The Reel Infatuation Blogathon

Reel Infatuation BannersRuth at Silver Screenings and maedez of A Small Press Life have enticed us to join one more blogathon (no more please!), this one to celebrate crushes on fictional characters.  “The Reel Infatuation Blogathon” already boasts a Criterion connection with an upcoming post on King Vidor’s Gilda (1946), a worthy cinema crush if there ever was one.

MMC! will celebrate its favourite actress of all time – Greer Garson!  We’ll promote Mervyn LeRoy’s Random Harvest (1942) for a wacky “C” and spend some time gushing over how much we love Garson in the role of Paula Ridgeway/Margaret Hanson.  Garson steps out of her typical role here (and into a rather short kilt!) with great skill, being funny and sexy without losing her inherent dignity, compassion, or sophistication.  And has Hollywood ever a better pair of voices to headline a film than Garson and Ronald Coleman?!?  Enough for now – we better get writing!

        Haha, yes I meant I’m writing about her for that blogathon.
