Love. Love love love this piece.

Evelyn Roak.

But that book cover in Girls really is an homage to late Godard.

Capote has said he would have preferred Marilyn Monroe. An interestign idea.

Carol Matthau (a woman who REALLY knew where all the bodies were buried) said Holly was a mash-up betwen her and truman himself. She was right.

In any event for anyone with a pair of eyes and a workign central nervous system Holyy is now and wil always be Audrey Hepburn.

Lula Mae be damned!

But MacLaine DID make her own version of Breakfast at Tiffany's. Namely, What A Way to Go. And that double bill would be, ah, interesting.


Nice piece Glenn. Let's extend the ridiculousness to substituting Audrey for Shirley in MY GEISHA or Daisuke Kato instead of Rooney for Mr. Yunioshi. What's the point?


I saw my first Duplass bros movie the other night, Jeff Who Lives At Home, and boy, what the hell was up with those zooms?


Spot on, Evelyn. When I read Brody's line about the book cover being a Godard reference, a tiny blood vessel burst in my eye.

If you're into strong female leads, check out Parker Posey's new film, The Love Guide, coming out on DVD on June 19th! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwSkHKK2EjA

Did the phrase "strong female lead" ever mean anything real?

Isn't that funny; the whole time I was reading this I was thinking "but wherefore Parker Posey in this conversation?"
