    This was the Rosalind Russell version. Just as campy, but without people busting into song.

    some good ones here…thou can never remember if Auntie Mame or Mame is with Lucille Ball… both are fun for different reasons ~

    I loved the one for the Hindenburg. I think that may be the only movie I haven’t seen. I think I need to get out more.


  5. Kayjai says:

    Sadly…I’ve not seen any of these movies. *sigh* I must try…I think I almost watched crazy, stupid, love…then SOMEBODY turned it off and my short attention span kicked in. Crazy, Stupid Me….
