Thanks to everyone for their helpful camera suggestions. May I have many happy camera moments in the near future!
Favorite cousin S bought me this book for Christmas, as Jackie and I are pretty tight. I finished the book in two days - well written and quite respectful. Nothing scandalous. I bought S a Marilyn book for Christmas, as she and Marilyn are pretty tight. We both read "Are You a Jackie or a Marilyn?" way back when. S discovered she is a lot like Jackie, and I can relate to Marilyn. Who knew?
I'm now reading "You Couldn't Ignore Me if You Tried: The Brat Pack, John Hughes, and Their Impact on a Generation"....as you know, I love the 1980s and especially John Hughes movies. So far, I've learned that Demi Moore was just as crazy then as she is now and was told to clean up her act before filming started on "St. Elmo's Fire"...by the end of filming, she and Emilio Estevez were engaged .....Judd Nelson almost got fired from "The Breakfast Club" because he believed in Method Acting all-the-time (remember his character? this clip is a tame one) ......and John Hughes absolutely adored Molly Ringwald and basically wrote "Sixteen Candles" for her. She didn't even have to audition for the part.
And Gedde Watanabe (Long Duk Dong) was born in Utah and grew up there. He got a Korean friend to help him out with his accent for the audition for "Sixteen Candles".
This scene is one of my favorites in the movie. Every so often, Hubs and I do Grandpa's clap and say "Dong? Dong? Where is my automobile?" Especially in crowded parking lots when we are looking for the car.
Off to watch the "What Not To Wear" Premiere with Tiffany!
