Gentle Readers and Dear Friends our wacky weather here in the Bay was totally out of whack yesterday - it was bright and sunny with the heat getting into the low 80's - and I had actual sweat appear on my porcelain brow!! Now, it is only spring and it was only a single day, but for goodness sakes - that hot, that soon - through me for a loop! It is much better today and will be back in the low 60's over the weekend (with a chance of rain) so I guess one warmish day is OK.
Last Sunday we lost another Movie Star
- Farley Granger - 1925-2011
He started his film career with a small part in "The North Star" - 1943 and then moved on to bigger rolls. Two of his most memorable films were collaborations with Alfred Hitchcock - the films are - "Rope" -1948 and "Strangers on a Train" - 1951. By the late 50's he had moved onto the small screen with lots of TV work. He worked steadily at his craft through the 1970's, 80's and 90's with his last role in "The Next Big Thing" - 2001. He will be missed.
Last night the flicker was "The Cowboy and the Lady" - 1938 - starring Gary Cooper and Merle Oberon. A light fun film about a socialite masquerading as a lady's maid that falls for a plainspoken cowboy. A simple plot but great chemistry between the two stars. Well worth a look.
There you go sports fans - thanks again for stopping by, do come again!! Have a super weekend!!!
