Rent Carol Lombard's house. Sadly, it just looks like a random house, but the vintage pics of Carol enjoying Billy Haines' lovely interior decoration are gorgeous.-- Curbed

RIP Roy Baker, 93, director of the best Titanic movie (in my less-than-humble opinion), A Night to Remember (1958) [it bums me out that my beloved Guardian got the date of that Marilyn Monroe movie wrong]-- The Guardian


  1. I'm reading the Errolivia book right now and it's got a bit of sleaze. Sorry to disappoint you. I wish it were more fact and less conjecture. Oh well. I'll be writing a review about it soon.

  2. Good interview. You have great taste.

  3. Raquelle--I'm sorry to hear that. I don't know if I will bother reading it. There are too many other interesting things to read. I look forward to your review.

    TMWB--Thanks so much. I rarely get accused of having great taste. Usually I hear "unusual", which I guess I take as a compliment. I'm glad you dropped by.

  4. Thank you Lourdes! I'm glad you dropped by.
