Georgy Girl 1966

The mod costumes for the character Meredith were designed by Mary Quant. This movie is sad and disturbing in places. The song Georgy Girl that you hear played on the oldies radio station is from this movie. The song lyrics will never sound the same after you have seen the movie.

The Golden Arrow 1936

There is a dance scene on top of a giant army tank when Rita Hayworth is wearing a wedding dress with an intriguing fishnet top that extends out and covers the hands.

Broadway Melody of 1936 1935

This was our first time seeing Buddy Ebson outside of The Beverly Hillbillies. Fashion highlights are the gigantic ruffles and bows on the actresses. Elanor Powell is a stunningly talented dancer!

The Avengers '63 Set 2

We have seen before.

We love this series, it's one of our favorites!

The Avengers series from this era features poor production quality: sometimes you can see the shadow of the cameraman, or someone off camera bumps into something and makes a noise. In Death a la Carte someone is thrown a key and he doesn’t catch it and you can see him smirk before the camera cuts away.

The series feature a snappy jazz soundtrack, lots of guys in cool sunglasses, Steed in 3 piece suits, Mrs. Gayle changing into leather ensembles when it comes time to kick butt. Unusual avant garde as well as lavish sets. Steed especially seems to be having a good time in the series.

Lagerfeld Confidential 2007 (Lulu)

It was interesting to learn that he does his own photography. The movie opens with Pure by The Lightning Seeds, one of my favorite songs. Karl Lagerfeld has multiple iPods, bowls full of rings, and a library with moving stacks!
