On How Marilyn Monroe Stayed in Shape

@and it's not even my birthday From what I recall this one is the most comprehensive:

Goddess: The Secret Lives of Marilyn Monroe
Anthony Summers (Author)

I also like:

The Unabridged Marilyn: Her Life From A to Z Hardcover
by Randall Riese (Author), Neal Hitchens (Author)

Some people prefer this one:

Marilyn Monroe
by Barbara Leaming

to the Summers book.

On A Very American Spite House

The owner clearly loves tile and stone yet the pool deck is all splintery looking wood.

On What Kind of Restaurant Are You?

I am like Joan's on Third. It's a restaurant in LA with good food and a cranky owner.

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: The Ecstasy of Hedy Lamarr

That book may have been a pack of lies but every other book about her on the market is boring. Hopefully someday she will get the bio she merits.

On Siri, Direct Me to Joaquin Phoenix's Heart

I can't look at Joaquin with out thinking of Johnny Galecki ever since I saw that not-about-Scientology movie. That may have been the only thing I've seen him in. So I don't know if he has always had those facial tics and mannerisms or who is imitating who.

On The Trailer for "Love Is All You Need" is Charming and I'm a Sucker

I saw a screening of this and was planning on walking out if it sucked. There are a couple of things you can see coming a mile away but overall I liked it a lot. The original title is "The Bad Hairdresser" if that helps.

BTW has anyone seen "The Long Good Friday?" It's good and Pierce has a charming cameo in it.
