Schedule for the Universal Backlot Blogathon



The Universal Backlot Blogathon is finally upon us!  This weekend will be devoted entirely to the 100 years of Universal Studios and the films recorded on their backlot.  I’ll be posting up videos of the backlot tours, both past and present, for those who either haven’t been to Universal Studios Hollywood or want a refresher.  Here is the list of contributors and who will posting on what day.  This will all be saved in the Universal Backlot Blogathon section at the top of the page as well.  Keep checking back over the weekend as links go live and be sure to comment here or on the contributors site to discuss your favorite Universal films!
