Day 6 (conclusion): Order in the Court! the Classic Courtroom Movies Blogathon (in extra innings)...
Attention, bloggers: Due to the tragic events in Orlando Saturday night and their aftermath, we are extending the blogathon to give those who haven’t been able to complete their posts time to post. We will definitely be posting through today, Wednesday, June 15 if there are still people who want to participate. Today, Day 6, is here at Second Sight Cinema, so please post your links in comments below. Both this site and cohost CineMavens Essays from the Couch will post a full-roster recap tomorrow, Thursday, June 16. Also: Please make sure to link your banner and text links to back here—if you send readers to the other host’s website they won’t see any of that day’s posts! Thank you again for being part of Order in the Court! And if you feel like tweeting when you post, please do so at #COURTROOMMOVIEBLOGATHON.
Welcome to Day 6, the final day of our courtroom extravaganza! In the first five days we saw a huge range of posts, including one a lesser-known Hitchcock we ought to get better acquainted with (The Paradine Case) on lynching (Fritz Lang’s Fury), Louise Brooks’s Lulu in Pandora’s Box, Kramer vs. Kramer, and the Three Stooges—from the tragic to the sublime to the ridiculous, and now we swing into Tuesday with lots of good stuff still to come. Leave your link in a comment with your blog name and movie title below this post or tweet it #COURTROOMMOVIEBLOGATHON or @zleegaspar and I’ll add it to the roster of live links. We’ve had a few last-minute sign-ups and guest posts, and we’re thrilled you chose to get into the act!
We appreciate all of the writers taking the time to participate! Please be sure you’ve included one of our banners (from either of our websites) in your post, and link it back to the day’s host post (that would be me today).
