Ladies and Gentlemen of the Blogging World, Rich of Wide Screen World and I cordially invite you to a blogathon tribute to the outstanding, and maybe not so outstanding, butlers and maids of the large and small screens.
From Hattie McDaniel to Thelma Ritter. From Eric Blore to John Gielgud. From Hazel to Mr. Belvedere. We all have a favourite or two, and here you can tell us all about them. Or perhaps you have scary memories of some servant in a horror film (eek!).
The Butlers and Maids (and chauffeurs, and cooks, and gardeners, etc.) Blogathon will be presented to the public on February 22nd and 23rd.
Please R.S.V.P. the invitation here or at our host's estimable site here.
