tumblr_lmp0y1uLjt1qbex4ko1_500It’s supposed to be Louis the XIV’s, a gift to Claudette Colbert in the comedy Bluebeard’s Eighth Wife, and of course it breaks like an eggshell around lanky Mr. Cooper. Funny how differently men are portrayed in the bath…

  1. Very rococo and Fabrege! I can’t remember the details, but I think part of joke of the bathtub was that Cooper was an adorable lunk who had obviously been swindled… I’ll have to watch it again!

  2. One of my first crushes — and my most recent (departed) dog was named after Gary Cooper. Tall, dark, handsome and brave. The dog was handsome, but far from brave. That tub would have terrified Coops!
