It's a Wrap! : Day 3 of the "Favorite Stars in B Movies" Blogathon

Blogathon banner - Barbara Stanwyck and Robert Taylor in The Night Walker (1964)

All good things must come to an end, but this first-ever blogathon at Films From Beyond has been such a wonderful experience that I will definitely bring it back next year!

Many thanks to the talented bloggers who have highlighted such an entertaining mix of performers and films. They creatively illustrate how B movies have jump started, nurtured and extended so many acting careers over the decades.

If you’re a blogger and need more time for your post, I will be happy to add it to this page when you’re ready. Contact me by email, brschuck66@yahoo.com; Twitter, @brschuck66; or use the comments below.

If you haven’t already, check out the excellent contributions from the previous two days:

And now for the final act…

John at tales from the freakboy zone believes that some things are better left unknown, like when Rock Hudson discovers how to make Barbara Carrera from a test tube in Embryo (1976).

    1. Thanks so much! Sorry for the delay, but you're live now on the page!

  2. Thanks so much for hosting, Brian! I should have plenty of time to get to Gene Kelly in "Christmas Holiday" for next year, don't you think?!

    1. Michael, thanks so much for participating! Joseph Cotten in Island of the Fishmen was a great choice, and I'm looking forward to something similarly intriguing next year.
