6 Films--6 Decades Blogathon for National Classic Movie Day

To celebrate National Classic Movie Day on May 16th, we are hosting the 6 Films--6 Decades Blogathon. Per its title, each participating blogger is invited to list one favorite film from each decade from the 1920s through the 1970s. (If you prefer, you could also list one film per decade from the 1930s through the 1980s). Our goal is to highlight the incredible movies that were made during cinema's classic era.

If you want to participate, please make sure your blog complies with our blogathon guidelines. Then, leave a comment below with your blog's web address or e-mail it to rick@classicfilmtvcafe.com. When you publish your article on May 16th, please include a link back to this post.

If you don't have a blog, you can still participate by listing your six films on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, or another social media platform. All we ask is that you wait until May 16th to do so.

Finally, since National Classic Movie Day 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!

    1. That should read "this year's topic." Apparently, my fingers fly so quickly over the keyboard that they don't even touch the darn thing.

  3. This past weekend I was wondering when you were going to announce this year's blogathon... and here it is!
    It won't be easy to choose a favorite from each decade, but I'll try for sure!
    Cheers!
