Perfection. They don’t make ’em like they used to now do they?
Oh, I have a feeling I know a gal in Arles who may just be a wee bit similar…actress, writer, etc.
Don’t forget Ms Gordon’s late-life acting turns in Harold and Maude, Rosemary’s Baby (oh, EVIL!), and, of course, the Which Way films of Clint Eastwood featuring Clyde the Orangutan! 😉
PS And isn’t that a hatfest for those ladies?! Claudette pulls that look off best. 🙂

Ruth Gordon is where it is at, now and forever.
I don’t think playing Maude was much of a stretch for her 😉 . Love her, love that movie!

Isn’t she exquisite? And the only thing lifting her face is her very fashionable bun.
That makes two of us!
She’s just got verve, and that perfect comedic timing!
