7 x 7 Link Award

Kim from 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die has passed the 7x7 Link Award this way.

The 7 x 7 Link Award rules are as follows:
Tell  everyone something that no one else knows about
Link to one of my posts that I personally think best fits the following categories: Most Beautiful Piece, Most Helpful Piece, Most Popular Piece, Most Controversial Piece, Most Surprisingly Successful Piece, Most Underrated Piece, and Most Pride-Worthy Piece.
Pass this award to 7 other bloggers

Tell Everyone Something No One Else knows About
I love glitter nail polish. I love it in every color. I can't get enough of it. There.

Most Beautiful Piece
That would be "Pola Negri and Rudolph Valentino: Birds of Paradise in Love." I was mad for the Federico Beltran Masses painting of the two silent screen lovers and adored the over-heated story of their romance. Was it fact or fiction? Who cares?

Most Helpful Piece
I think "Norma Desmond's Handbook: How to Live Life as a Star" was very helpful to those who plan on becoming a silent screen diva.

Most Popular Piece
"Theda Bara: What I Learned From My Jenny Craig Consultant" has been hit upon more times than a vamp at a cheap dive.

Most Controversial Piece
"What's So Great About...Or, The Fault Lies Not In Our Stars." I had the temerity to say that I didn't like "The Godfather" and did not think that Humphrey Bogart walked on water. Sheesh!

Most Surprisingly Successful Piece
"Kay Francis: Where Have You Been All My Life?": I was surprised at how many people love Kay Francis. It was great to learn that!

Most Underrated Piece
"Marilyn Miller: Look For the Silver (Screen) Lining": I wrote this very early in my blogging experience and did not have many readers. I adore Marilyn and enjoyed writing about her.

Most Pride-Worthy Piece
"The Flappers: Free, Female and 21": This was my favorite entry into my 13-part 2011 series "Strong Women in Film."

Pass This Award on to 7 Other Bloggers

The Lady Eve's Reel Life
Silver Screen Modiste
Flapper Flickers and Silent Stanzas
Creme de la Creme
Watch Classics
In the Mood

All good reads!

Thank you so much for awarding me this! As I had already received this particular award last week and have already done the whole re-awarding shindig I'm not going to do it again, but I will mention the fact that you gave it to me at the beginning of my next blog (whatever that happens to be, I have no idea at this point). Anyway, THANK YOU SO MUCH! Also, where have you been all my blogging life? I was just reading a couple of your articles and they're sheer genius, I tell you! You'll be hearing from me again, I think. ;)
