  1. Hi, Simoa! I know this is fairly short notice, but would it be possible for me to change my topic from a post about Strategic Air Command (1955) to something along the lines of Ten Things You Might Not Know About June Allyson? I was unable to access the film and I wasn’t even able to get pictures of the stadium where a portion of it was filmed (little did I know that they actually had an event going on!), but I still definitely want to contribute to this awesome blogathon! Thanks!


  2. So exciting!

    I was wondering if it would be possible to change my movie choice at this late date? I was going to review Executive Suite, but was recently watching another film called Right Cross (1950), with June Allyson, Dick Powell, and Ricardo Montalban. It’s a good role for her and it was fun to see her with Dick Powell, too, and I thought that might be a fun one to look at.

    What do you think?

      1. Great! Thank you! I will have that one up tomorrow, then. πŸ™‚

        I have to admit to being a bit jealous of her in Right Cross. She had both Dick Powell AND Ricardo Montalban in love with her. πŸ™‚
