The Jack Lemmon Blogathon begins here!

We're here! This year's WSW blogathon is for Jack Lemmon, a rare and inspirational actor like few we've seen in Hollywood. We got a lot of posts lined up for the next two days. I'll handle the first wave today. Leave your link in the comments, or tweet me at @ratzo318. Tomorrow, we go south of the equator and my pal Le will continue the blogathon. On behalf of both of us, thanks for taking part and enjoy the posts!

  9. Jack Lemmon was something special. Everyone knew it. When I look up at the screen now - I rarely see what he gave us. And that's very sad.
    My favourite fact about Jack: Before making it as an actor, he worked as a restaurant quality checker, but was fired because he kept rating everybody "excellent."
    Thanks again for hosting the blogathon, I've enjoyed every entry!
