I will never not listen to Kate AGAIN!
Kate has been PLEADING with me FOREVER to watch a Dirk Bogarde film! I had no access to any, so she started plotting and planning which film she was gonna send me first for my Dirk Debut!
She finally decided on So Long At The Fair, I was actually quite excited, because it DOES have Jean Simmons (who I ADORE) in it. And Honor Blackman (her Cathy Gale was WAAAAAY cooler than Emma Peel, if you ask me!)...and random other cool British character actors! So, it definitely looked cool.
Dirk....well not so much! ;-D (Just kidding Kate! Don't send The Assassin after me!!!)
It really did not disappoint!
It was quite an intriguing mystery and the ending was COMPLETELY unexpected. Really! I would absolutely recommend it to anyone!
Jean was beyond stupendously amazingly cool in it! And Dirk, well, I guess he was okay...;-D
No, really he was quite good too. Although it was really weird watching a film of him for the first time, because I felt like I already knew him! Seriously, it's all those Discovering Dirk posts...I was like, "Oh, an artist, OF COURSE! I mean that's SO Dirk" (Yes, I literally talk to myself about fictional characters as if they're real...while alone in my room late at night!) Kate would be proud of how familiar Dirk seemed!
Anyways, there was also the super cool masquerade outfit that Kate and Casey had been telling be about! Very reminiscent of Audrey's crazy cool outfit in How To Steal A Million!
Yeah, so that was a highlight, but the whole film was GREAT! Literally, one of my new favorites!
^Jean was positively brilliant!
Yep, so tonight I'm gonna watch the other Dirk Kate sent me: Penny Princess. Now, THIS is a film I CANNOT pass up! It's got British accents and is all about CHEESE! It was made for me! ;-D
And speaking of watching films, since you promised you would! I think there's SOMEBODY around here who PROMISED (two months ago) to watch a Tyrone Power film...I don't want to mention names! Let's just say Kate G....uh, no, I mean K. Gabrielle....
^YOU NEED TO KEEP YOUR PROMISE, KATE! ;-D
Okay, that's all! Be sure and check out Kate's blog: Discovering Dirk Bogarde!
