  1. Hi Kristen . . . I’d like to know if I may please write about Anne Baxter’s performance in “Guest In The House” for her day, August 16th? I wish it were showing on her day, but it’s still a performance I want to tell folks about. Please let me know if that’ll work with the schedule. Thank you.

  7. I’d like to participate with a review for 8/22 ~ Robert Montgomery day. I’m just finishing up with a write-up for When Ladies Meet. Would that be alright? I’ll link to your site 🙂 and send you one to mine when I’m done. Good?

    • Hi Molly, you’re definitely welcome to join the fun! Just give the rules post a look so you don’t miss out on winning our fun prizes. I’ll put you on the schedule and send a reminder to you 24 hours before your post is due.

      • That’s great to hear. Thank you. I wasn’t sure if I’d have the time but I just really wanted to write again, especially about Robert Montgomery. I will definitely look over the rules, link to your blog as well as post on social media linking to my post and your blog, characters allowing. Thank you so much for hosting this; I love SUTS – it’s just been a fabulous month for films!
