Classic Links

R.I.P. Patty Andrews of the Andrews Sisters--The Guardian

Forgotten Films is a wonderful blog, with straightforward, compelling writing. It's introduced me to a lot of great flicks. Lately I've been loving reading the reviews of spy/action flicks inspired by James Bond. This is a great take on Deadlier Than the Male (1967)--Forgotten Films

I was excited to see this gallery of Mae Murray shots so soon after reviewing her biography. Love the hat in the last pic--Pictures

Love this review of Jeanine Basinger's latest book, I Do and I Don't: A History of Marriage in the Movies--The Girl With the White Parasol

Yikes--this is strange news about the producers of Mary Pickford: The Muse of the Movies--San Diego Reader

Yes Mental Floss, this is the greatest dance number ever filmed. It always amazes me how they could fling themselves around like that and still be graceful. I also love how expressive Harold is--Mental Floss

An academic has found the long-thought-lost screenplay for Laurence Olivier's version of Macbeth. An interesting tidbit: "Olivier and his then wife Vivien Leigh were to play Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, but also two of the three witches." Wow--The Guardian

Have you checked out my Pinterest boards lately? Lots of amazing additions to the Classic Ladies section. They used to take such amazing photos of stars--Pinterest
