Welcome to DAY TWENTY-FOUR of the 2013 Summer Under the Stars blogathon!

Today we will spotlight bloggers who will spotlight Charles Coburn!

First, a little Charles Coburn trivia … According to IMDb (so it MUST be true), Coburn actually needed the monocle that became his signature.

SUTS and Oscar: Charles Coburn was nominated for three Oscars, winning one:

Best Supporting Actor, 1941’s The Devil and Miss Jones (lost to Donald Crisp for How Green Was My Valley)

Best Supporting Actor, 1943’s The More the Merrier (winner)

Best Supporting Actor, 1946’s The Green Years (lost to Harold Russell for The Best Years of Our Lives)

Now onto the blogging!
