And last night I watched 1947's Sinbad the Sailor, starring Douglas Fairbanks Jr.--who did a charming imitation of his father's almost ballerina-like athletic antics--Maureen O'hara--a strong jawed, red headed (the film was in colour) Irish lady playing a Persian Princess--and Anthony Quinn. It was a really pretty, colourful movie that seemed almost peculiarly faithful to the sort of Arabian fairytale upon which it's based. The special effects weren't always so special, but were also charming enough and effective in their way.
And what the hell else would I tell you, blog? Let's see . . . My venti americano looks like a Grecian column.
