Movie talk...

More Information about last nights movie and the stars - it was during the filming of "Possessed" that the Crawford/Gable affair started or at the very least had been going on pretty hot and heavy - after the breakup and Carole Lombard's tragic airplane death - they were very close and their friendship lasted for decades only ending with his death.

Look at this picture -





If there was no affair - then at the minimum the chemistry on screen was pretty hot !! Here is a a quote - Lovemaking never felt with anyone like what it did with Clark. ~ Joan Crawford That sort of says it all....


Last night kicked off a month long tribute to RKO Studios - on Wednesday evenings TCM will be featuring their films - and so it was "What Price Hollywood" - 1932 with that most beautiful of stars Constance Bennett in the lead roll as Mary Evans. This film is the first of four versions of a "star is born" theme film the second being "A Star is Born" - 1937 with Janet Gaynor, the third a musical "A Star is Born" - 1954 with Judy Garland and the last (so far) "A Star is Born" - 1976 with Barbra Streisand - it is an old story and will probably be remade at some point.


Stitching last night was a finish up night on the "gift-a-way" present and it turned out pretty nice - if I do say so myself!! I am really feeling that old startitus...... what should it be...

I have also started to send out the partner info for the SBBC - 2009 and will finish the emails up today. If you have not gotten your partner info by 3:00pm PST today then let me know and I will resend.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Take care,
edgar

I always think of Joan Crawford during the Mildred Pierce period, you know Mommie Dearest, and all. If you hadn't identified her I wouldn't have known it was her.
