The "Favorite Stars in B Movies" Blogathon: Day 2

Happy April Fools’ Day, and welcome to Day 2 of the blogathon! Today is the day for practical jokes, but don’t worry, we won’t bait you with a tantalizing link to a notable B movie only to redirect you to an online discussion of microscopic fungi instead (apologies to any mycologists who may be reading this).

Here at Films From Beyond we’re serious about having fun with B movies, and the purpose of the blogathon is to showcase the talents of bloggers who share that philosophy.

Day 1 of the blogathon featured a plethora of actors and actresses in a variety of genre roles, from mind control victims (Ian Ogilvy), to post-apocalyptic death-racers (Sylvester Stallone), to mad scientists (Joseph Cotten), to accused murderers (John Garfield), to family men battling juvenile delinquents (Alan Ladd), to cops and star witnesses running from the mob (Charles McGraw and Marie Windsor), to “ham” actors just being themselves (John Carradine). (See also the great posts from Day 3!)

Day 2 promises to be just as diverse and fun-filled, so on with the show!

Dustin at Horror and Sons profiles the stars you should know, the ones you might know, and others you probably don't know in the alien invader film Without Warning (1980).

Terence at A Shroud of Thoughts delves into the backstory of how Rory Calhoun ended up making Farmer Vincent's Fritters in Motel Hell (1980).
