“My Man Godfrey”

While perusing the blogosphere I discovered the “Thin Man” movies starring William Powell and Myrna Loy.  William Powell is so funny in those movies.  I was hunting through Netflix the other day for a good, classic film to watch and came across “My Man Godfrey” starring William Powell and Carole Lombard.

I decided to give it a try.  It is such a good, funny movie.  Carole Lombard’s character, Irene, is a spoiled, rich young woman.  She brings Godfrey, a forgotten man, to a big party.  He helps her to win a scavenger hunt.  She then hires him to be her family’s butler.

This family is such a funny, dysfunctional mess.  It is a fun comedy with a bit of message.  I highly recommend this film.

Audrey Hepburn Photos

I discovered just the other day that Taschen had published a new book of Audrey Hepburn photos. It was a limited edition printing and super expensive, but cool none the less. All of the pictures were taken by Bob Willoughby from 1953 – 1966. Click here to learn more and even flip through several pages of the book. The following photos are found in the book and were new to me.

I simply adore Audrey!

I don’t remember where I found this picture, but I absolutely love it and had to share! It’s so glamourous and gorgeous!

I love this movie!!!!

We watched this over the weekend and I just absolutely loved it!  It is a perfectly executed homage to the 1930’s serials.  A delightful movie for lovers of vintage.

We Scout Wednesday – My Childhood Inspiration

Posted on

I first read Little Women by Louisa May Alcott in the 5th grade.  I fell in love with the book, the character of Jo March, and the authoress almost instantly.  Jo is a voracious reader with a wild imagination much like myself.  As I a child I had less confidence than Jo, but I was inspired by her strength.

I have read the book several times over the years and have fallen more and more in love.  I own three movie versions of the story.  My favorite stars June Allyson, Janet Leigh, Elizabeth Taylor, and Margaret O’Brien.  Whether reading or watching I laugh and cry along with the characters as I’m swept away to another time and place.

I even own a set of porcelain dolls which includes all four sisters and Marmee. My mom and a friend helped me bring the dolls to a toy store an hour away from home.  The artist was there and she signed each of my dolls.  They are precious so to me.

I have serveral books about Lousia May Alcott as well.  Her life was interesting and she, too has become a role model.  She knew Ralph Waldo Emerson and she supported her family with her writing.  She was unconventional for her time.

I will always hold a special place in my heart for Jo March and her sisters.

What Book Character Are You?
Jo (from Little Women)
Jo (from Little Women)
You care deeply for your family, who are pretty much your best friends. You are a bit of wild child, who doesn’t always play by the rules. You don’t care an atom about what other people think. You have a brilliant imagination and your life never has a dull moment.
How do you compare?

This is a beautiful, sad story with a lovely soundtrack. It reveals how the Tinman came to be in the woods. The story itself was written by L. Frank Baum.
