‘TILL DEATH US DO PART

Oy vey!!! He leaves the toilet seat up. She wears too much perfume. He never asks directions. She’s always late. You want his money. He wants your sister. Poison? Driven to suicide or just a bullet in the brain? Do you do it yourself? Or do you get someone to help you?  Trust is never as important as it is when murder is involved. You must kill her. You must kill him. And if you don’t do it yourself, you must trust your accomplice.  Is love a many~splendored thing?

Hell…what’s LOVE got to do with it.

I got the idea of murder listening to the episode: “WIVES IN PERIL” by the ANY LADLE’S SWEET THAT DISHES OUT SOME GRAVY podcast, hosted by two very lovely ladies: Danielle Smith and Megan McGurk. You can find them on FACEBOOK. I thought this would make a good topic bloggers could really seek their teeth into. Well they certainly did. There are many tried and true favorites here and a couple of new movies I’ve never heard of. Below is the directory of bloggers who decided to write of mayhem and murder and marriages gone wrong. Thank you for reading, and a big THANK YOU to the bloggers who make a blogathon what it is.

And now…MURDER:

HOT & BOTHERED: The Films of 1932

🙂 WELCOME. PREPARE TO BE HOT and BOTHERED. 🙂

Aurora and I have done our best to put you in that “pre~code” mood. And 1932 is just the year that can do it, too. 

HOT & BOTHERED BLOGATHON ~ ( Shanghai Express )  HOT & BOTHERED BLOGATHON ~ ( A Farewell to Arms )  HOT & BOTHERED BLOGATHON ~ ( Call Her Savage )  HOT & BOTHERED BLOGATHON ~ ( Sign of the Cross )

I am pleased as punch to have been co-hosting this event with one of the classic-film writers I truly admire. I’ve wanted to work with her since forever but her dance card was always full. Well now I have. Her blog, ONCE UPON A SCREEN, has been involved with such annual stalwart events as the ‘What A Character‘, ‘Hollywood’s Hispanic Heritage‘ and the ‘31 Days of Oscar‘ Blogathons. When I told Aurora I wanted to talk about films from 1932, a year we both think was pretty pivotal in the annals of pre~code, she came up with the title of my blogathon and agreed to co~host it with me. If you ever need an Ideas Maven or advice on blogathon etiquette folks, Aurora ( aka Citizen Screen) is your gal. 

HOT POSTER ( WHITE )

If you go to Fernando’s Corner here on my blog, you can read his take on three films from 1932: The Animal Kingdom” “Hot Saturday” and “Madame Butterfly.” 

I realize a blogathon is only as good as the writers who choose to join it. So below is the roster of all the bloggers who participated in our event this past weekend. I’m sending a big thank you to each and every one of them. We’ve got a wide, delectable variety of films from 1932 for you to luxuriate in…but don’t think you’ve got to rush. Take your slow, sweet time. I mean, that’s the only way to be Hot and Bothered, isn’t it.
