Announcing the “It Takes a Thief” Blogathon!

Time for a new blogathon! I am inviting you to write about thievery in films.

The caper, the heist, kidnappings, great escapes, con artists, high-class jewel thieves, art forgers, hungry peasants stealing bread, in any genre–all will be accepted!

You many write about films from any era from any area of the world.

You may also write about television shows, either those featuring a thief as a main character (for instance, Remington Steele or White Collar) or individual episodes featuring thievery (the “Dead Freight” episode of Breaking Bad or “The Train Job” episode of Firefly).

This is a very expansive topic, so my only rule is no duplicates, unless it’s two versions of the same story (i.e. the two versions of The Lavender Hill Mob).

The blogathon will run Friday, November 17 – Sunday, November 19. You may post any day (or earlier, if you wish).

To claim your topic, please request your choice in the comments section below, or contact me on Twitter (@DebbieVee). Include the name and URL of your blog. Then grab one of the banners below, display it on your blog and link it back to this post.

Thanks for joining in!
