This Monday: CMBA Hitchcock Blogathon!

The Classic Movie Blog Association‘s Hitchcock Blogathon is coming up on Monday, and I am positively oozing with excitement. There are twenty participating blogs, making it the biggest CMBA blogathon yet, as well as the very first blogathon in which my baby blog will have taken part. Basically, when you log onto the CMBA site on Monday – or open up your RSS reader, if you’re as addicted to classic movie blogs as I am – you’ll see a long list of posts from a wide variety of bloggers sharing their thoughts and impressions of Alfred Hitchcock and his films, both the classics and the obscure treasures. Everyone is committed to at least one post, but I know some are planning more; I hear Rachel over at MacGuffin Movies will be marathoning new reviews of Hitchcock films all day. As for me, I’ll be keeping it simple yet (hopefully) intriguing with a review of 1935’s The 39 Steps, one of Hitchcock’s most well-known British films but still considered obscure to most casual movie-watchers. In fact, it’s one I probably would’ve taken a long time to get around to seeing if it hadn’t been for this serendipitous blogathon. Come back on Monday to hear what I thought of the film, and don’t forget to check out the other participating blogs for what are sure to be some excellent reviews and musings on everyone’s favorite Master of Suspense.
