It’s the second fabulous day of the O Canada blogathon, and there are so many Canadian goings-on, we can hardly contain ourselves.

Today, we’re featuring Canadian women who wrote the proverbial book on how to be a movie star, along with a Hitchcock classic filmed in beautiful Quebec City. We’re also taking a look at an innovative and controversial director, along with a Canadian film from 1982 that made the world sit up and take notice.

And yes! We have another Mountie Movie!
