My super gracious agent hosted a lovely summer lobster dinner at his apartment last night. Before exiting, he pulled out a stash of DVDs for me to borrow. Yay for more reasons to keep my sanity intact by staying indoors, away from this horrible, sweltering weather.
Neiman Marcus’ Ken Downing told me to watch the DVDs in the following order:
1) Mommie Dearest featuring Faye Dunaway
2) Auntie Mame featuring Rosalind Russell
3) Mahogany starring Diana Ross
4) All About Eve featuring Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders and Celeste Holm
5) Grey Gardens featuring Edith and Edie Beale
6) Eyes of Laura Mars starring Faye Dunaway
7) Black White + Gray starring Sam Wagstaff and Robert Mapplethorpe
Have you seen any of these films? I’ve seen Grey Gardens a couple of times before but that’s about it. Whenever people ask what my favourite film is, I always rotate and pick one from my list: Romy & Michelle’s High School Reunion, Clueless, Unzipped and Paris is Burning.
