Wonderful Kate Gabrielle gave me the Friendly Blogger Award from her new flapper doodle blog. She's so sweet.
I have no idea whether the award means that I'm a friendly blogger, or if my blog is friendly (?), but I'm very grateful! I put my guess on the first alternative, since I don't know how "blog friendly" Betty Page striptease videos and photos of a dead Thelma Todd is...
Anyway - it's time for me to deal the award to friendly bloggers! And the first award goes to... Kate Gabrielle for her original blog Silents and Talkies! That, my dear friends, is a friendly blog! Always interesting, funny and surprising. Check it out if you haven't!
Other blog winners are:
Manuel at Coisas do arco da velha - You'll never know what's up next on his frequently updated blog! Is it classic film stars? Is it surrealistic paintings? Campy film clips or erotic art?
The Classic Maiden - A devoted classic film nerd who updates us of every single film she sees, whether it's pre-code films or Japanese anime. And she has an on-going project of viewing almost all of Kay Francis' films.
Alexis at Ingrid Bergman Life and Films - How could one not love a blog dedicated to everything about and around the Swedish wonder Ingrid Bergman? And when it's done in such an honourable and yet easily accessible way.
Robby Cress at Dear Old Hollywood - It's always fascinating to read about his escapades around and among the buildings of the golden age of Hollywood. Robby writes his posts in a way that makes you feel welcome and absorbed.
C. K. Dexter Haven at Hollywood Dreamland - I always give him an award, and he deserves them all! If you love the gone days of Hollywood, check out this popular blog.
An last, but not at all least: Jonas at All Talking! All Singing! All Dancing! - Jonas specializes in his passion of the early talkie era of Hollywood. Always fascinating reading, and as I said to him a couple of days ago: What lacks in frequency of his blog posts is well covered with quality and passion. This is by far one of my favourite blogs!
I tried to deal the award to blogs that Kate didn't already give it to, and I hope that no one is left crying in despair! If so, maybe he/she/it will be happy by a colorized photo of Gary-the-divine-Cooper and Jean Arthur I made today. Peace out!
