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."

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. ;)
