Audrey Friday

So we have finally made it to the end of the week dahlings! It's been an extremely long week for me, so I am most definitely welcoming the weekend. It's supposed to rain this evening through tomorrow, so our plans to take Goobie out might have to be postponed, but we will see. I feel that we haven't been able to take her out as much these days because of the unpredictable weather, but hope that Spring will come soon so that we can do more things outdoors with her.  In the meanwhile, we will continue dancing in the kitchen, coloring, and having tea parties indoors :) What do you have planned for the weekend?

Since it's Audrey Friday, I thought I'd share a little Audrey trivia with you today. Hope you enjoy!

Audrey owned a Yorkshire Terrier that she called "Mr. Famous" which she loved very dearly and who appeared with her in a scene in Funny Face. Unfortunately and tragically during the shoot of The Children's Hour, Mr. Famous was run over on Wilshire Boulevard and killed. After the death of Mr. Famous, Mel Ferrer gave Hepburn another Yorkie named Assam of Assam.
 Audrey begged to get out of Alfred Hitchcock's No Bail for the Judge because she didn't want to perform the graphic rape scene; that's also because of her recent role in The Nun's Story (1959)
Was briefly considered for the main role in Cleopatra (1963) but the part went to Elizabeth Taylor
Although she was christened, Audrey Kathleen Ruston, her mother Baroness Ella Van Heemstra temporarily changed the her daughter's name from Audrey to Edda during the war, feeling that "Audrey" might indicate her British roots too strongly.
 Audrey's film career began in 1948 with her role as an airline stewardess in Nederlands in 7 lessen and ended 41 years later in 1989, with her last role in the movie Always with Richard Dreyfuss and Holly Hunter.
 Henry Mancini said of her: "'Moon River' was written for her. No one else had ever understood it so completely. There have been more than a thousand versions of 'Moon River', but hers is inquestionably the greatest".
Because she was a distant relative of King George III of England, Audrey was the distant cousin of Princess Diana of Wales, Prince Rainier of Monaco, and actor Humphrey Bogart
 Told People Magazine that she was very self-conscious about her size-10 feet.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend,

Vintage Pic of the Day

Since I mentioned I am watching Scarface tonight...

I leave you with the O.G ( that's original "gangsta" for you =D) Al Capone...
"You can get much further with a kind word and a gun, than you can with a kind word alone" 
-Al Capone

"I am like any other man. All I do is supply a demand"

Catching up...

I am so sorry about being a day behind on the Vintage Pic of the day post. It's been a busy week thus far, and today is an extremely long day for me, as I have my film class to attend after leaving the grind.

We're scheduled to watch Scarface (1932) tonight. Never seen even though I know my energy level will be reaching its low peak by the time the movie starts, I'm looking forward to watching it. Red Buuulll-A here I come ;)

Anywho, I hope you enjoy the pictures I picked for yesterday's post. The first one is a picture of a gorgeous little girl ( It think) holding her adorable little brother. Aren't they darling?!  The second is a candid snapshot  family portrait which I absolutely love! Mom is doting on her little cherub who is not a very happy camper, and Dad is having a grand ol' time with his little doll. So very precious!



Wishing you a delightfully, sweet, splendid day dahhlings!

Vintage Pic of the Day

Isn't she the loveliest? These pictures are from Violet Folklore's photostream via Flickr. Her captions read that this gorgeous doll was or is her grandmother Claire in the 1940s.  Look at her hair, make-up, her wardrobe...::sigh:: I was definitely born in the wrong era ;) 


 Yes, I know boo for Mondays! But I wish you have a happy one ;)

Happy Friday dahling readers! I hope you are enjoying your Friday night wherever you are, and that you are enjoying your weekend thus far.  We are staying in for the evening (as we usually do) listening the sound of the rain, sipping on a glass of Riesling, and enjoying a quiet evening since Goobie went to dreamland quite early tonight...the mister and I are very grateful for night's like these :)

My apologies for the latent vintage pic of the day post tonight, but I hope you enjoy this adorable picture of Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert from the hitchhiking scene in Frank Capra's award winning screwball comedy, It Happened One Night (1934), along with a video from one of the bus scenes where everyone sings along to "The Man on the Flying Trapeze"

I had the opportunity to watch this fantastic movie this last Wednesday night during my 1930s/1940s Film class and I absolutely loved it! If you have not seen this wonderful film, I highly recommend you watch it, as I'm sure you will truly enjoy it.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend dear readers,
