|09:33 am - Two Links for Today|
In case you missed them --
The AV Club looks at Astaire and Rogers. I'm not completely convinced by Gwen Ihnat's readings of some of their films, but it's a good overview.
Emma Thompson is profiled in The Observer, in advance of a hoped-for film release of a film she wrote about John Ruskin and his wife Effie.
Cool things on a Sunday! May you have even more good things today. :)
I absolutely love the clip from Roberta, it's not one of the movies I've watched all that often and I'd forgotten that dance. The ease, humor and joy are wonderful.
I would definitely watch a movie about Ruskin and his wife.
You're so right about the Roberta clip. They just CONNECT in it. :)
Cheers and hugs, S!

The Ruskin film sounds really interesting.
It does sound fascinating!
[hugs and a good Sunday]
I have just seen that several comments I've posted to your LJ have not, in fact, posted...my tablet apparently has other ideas about what "enter text in comment field before submitting" actually means. Sorry to have given the appearance of not commenting...
And these are terrific links. Thanks for the Emma Thompson link, because Ruskin and I were old friends back in my Romanticism days, and this is like a welcome home.
happy Sunday, L, and be glad that our department meeting is not tomorrow. (Although i wish he wouldn't send those notes that are so easily misread as "I mean THIS COMING MONDAY.")
The Emma Thompson article is really cool, yes -- and I'm glad that thinking of Ruskin is a joy for you!
Cheers, and happy Sunday evening indeed! [hugs]
Great articles! Thanks for sharing the links.
Glad you liked them, Chase! Happy Sunday. :)

A script by Emma Thompson about Ruskin and his wife should be interesting!
It really should be! Let's hope the legal issues get sorted. :)
Hugs and a good start to your week, K!
You always provide the best links!
Thanks, ALH, and hugs!
(And have fun on your upcoming visit with Rainkatt. :))
Emma Thompson is pretty awesome. If you haven't seen the clip of her presenting at the Gokden Globes, you really should google it. ((Hugs))
I did see that clip of Emma Thompson -- she's a role model! :)
