WHAT A CHARACTER! Blogathon Schedule

With as much excitement as Steve Martin in THE JERK (1979) with the arrival of new phone books, I enthusiastically offer you the 2013 WHAT A CHARACTER! Blogathon schedule!! Back by popular demand, the zany classic-film-loving and blogging trio of Aurora (aka @citizenscreen) of Once Upon A Screen, Paula (aka @Paula_Guthat) of Paula’s Cinema Club and Kellee (aka @IrishJayhawk66) of Outspoken & Freckled (moi!) bring you the 2013 installment of WHAT A CHARACTER! Blogathon.
