Well, dear readers and writers, we’ve reached Day 3 of the Corman-verse Blogathon, and what a blogathon it’s been. Today, we have a bumper crop of posts, spanning the many decades and multiple facets of Corman’s career. I’m still catching up on reading all of the amazing posts, but rest assured, if I haven’t commented yet, I’ll get to yours soon.
I’d like to thank my wonderful co-host Gill Jacob for another terrific collaboration. As always, it seems to take ages to plan these events, and they’re over in the blink of an eye. And that’s not all, folks, because we have another blogathon in store for October. Watch for details soon!
If you planned to participate, but didn’t quite meet the deadline, don’t fret. Post a comment below, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or reach me on Twitter (@barry_cinematic). You may also contact Gill by commenting on her post, through her blog’s Contact Me page , or on Twitter (@realweegiemidge). There will be a short post-blogathon wrap-up tomorrow, and I’ll list any late entries there.
Be sure to visit the recaps from days One and Two:
