Cinematic Happenings

A few nights ago I watched Lucille Ball in The Fuller Brush Girl. She plays a door to door cosmetics saleswoman who stumbles upon a murder. It was ok, not great, got too screwball comedy-like towards the end. Anyhow, the fashions were fantastic! Of course my photos don't show any of them. I was having trouble getting the movie to pause so I could take the pictures.

 Below, on the right, is basically what I wish I could look like on a daily basis. Love those star pins on the jacket. Love those sunglasses!!
I  also watched BEACH BLANKET BINGO, which I have decided is the best movie ever made. Not much of a plot, just killer surf guitar bands and light 60s pop while Frankie and Annette run around on the beach and wear super keen outfits. I want to live in this movie. Plus one of the guys wears an Ed Big Daddy Roth Rat Fink hat, so the film gets bonus points for obscure hot rod references.

 The gang has a killer beach house. No one appears to have a job however so I dont know who is affording said killer beach house.
 The gals sleep in an upstairs loft at the beach house.  No hanky panky allowed.
 Everyone hangs out at this super groovy beach bar  with awesome patio lights. Plus everyone is dressed up. I would hang out here every nite if I could.
 The Hondells play surf guitar while Linds Evans (who knew?) sings a great pop tune. I love bands that wear uniforms.
 I am loving Annette's dress.
