At the Movies

Well I’m sure you’ve all guessed by now that today’s movie is horse related. I was of course tempted to feature National Velvet, my all time favorite in this category, but Elizabeth Taylor has been in the news so much of late, I thought many of you had perhaps recently revisited this title.…

It feels as if spring might actually be on the way. And with the hope of warmer weather comes the urge to get out and go –  somewhere, almost anywhere. I’m dying to take a trip, envious each time I read about a blogger coming or going from Paris, Provence or Prague – couldn’t resist the alliteration, but would actually be happy to go to a non-P destination as well!…

In thinking about what to choose for today, I thought a comedy would be in order, especially considering the very uncomical impending weather. And since today is April Fool’s Day, this movie, with its fun twists of gender bender mistaken identities and roleplaying is perfect.…

How appealing is Colin Firth!! I think many of you would agree that he is a very captivating combination of handsome, talented and charming – doesn’t get much better. And I was thrilled, but of course not terribly surprised, when he won the Oscar last weekend.…

At the Movies: Auntie Mame

Auntie MameSince all of my posts last week were devoted to Fashion Week, we missed our usual At the Movies day. But Auntie Mame works for both all of the creative fashion folks that made the week so much fun as well as all the decor mavens and those of us who straddle both worlds.…

Things got moved around a bit this week, so our movie post is, just for this week, a weekend feature. Last Friday was my favorite romantic drama – Wuthering Heights, a beautiful soulful film. So I thought it would fun, in honor of Valentine’s Day, to discuss a more light-hearted romantic comedy.…

One of the diaries included in the Morgan exhibition that I covered yesterday is that of Charlotte Bronte. And although Charlotte was the inveterate chronicler in her family, her sister Emily is my scribe of choice. Wuthering Heights is her single literary classic and the film (which is based on only a portion of the novel) definitely ranks in my top 10 all time favorites.…
