  1. I have never seen it but it seems like it would be worth buying some groceries and settling in for a watch.
  2. Tom Ewell also starred with Marilyn Monroe in The Seven-Year Itch.
  3. You are correct about her house. I hadn't heard of that so I just looked it up. Searching "Pink Palace" got me a place in Tennessee. I had to add her name to find it. I also know there's a room in Graceland (the Jungle Room IIRC) that has carpeting on the ceiling but that was practical. They would record in there sometimes and the carpeting helped with the acoustics.
  4. Yes, you can see the nipple on Jayne's right breast (her right) starting to peek out.
  5. Hopefully it's OK to post this. I love Sophia Loren giving Jayne the side-eye. Here's Sophia's side of it.
  6. I've never seen the show. Just went looking for GIFs after Taylor's comment.
  7. Can't sleep. The_Triple_Lindy will eat me.

    Rereading this I think maybe it is more like belly dancing and was just so scandalous to people of the time. Belly dancing can be suggestive but I have seen nothing that would make me rethink having young girls learn it.

    One other thing I'm not sure about. I wanted to know what the "hoochie cooche" (mentioned in the title song) was. It was a dance done by women and was suggestive. Maybe not the best thing to be teaching Tootie? (Although given her other proclivities this is probably the mildest one.) Wikipedia does mention its last "hurrah" was at the 1904 World's Fair and then was gone by WWII. Wiki link

    So they really did meet in St. Louis!

    The cake walk you mention is the carnival game not the formal dance.

    If Lon had already gone to Princeton for a while surely he had taken a trip or two into New York City? He could tell them what it was really like and maybe research places to live so they wouldn't be in a tenement.

    I hesitate to bring this up but it's bothering me. Esther and Tootie do a cakewalk during the party. The lyrics are questionable but the dance itself doesn't appear to be kosher (at least for white people to be doing). I thought sure we had a previous pick where a cakewalk was done or mentioned. Does anyone remember that? Here's the Wikipedia entry on cakewalks. And in modern times... Thoughts?

    "Meet Me in Ferguson" just doesn't roll off the tongue the same way "Meet Me in St. Louis" does.

    Those elves worked awfully quickly to make new toys instead of the bag of coal she was going to get. Also, how did they afford so many dolls that she could keep burying ones?

    Apparently Tootie's morbidness comes from the original book. I can't copy the PDF but here's a link. It's related to the author's childhood.

    Maybe Tootie was the murderer? She WAS "the most horrible of them all".

    I like how they used the term "spun sugar" for cotton candy. It was originally marketed as "faerie floss". Maybe using the generic term allowed them to avoid paying royalties.
