Kristen Lopez View All
A freelance film critic whose work fuels the Rotten Tomatoes meter. I've been published on The Hollywood Reporter, Remezcla, and The Daily Beast. I've been featured in the L.A. Times. I currently run two podcasts, Citizen Dame and Ticklish Business.
I want to cover Angela Lansbury day with a post about me meeting her and witnessing her live, if that is alright? I also want to do Barbara Stanwyck as well. For Barbara, I will write about her Academy Award nominated performances.
It looks like TCM accidentally put a picture of George Sanders for Dennis Morgan on the 24th – just checked the site and they’ve fixed it. 🙂
Looking forward to the blogathon!
Hey again! I’d also like to write about Sidney Poitier in The Defiant Ones.
You’re good to go! Thanks for participating!
My post on Lon Chaney is now live
Thanks for hosting!
My Ginger Rogers article for Old Hollywood Films is ready to go
I didn’t have time to rewatch all of the films, so I did change it from ranking the films to my five favorite Astaire-Rogers dance numbers, but it’s done all the same.
Thanks for hosting!
Here is my entry. Hope I’m not late as have moved country so trying to find my feet…
Hi Kristen, hope you’re feeling better! Just want to you know my SUTS post is up and running: http://crackedrearviewer.wordpress.com/2017/08/12/john-wayne-in-john-fords-the-long-voyage-home-united-artists-1940/
Hi Kristen. I’m sorry to say that I won’t be able to get a post written on time for Barbara Stanwyck today. I’ve had so many unexpected things come up which is preventing me from doing things. At this stage I am still right for Angela Lansbury day. Hopefully, I can make up for today’s post by covering another star on their allocated day. It’s a damn shame, as I really wanted to write about Stannyy.
My article about Jailhouse Rock is ready to go. Sorry I’m a little late.
Here’s my post for Rod Taylor’s day! I can’t wait to write another one for Elizabeth Taylor on the 31st! https://annsblyth.wordpress.com/2017/08/18/the-2017-tcm-summer-under-the-stars-blogathon-my-top-five-picks-for-rod-taylors-tribute/

Hi Kristen, I published my Ann Harding post on Double Harness:
Hi! A little down to the wire, but here is my Simone Signoret post for today: http://silentsandtalkies.blogspot.com/2017/08/la-veuve-couderc-1971.html
My post on National Velvet for Old Hollywood Films is ready to go:

Hi again! Here’s my post for Elizabeth Taylor’s day. I couldn’t be happier to participate in such an incredible blogathon, and I can’t wait to do it again next year! https://annsblyth.wordpress.com/2017/08/31/the-2017-tcm-summer-under-the-stars-blogathon-my-top-five-picks-for-elizabeth-taylors-tribute/
