A happy anniversary…Once Upon a Screen

Lo and behold Once Upon a Screen turns one year old!

I’ve been congratulating several bloggers, some of my favorites, as they’ve celebrated momentous milestones on their blogs of late all the while regretting I didn’t make note of when I started Once Upon a Screen.  Unfortunately, I’m not that organized.  Then today, I received a lovely congratulations on the page’s one year anniversary from the wonderful folks at WordPress.  Whoever you are – thanks!  Needless to say that means I can’t let this day go by without some kind of mention, a tribute to the many reasons I started this blog – for myself and…

For the laughter…

for the class…

for the tears…

for the romance…

for the memories…

for the talent…

for the sex appeal…

for the heart…

for the fun…

for the style…

for the mystery…

for the wonder…

for the miracle…

and for the look…


For ALL that is classic film and what it is in me.

A heartfelt note to all those who have stopped in for a look and a read.  I am truly grateful.

    1. Thanks so much, Amy! I thought to search for all different images of classic film for each category then thought, WHY? One man had and did it all!

    New rule: all blog anniversaries must be celebrated like this!!

    1. Love that, Sarah! I couldn’t stop looking at Mr. Grant! Hence, every single picture is of him. How can anyone ever go wrong with that?! SIGH indeed!

    1. Thanks, Tonya!

      I’m glad you enjoy that enthusiasm and passion – what should be left out of professional communications but I care not to in these posts. 🙂


  4. An anniversary of writing a blog and keeping up the quality and interest is something to be really proud of. I’ve been enjoying getting to know you better lately, and I’ll be around here too. Oh, and something tells me you kind of like Cary Grant – LOL! Wonderful pictorial. Congratulations!

    1. Thanks so much, Becky! I’ve been enjoying our exchanges as well. You’re a hoot. AND I better step it up if you’ll stop by here occasionally. You’re one of my fave bloggers!
