Criss Cross (1949): "this is as good a movie about stupid people as one will ever find"-- Laura's Miscellaneous Musings 

If I had to describe what I love about Kay Thompson (Funny Face, Eloise author) in one word, it would be confidence. It turns out, she went a bit far with that, and it caused her some heartbreak. This is a fantastic post-- Movie Star Makeover 

100 Ideas That Changed Film sounds like an amazing book. I've got so much stuff to read, but I don't think I'm going to be able to resist this one-- Brain Pickings 

Check out the Leading Man Tournament. It's always fun to see who people pick in these polls-- Journeys in Classic Film

  1. Thanks so much for the link, KC, I'm glad you enjoyed my take on CRISS CROSS (grin). So great to see it on the big screen!

    I love Kay Thompson in FUNNY FACE!

    Best wishes,

  2. I don't mean to overshadow the rest of your review, because I loved it, but the way you slipped that line in there did crack me up.

    I've never given Kay Thompson much thought, so I was (a little) surprised to hear that she was such a challenging person. I feel for her though.
