enjoying it. I would love to have you along for the event.

I have a 16 month old daughter, so I completely understand if you can’t make it.

Hi, Jill! I’d love to be part of the blogathon. In the free-for-all day, I’m planning to compare the performances of March and James Mason in their respective versions of A Star is Born. I run the blog Critica Retro ad I must say that my favorite movie is March’s A Star is Born.
Greetings!
Le

Sorry I ended up double-posting–I was trying to make sure my comment got through and instead I end up spamming you (facepalm). Feel free to delete the latter comment. Glad to be participating.

No worries! I’ll get that take care of. I just now saw the double post.

Hello. If at all possible, could I participate in your blogathon for one of the free-for-all days? I’m a big fan of Fredric March’s, and I’d just love to participate.

Of course! Love to have you along! Just post your entry on your own blog and make sure to either comment on the post I put up on those days with a link, or send me an email!

Thanks so much for participating!

Hi de ho! Toby from Toobworld here….

I’d like to add a little something different to the free-for-all at my Inner Toob blog, which deals with the world of television as an alternate reality. Every day I have a showcase called “As Seen On TV,” which is where I’m going to feature one of Mr. March’s TV roles. (Usually in years past it’s been historical figures, but this year it’s all literary characters adapted for the Toob.)

Thanks for participating!
