UPDATE: Day 2 of the blogathon has begun over at Movies Silently! Be sure to drop in and see all the other posts we have lined up for you. p.s. Still have a post that isn’t listed yet? Just send me the link and I’ll add your article to the list below.
It has arrived! Welcome, readers and bloggers, to the World War I in Classic Film Blogathon, co-hosted by me and Movies Silently.
This event is in honor of one of most important centenaries of our lifetimes–100 years since the Great War began. There’s a whole range of War-related films to read about here today, and there will be more great posts over at Movies Silently tomorrow.
If you’re part of the blogathon and are scheduled for today, send me the link to your post whenever it’s ready (I’m eager to see it!). Just leave me a comment right on this post, or you can contact me here. Scheduled for Sunday at Movies Silently? Then sit back and relax, because you still have a whole day to perfect your writing. (The full roster is here.)
Enjoy all the great reading, and maybe take a little time this weekend to remember all those who gave their lives “Over There.”

Fantastic line-up! Congratulations on the turn-out. Looking forward to all the posts. 🙂
Once Upon a Screen
So am I–it’s a great selection already!
What a diverse and exciting line-up, Congratulations! Here’s mine on Yankee Doodle Dandy, James Cagney and George M. Cohan http://imaginemdd.blogspot.com/2014/09/james-cagney-yankee-doodle-dandy-where.html
Awesome, thanks! Yankee Doodle Dandy is one of my favorites.
Thanks Doughboys is excellent and recently restored and Wings was the first oscar winner. so nice to see others have interest in these films….a recent one but with accurate history of the era is Flyboys about early airplanes. ENJOY…..and let’s bring some of that elegance back to the 21st century with us. a pocket square or a hat, something……a velvet coat or an elegant pair of shoes! would love to discuss Paths of Glory or any of the silents with group.
Personally, I think men’s pocket watches and vests need to officially come back in style. 😉 Glad you’re enjoying the posts.
