Pick of the Week

Iconista does have a soft, romantic side; like Bacall in her prime, it's slim, but it's choice. That's why she was rather taken by these Victorian snaps by Lady Clementina Hawarden, c1860.

Glamour Daze did shoes this month. What's not to love?

While Sheila, bless her, pieced together a gazillion quotes on Mr Smith GTW. Ms O'Malley must have very little else to do. Simply read Capra's comment on darling, darling Jean Arthur. It'll do you for the day and leave you time to attend to the rest of your diary.

How could Iconista possibly ignore any post from Garters, especially on Jean Harlow? Iconista grows fonder of Harlow by the year.

Hollywood Heyday has published a sweet little study from 1932 on Jackie Cooper. Read it all if you wish. If not, Iconista will save you the trouble: here's the nub:

"He is a real boy with the normal interests of a real boy. If you can get the subject around to football, baseball or aviation, you have a chance of getting some responses."

Sounds like every man Iconista ever met.

If you're looking for something a little more clever-clever, Film Forno takes the time to dissect the classic Orphée. Iconista suspects she may have met her match in Cocteau's vision of Death.

Meanwhile, Parker, adorable as ever, is giving cooking lessons.

Iconista never cooks.
So far there's been no need.

(Kisses to Parker incidentally for the mention.)

Gunslinger posted this fine dinner in their Men of the West series.
Yippee-ei-o, darlings. Iconista is packing her lasso and heading out there immediately.
