50 Questions to Get to Know Me Better

Rob at movierob and Abbi at abbiosbiston have posted entries: “50 Questions to Get to Know Me Better”, and I have decided to follow suit since it looks fun and I am always ready for that kind of a challenge (and, maybe also because I have decided to do something different since tomorrow my blog is 6 years old (not a baby anymore)). Whoever else would like to take up the challenge, I am sure is welcome too! 

What’s your favourite movie?

The English Patient” (1996): emotionally powerful, beautifully crafted film.

Favourite movie in the past five years? 

A very tough question. I probably enjoyed the animation “Your Name” (2016) the most.

Favourite Hitchcock film?

I have two favourites: “Psycho” (1960) and “The Birds” (1963).

A book you plan on reading? 

I plan to read next “Laura”, a novel by Vera Caspary. Yes, that book which was later made into a film of 1944, starring Gene Tierney in a leading role.

Other pinups of her day may have been more racy (Bettie Page), more leggy (Bettie Grable), or more busty (Jane Russell), but in my book none of them can touch her stunning beauty, poise and indelible mystique. Standing a scant 4’ 11’ and weighing only 90lbs., Veronica Lake deftly filled the camera’s lens with more sex appeal in her little left eye than most beauties managed wearing half as much, and trying twice as hard.
