You know who had a wall of smells in real life? George Raft.
This one looks irresistible!
Saw an interview with Anita Page just before she died, where she spoke in some detail about making this film. “Joan Crawford never struck me as any kind of a great actress. Oh, and then she tried to hit on me! My mother wouldn’t let me see her after that…”
I should like to sample George’s smellwall. I bet it was quite something.
Joan’s great screen partnership was with the camera, so it doesn’t surprise me that a co-star wouldn’t notice the radiance.
But she noticed the Sapphic pass.
David: The now defunct branch of Kim’s Video, in what used to be the Bleecker St Cinema in NY, near those savvy NYU cinema students, had a section for “The Films Of Cedric Gibbons,.”
That could’ve contained twenty-five years of MGM movies! Did they also have an Edith Head shelf?
Edith Head would have to be a whole separate shop!
