Holy moley! Now, *that* is a picture. The city is spectacular enough but Ms Wood in that dress… Oops, I’ve said enough!
Oddly, I remember reading something about the film of Sex and the Single Girl yesterday (just as reading Albert Brooks’s name in your novel extract was amusing because I read a few things about him yesterday as well! I must be psychic ;))
It’s a horrible movie, but that little black dress is something else 😉
The peril apparent in being up so high makes The Dandy think of Ms Wood’s unpleasant end and how we still know so little about it.
The Perfumed Dandy
I don’t think we ever will, requiescat in pace.
” It’s just a pippy-poo little book ..” Helen Gurley Brown 🙂 Have not read the book or seen the movie but Natalie Wood is gorgeous, although, at first ,I didn’t notice because I was amused by the interestingly phallic symbols in the city backdrop. Intentional symbols, do you think, or are we really supposed to be looking at the little black dress and I have misunderstood the point of this photo?
I think the perspective on this picture probably represents your gender 😉 Isn’t it interesting how men and women see things so differently? As to the pippy-poo little book, I think that describes the movie perfectly.
This photo is as glorious as the movie is horrible.
Precisely! Well said, beautiful M.
Thanks! Confession: I was not able to sit all of the way through that movie in one go. I just could not make that sacrifice. I had to watch it in parts.
I’m impressed you had the discipline to do that! It’s not even what I call “goodly bad” 😉
The whole composition, I agree 🙂
The epitome of confidence…gorgeous…
I was looking at that waistline and remembering my mom… and girdles in the early sixties and their sudden disappearance by the late sixties and the advent of “Mod”…
I always loved Natalie Wood – from what I know she had a tough childhood and obviously a terribly tragic ending.
Child actress to movie star… whew — and this is an understatement but I’m not fully caffeinated this morning — that is one hell of a road.
coming to think of it I’ve never quite noticed natalie wood’s acting. but she’s definitely been a beautiful, elegant figure.
This photograph is truly breathtaking!
This picture was taken when Natalie was shooting Love With The Proper Stronger in NYC. She was on the balcony of the Sherry Netherlands Hotel.
