I am excited to announce that the first Franchot Tone Blogathon is here!
Franchot Tone (1905-1968) was an Oscar-nominated actor who starred in over 60 films, 50 television productions, and 25 plays from 1927 until his death in 1968. This month marks the 2 year anniversary of Finding Franchot, this research blog dedicated to Franchot's personal and professional life.
1 year ago, I also created a fansite in his honor at www.findingfranchot.com.
Over the next few days, we will get to read different takes on Franchot Tone from a group of talented film bloggers. I am so grateful to everyone who has offered to participate and am looking forward to reading all the posts on my favorite actor!
As topics are posted, I will share here. Check back from April 21 to April 23 for different perspectives and explorations of Franchot's films, television work, and life. Thank you all for celebrating Mr. Tone with me!
