indelible moment: Wilder's "Some Like It Hot"

Jerry (to himself): "I'm a girl. I'm a girl. I'm a girl."

His eyes stray down the aisle. In Upper 2, Sugar is getting ready for bed. All Jerry can see is her legs dangling out of the berth as she removes her stockings. But that's all the indenitification Jerry needs.

Jerry (calling down the aisle): "Good night, Sugar!"

Sugar (sticking her head out): "Good night, honey."

Note in Passing: "Good night, honey," indeed. Today marks the 50th anniversary of Marilyn's passing. As columnist Dorothy Kilgallen wrote at the time of MM's death, "Sleep well, sweet girl. You have left more of a legacy than most, if all you ever left was a handful of photographs of one of the loveliest women who ever walked the earth."

Good night, Sugar!

Nobody's perfect? Perhaps. But this moment is.

I liked it when Josephine rips Daphne's "other chest".

Thanks a lot for giving everyone an exceptionally brilliant opportunity to read in detail from this web site. It really is very enjoyable plus jam-packed with a good time for me and my office friends to search the blog nearly 3 times per week to see the fresh things you have to say. Great piece on MM!
