It's the final day of our For the Love of Film III blogathon to raise funds for the National Film Preservation Foundation's efforts to stream The White Shadow. Once again, your host is Rod Heath of This Island Rod. Click over to Rod's place for all your blogathon needs; remember that he's in Australia, and his hours won't synch perfectly with the North American day.
Our total at last reckoning was $2,140, far short of the $15,000 we had hoped to raise. Two who chipped in are Kenji Fujishima of My Life, at 24 Frames Per Second and Lee Price over at 21 Eassays; both are winners of the raffle prizes donated by the NFPF, copies of the splendid set Treasures 5: The West, 1898-1938, featuring two films we saved with funds from the first blogathon.
The totals so far are, to be honest, challenging the Siren's usually sunny blogging attitude. Clearly, we could use a nice twist in the last reel, and the Siren, Rod and Marilyn Ferdinand are hoping one shows up. The mighty James Wolcott of Vanity Fair has done his part, for one, and we hope you have, too. Warm thanks to everyone who has participated so far; kudos to those who have donated, we salute you. And if you can, click below and donate--it would be great to have a happy fadeout.
