Are you saying to Taylorannephoto, "Hit me, baby, one more time!"?
Lorelei: "Pardon please, is this the boat to Europe, France?"
Steward: "To where?"
Dorothy: "Not Europe, France, honey. France is in Europe."
Lorelei: "Well who said it wasn't?"
Dorothy: "Well, you wouldn't say 'Is this the way to North America, Mexico', would you?"
Lorelei: "If that's where I wanted to go I would."
Dorothy: "The dealer passes."

Cameron H., I just posted my Gigi notes in that thread. Apologies that it took me so long but I watched it over the weekend.

No problem! I just read your post, and you make a lot of good points :)

Thanks. I need to start watching the movies early in the pre-week instead of waiting until just before that Monday.

I hope I can actually watch this one! Life has been hectic recently and I felt like I missed the boat on the last one. By the time I had time to watch it, it was this Saturday.

I hope things have settled down for you. What I love is that MM's are a casual thing. If you've got other things going, you don't have to be pressured for missing one. :)

Oh I'm one of those people that always has way too many commitments because I can't say no to things :) This is how I accidentally became Vice President on a community theatre board. But I've been loving using the musicals as downtime! I never really watch the HDTGM picks, so this is a nice thing to get to seek out that I'm more likely to enjoy.

Nice pick- I watched this one a few months ago for the first time :)
Looking forward to revisit and discuss with everyone.

Epic pick, Taylor, and thanks for giving us an excuse to watch this! I've never seen any Marilyn either except for 'The Prince and the Showgirl', which prompted me to immediately shift my impression from Marilyn as a ditzy hack known only for her curves, to 'holy cow this woman is a straight up comic genius'.

By the way, I am not around as much at the moment because I have just relocated to Upstate New York for my new job at SUNY Oswego. Orientation started this morning and it's a LOT. In addition to my tenure track teaching position, I'm living in one of the resident halls as a Faculty Mentor Resident, so there's very little time, it seems. But, I write this sitting at the window of my apartment, looking out over Lake Ontario from the sixth floor. It feels like last week that I came in here to announce that I got this job!
