    This movie is SUCH A DELIGHT! It's a cute little rich guy/poor girl musical with catchy '30s songs and John Mills is so adorable I almost can't stand it. One of my favorite new-to-me movies this year. I highly recommend it!

    This is a movie about the Black Death, directed by Jacques Demy, and starring Donovan. If ever there was a movie with "KATE" written all over it, this was it. I wrote a review that's probably way too long for letterboxd, complete with rat gifs and everything: Full review on my blog.

    In February I sent an autograph request to Alain Delon. The forum messages on the fan site where I got the address said that he typically replied within 4 months, so after June and July were long gone I had pretty much given up hope.

    But today when I woke up there was a soggy photo mailer sitting on my doorstep in the rain, with French stamps and a Paris postmark.

    I'm so glad the stars aligned for this movie to be made in the 1950's. I doubt anything could ever do Van Gogh's paintings justice better than midcentury technicolor and the old Hollywood studio system budgets & attention to detail. And, I mean, to point out the obvious, Kirk Douglas. Thank god somebody decided to make this movie while he was at his peak Van-Gogh-lookalike-ness.
