Sinatra blogathon update

Thanks so much to everyone who has signed up to take part in the Sinatra Centennial Blogathon, which I’m hosting jointly with Emily over at The Vintage Cameo – and thanks so much again to Emily for co-hosting and creating all our fabulous banners. :)

We’ve had a great response and are looking forward to the 100th birthday fun from December 10 to 13, but this is just an update to say that there are still quite a lot of Frank’s films available for any bloggers who haven’t yet joined the party!

Here’s a list of those which are still available – but, of course, you don’t just have to write about a specific film he starred in.

Other themes, such as Sinatra events in your area, his work with other stars and his theme songs offer loads of possibilities. We’re looking for no exact duplicates, but he had such a packed career, that shouldn’t be a problem! If you’re tempted by a theme posting, just check the original blogathon announcement to see whether your chosen theme is still available.

So here’s a list of films still to be claimed… I haven’t included a few which are cameos. A few of these films are being covered in postings about Frank and Gene Kelly and Frank and Bing Crosby, but don’t have whole postings to themselves as yet!

PS, as more films are hopefully taken I’ll remove them from the list here – Von Ryan’s Express and High Society have just been claimed. :) And now Ocean’s 11 has gone too!
