  16. Thanks for hosting this blogathon, a great idea in honor of a great actor. My favorite role of his is probably in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, one of my favorite movies as a kid.

    Speaking of blogathons, you are cordially invited to join the Third Annual Buster Keaton Blogathon, which I’m hosting February 19-21, 2017 on Silent-ology. 2017 is an important year since it will mark 100 years since Buster first entered “moving pictures”–it’s going to be a real celebration!!

    Let me know if you’d like to join in, would love to have you!

  17. Hi. Would love you to join my new blogathon, it’s the Here’s Jack Blogathon, to celebrate Jack Nicholson’s 80th Birthday 22 April 2017.
