Friends, this morning we're busy peroxiding Cathy's hair, rouging her cheeks, and adjusting her attitude. On photo shoot day, everything must be perfection!
To get into the right mood, last night I watched 1944's Cover Girl, starring Rita Hayworth. Along with lavish technicolor musical numbers, the film boasts some gorgeous mid-Forties street clothes. Have you seen it?
Second banana Eve Arden is particularly well-accessorized, with marvelous hats.
We celebrate Thanksgiving in the late afternoon in my family, so I have most of the day free to spend with my cousin, who never gets invited to Thanksgiving anymore, since that unfortunate incident with the turkey stuffing.
Oh dear, friends, I must sign off: it's time to hoist Cathy's shoulders into place -- a two-person job.
Cathy or Joan: you decide!
I hope those of you who are celebrating Thanksgiving have a very happy holiday, and those who aren't enjoy the day doing whatever brings you joy.
