I’m back! Did you like the haikus? They may not be art, but I sure had fun writing them. I have missed doing the links—why don’t I just get right back to it?
Though it doesn’t quite work, I would recommend Track of the Cat (1954) with Robert Mitchum to just about any classic movie fan. If anything, it is interesting because the setting was made as colorless as possible so that it would appear to be a black and white movie made with color film. This review pretty much sums up my feelings about the flick— Mondo 70
What inspired this guy to make an 8x5 foot portrait of James Dean out of dice and then change the image to Marilyn Monroe? It looks amazing. Maybe that is reason enough.-- YouTube (via About.com )
Supposedly there is a rare Charlie Chaplin film being auctioned --another man claims to have found several rare photos of Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield . Both the film and photos were purchased for very little money. Whether or not these finds are legit they do have me wondering how many other movie-related treasures are yet to be found.
I’m looking forward to seeing this documentary about Jack Cardiff, the legendary cinematographer of gorgeous Technicolor flicks such as The Red Shoes-- NPR

I got quite the Mother's Day present at 10:10 pm, Sunday, 5/8. She was 8lbs 3ozs and 21 inches long. We've been home for a couple of days now--happy and healthy.
Last movie seen before delivery: Jazz on a Summer's Day (1959)
(I still haven't finished it, but it was a re-watch!)

Being a housewife and a mother is the biggest job in the world, but if it doesn't interest you, don't do it. It didn't interest me, so I didn't do it. Anyway, I would have made a terrible parent. The first time my child didn't do what I wanted, I'd kill him.

In this 1971 clip from Here's Lucy, 60-year-old Ginger Rogers shows she still has it as she dances a lively Charleston with Lucille Ball and Lucie Arnez. The also 60-year-old Ball does pretty well herself. That crack she makes about Rogers winning the Texas state Charleston competition is actually true; she won the contest as a teenager.
