Aye-Aye, Ferdy



In praise of the blogger named Ferdy
Her writing is pithy, not wordy
This blogathon star
is saving film noir
by keeping our eye on the birdie



Marilyn Ferdinand (seen here with partner-in-blog Roderick Heath), aka Ferdy of the blog Ferdy on Films, is the beautiful brains behind the For the Love of Film blogathon, an annual fundraiser for film preservation. The "birdie" is a reference to the Maltese Falcon statuette, aka the black bird, which was used in the icon above as a donation link to the Film Noir Foundation during this year's successful 'thon. Due to the lack of large donors, we didn't raise as much money as last year, but there were many more individuals giving to the cause. Thanks to all who so generously contributed! And if you haven't done so, there's still time. Just click on the black bird!

Thanks, Jacqueline! Gee, I've been called a lot of things, but never "stylish". Where do I go to pick up my statuette? Is it shaped like a computer monitor? (I'm vamping as I fumble around in my pockets for the list of people to thank...)

Hilary, This is just lovely. I've been looking for it and you've outdone yourself as usual. Thanks for the extra plug for the blogathon!

Stop it! Stop giving me the award! I can only pretend to be humble and gracious once a day!

But seriously, thanks.
