First, there was “Carole-tennial(+3)!” for Carole Lombard on October 2011, then there was “The Great Silent Recasting” last November. Now “Carole & Co.” is returning to the blogathon business, this time using a topic that’s considerably more generalized than either of the previous events. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you (through the help of Carole and Fred MacMurray)…

“The Romantic Comedy Blogathon,” set for May 1-4, 2014 (two weeks after Easter and in the midst of spring).

A check of search engines for movie blogathons revealed none had been done on this topic — comedies, yes, but they tended to be more along the lines of Charlie Chaplin, the Marx Brothers and Laurel and Hardy. Great comedians to be sure, but the genre of romantic comedies tended to get lost in the shuffle. So we’re taking the initiative, looking for anything related to romantic (or screwball) comedy, from silent days to recent stuff.

As usual for such events, propose a topic and a day you wish to publish it, then get back to me. And to give you some inspiration, not only can you copy and resize the banner above, but here are several more banners you can do the same thing with:

More information on the blogathon (not to mention more banners) will be available soon. Hope this premise gets you to thinking…

  1. OH! Love this topic and would love to be a part of the event. So many greats to choose from, but I’ll go with the first one that popped into me head if that’s OK – MY MAN GODFREY. Let me know if that works.
