Today, my papa would have been 92 years old. One of the first movies he introduced me to outside of Shirley Temple was Betty Grable’s Mother Wore Tights. I can still remember the VHS cover of her in a sparkly black kitty costume (I even made it the featured image on this post). I just knew when I grew up I was going to exude the same amount of glamour Betty did. So, I’ve decided to host a Betty Grable blogathon being Betty held the title of Earl’s Favorite Blonde.
The rules are exceedingly simple:
The same topic can be covered twice.
You can write about anything you want. I’m totally fine with a post about any of Betty’s co-stars if their time with Betty gets some sort of focus (so no passing “He/She starred with Betty in X and it was a hit.”)
Please try to avoid anything salacious. I don’t think Betty was perfect by any means, but much has been written that just isn’t true.
All entries should be new content.
Betty died on July 2nd, 1973. The 3-5 is the closest weekend after her death.
Comment below with your topic! Early entries are welcome, but I’m not posting on here until the 3rd.
