Another Kreativ Blogger for the road


Was that a too far fetched paraphrase of Dylan's "One More Cup of Coffee"? That's a great song, by the way.

Thank you so much for the Kreativ Blogger award, Andrew! Since I already went through the heart straining procedures of receiving this award and passing it on in October [post], I will just go ahead and include the very sweet description of my blog that was Andrews motivation for giving it to me:

There are many blogs dedicated to classic cinema, I'm following quite a few, but Lolita is one of the best. She makes the classics seem new every day and sometimes she'll even start talking about a current piece. Lolita is fun to read which is always nice and necessary.

That is exactly what I dream that people will feel about my blog, so reading that was a nice pat on the back! Especially since I'm lost in the pessimistic daze of a hangover for the moment. (Has been that a lot recently, hasn't it?)

I will also take this opportunity to congratulate a certain Austrian-Hungarian actor by the name Paul Georg Julius Hernreid Ritter Von Wassel-Waldingau on his 105th birthday. Some of you might recognize him as "Paul Henreid", but that is highly unlikely. Oh, I like that man.





Now, Voyager (1942) could survive a re-watch.

As someone who is still uncertain about Bette Davis [she's good, but I'm not a big fan] Now Voyager remains as near the top of my appreciation of her talents.

Andrew:
I adore the woman! Now, Voyager is one of her best performances without a doubt, but Henreid has my almost undivided love in that film.

YEAH! Congrats!

PAUUUULLLL! He's such a doll. And I agree Now, Voyager is amazing Bette (the eyebrows!!! ;-D), but really it's Paul's movie (well really it's Paul's VOICE'S movie, but yeah...)

Oh YES I like that man too! Paul Henreid was a looker. :) xoxo!

Now Voyager is the movie that made me both a Davis fan and an Henreid fan. It's such an oddball film, too.

Millie:
Have I mentioned how lovely you are, Millie? :) I agree with all your statements!

The Vintage Vamp:
Sophisticated leading men are the sexiest! Grrr!

Jennythenipper:
Absolutely!
