"Crabbiest of the crabby"

On Dramatic Real Life Confessions

What about the possibility that Armstrong GOT CANCER from his steroid usage?

Doesn't that kinda give a different slant to his rising up out of disease to triumph story?

On Gold Shell Earrings

Hey, these earrings look pretty but those spines look awfully pokey for the neck area. Also, using a phone may not be possible.

On "Please keep God’s lines short and few.”

I just reread "Marjorie Morningstar" AND watched the movie, which was pee-yuuuu stinky! Noel is only supposed to be 10 years older than Marjorie but GENE KELLY was cast and he was close to 30(!!!) years older than the lovely Natalie Wood. He looks good, but he is not Noel Airmann as described by Wouk.

The best parts were CLAIRE TREVOR putting on a New York Jewish mother accent, as Marjorie's mom, and the clothes and mid-century furniture.

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: The Gloria Swanson Saga, Part Two

I am currently reading "Swanson on Swanson", and looked on ebay at some GS dresses the other day. I am glamour sized, and appreciate that GS saw the fashion void way back when and did her best to fill it. I know for her it was just a smart business choice niche market, but really, what other teensy movie star would design for the glamour-sized woman? Even in 2012---who would dare to associate her image with the glamour-sized market, even if it made piles o' money? The taint of legitimizing plus sizes would be too awful, the backlash too vicious. The void gapes.

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: The Gloria Swanson Saga, Part One

I was JUST watching Sunset Boulevard a couple days ago on the netflix.

I first saw this movie in So Cal at the Balboa Theater, double feature with All About Eve. I think I was the only gal in a theater full of gay guys. TOO fuckin fun/ny!

She really "gave good face" as ol what's her chops would say. She looks stunning in pretty much every pic, but the silent film make up makes her look a little different in each one. Lounging in the chair she looks most like Norma D.

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: The Long Suicide of Montgomery Clift

There are is an unintentionally hilarious moment in "A Place in the Sun" when Elizabeth grabs Monty's head in a clench and says something like, "Tell mama. Tell mama all!" Oh jeez, really? MAMA?

I was kind of sorry to see no mention of co-star Miss Shelley Winters, method actress and pal of Marilyn's and Marlon's, mentioned in the article. Miss Winters has played the sad, unloved woman in the way in many movies, and she is so good in this one. She had herself quite a time with all sorts of interesting people and wrote at least two, probably three, massive volumes of autobiography. I have only read the first one, and it was excellent, highly recommended!

Oh, and I think folks get a Luke Perry association with Monty because they both have the bobble head on a stem neck look about them.
