Film Noir

from Gilda

One of the many perks of working at the Museum of Fine Arts is being able to see wonderful films for free. The month of June is going to be filled with classic Film Noir movies and I am dragging William to all of them. I'm happy to report they're showing two of my favorites: The Maltese Falcon and Gilda. By maintaing a perfect balance between delving into the dark mindset of post-WW II America and satiating the audience's desire for entertainment, these films were wildly popular. Surely Bogart's devilish charm and Rita Hayworth's perpetual glamour helped a bit too.

Good for you for taking advantage of that (and good for William for being a good sport to go too)! :)

I really enjoyed reading your previous post-- wow! Your hard efforts and dedication are really paying off now-- I have a lot of admiration (and a bit of envy) for all you're up to now! And the travel!! Enjoy! Reading that post was very inspiring-- thank you.

So... what brought me to you?
Your kind words about my photography.

I can't believe I didn't think of this sooner, and I APOLOGIZE for that, but I noticed the sweet comment you left on Bliss (*thank you!*) and thought you might want to know that I'm holding a "photo of your choice giveaway" of my blog! The thing is, it ends tonight at midnight (Pac time). I'm guessing you're asleep since it's so much later there, but... if you'd like to enter and get this message in time, swing by and leave a comment to enter. Again, sorry I didn't think to tell you sooner!! And many, many thanks for your kind words!
