Wide Ida


Lupino deserves more words, but Iconista deserves rest. Fill in the gaps for me, darlings, and wake me when the cocktails are shaken.

I adore Ida! She was a fabulous actress and director.

Hard to believe Ida was brought to America for the purpose of playing Alice (in the 1933 "Wonderland," a role that went to Charlotte Henry). She'd have been terribly miscast in the part, exuding sensuality rather than innocence.

Bless you, VP, for your informative gobbets. They're like olives in my martini.

Thank you, Iconista. I hope one of these days you will add "Carole & Co." to your blogroll.

Oh Darling! Are you not already there? I suspect some New Year spring cleaning might be in order.
