Celebrate National Classic Movie Day with the Five Stars Blogathon!

For the third consecutive year, the Classic Film & TV Cafe will celebrate National Classic Movie Day on May 16th by hosting a blogathon. This year, we will shine the spotlight on those actors and actresses that made the Golden Days of Hollywood glitter brightly.

The Five Stars Blogathon invites bloggers to list their five favorite movie stars and explain why you love them. It's that simple.

If you want to participate, please check our blogathon guidelines. If you're good with them, leave your blog's name and web address as a comment to this post. You can also just send the information to: I will add your blog to the schedule and link to it.

If you don't have a blog, you can still participate on National Classic Movie Day by listing your five favorite stars on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, or another social media platform.

And since May 16th is all about our love of classic movies, it's a great day to introduce a friend to the wonderful films from the silents to the 1970s!
