Dynamic Duos in Classic Film

Laughs, love, danger and adventure – IN PAIRS!  It’s the Dynamic Duos in Classic Film blogathon!

In a co-host gig with the fabulous Classic Movie Hub (@ClassicMovieHub), Once Upon a Screen (@CitizenScreen) was thrilled to present a fantastic group of classic film bloggers in one of the most creative blogging events of the year (in my humble opinion).  I’m so appreciative of all those who participated that I want to allow them the spotlight as best I can.  Hence, I’ve created this page so that anyone interested in reading about the chosen perilous, precarious and/or personable pairs, which span virtually all genre of film, can do so in one place.  Forever and ever.

You need only take a quick glimpse at this list to notice what an impressive array it is – an ode to the classics we adore.
