The many noses of Orson Welles— Movie Morlocks/TCM

If you are interested in Hulu’s Criterion Collection channel, this is a nice regular feature that can help you to weed through all the new titles— Criterion Cast

This is so cool. It’s a mini exhibit with Theda Bara’s costume from Cleopatra— The Silver Screen Affair

Dyan Cannon is writing a memoir of her time with Cary Grant. I hope it is as beautiful as the one her daughter wrote.— Laura's Miscellaneous Musings


  1. The Orson Welles post was such fun to read!

    And thanks for the heads up on Dyan Cannon's book. I just ran across Jennifer Grant's memoir in Barnes & Noble yesterday. Lots of great reading out there.

    I also saw Dick Van Dyke's autobio. Have you read that one yet? It's called MY LUCKY LIFE, I believe.

  2. I knew about Welles' crazy noses, but this is the most detail I've ever seen about them. I thought it was hilarious.

    Have you read the Grant memoir? It was lovely. She was so balanced, expressing her love for her father while understanding his weaknesses.

    I would love to read the Van Dyke book, if only to read about his times on the Dick Van Dyke Show. I've heard that was a very happy set.
