I'm right like almost never...   but you should follow me anyway   

I love film. I tolerate everything else.

If you decide to watch a movie on Valentine’s Day - and we here at BWDR obviously strongly recommend that you do - choosing one can be a bit of a minefield. The straight-forward Hollywood rom-coms of the past twenty years (at…

Interviewer:The problem may also be connected to the still-notable shortage of female film-makers. Why haven't any of you directed a movie?
Mirren:Because we're actresses!
Streep:Why don't you fly a plane?

Charlie Chaplin took the silent film era by storm in 1914 when his first film, “Making a Living” debuted on February 2.
He was one of the most iconic figures to fashion the toothbrush mustache when he first added it to his costume for his Mack Sennett silent comedies beginning in 1914. He claimed that the mustache - depicted here in a beautiful photograph courtesy of NYPL’s Billy Rose Theater Collection - added to his comical appearance while still allowing the audience to still see his expressions. 
Happy Mustache Monday!

 1.Take another woman’s man. Not intentionally, that is. Even though all’s fair in love and war and it ain’t no sin.  2. Try to be anything but myself at all time, publicly and privately, except on the stage or screen, for that’s where acting belongs.  3. Cook, bake, sew, wash dishes, peel potatoes, eat onions, or bite my nails.  4. Wear white cotton stockings or join a nudist colony.  5. Like opera, number thirteen, yodelling, cold spaghetti, rats, snails, men who shave their necks, or over-ripe bananas.  6. Care for people who whistle in dressing rooms or checks that bounce as high as the stratosphere.  7. Play mother parts, sad parts, dumb parts, or a virtuous wife, betrayed or otherwise. I pity weak women, good or bad, but I can’t like them. A woman should be strong either in her goodness or badness.  8. Go nuts about classical music, sandwiches, cigar smoke, places that smell like hospitals, and black nail polish.  9. Get excited over night clubs, contract bridge, fan dancing, bobby sox, the stock market, badminton or bust developers. 10. Be thrilled to death by orchids, anonymous love letters, souvenir post-card folders, earthquakes, slave bracelets, or beds with hard mattresses.  11. Be bothered by Scotch money-lenders or boys who lisp. 12. Believe the worst about anybody without complete proof nor will I believe that it’s useless to struggle against so-called Fate – the phony! 13. Walk when I can sit, or sit when I can recline. I believe in saving my energy – for important things.  14. Write a story that is unsophisticated, because I believe that innocence is as innocent doesn’t.  15. Marry a man who is too handsome, a man who drinks to excess or doesn’t carry his liquor like a gentleman, a man who is easy to get, easily led into temptation – unless I do the leading.
