I got dressed this morning feeling very 'Mogambo' (or Ralph Lauren S/S 09, whichever you prefer).
For those that don't know, I am a huge classic movie buff and have spent many years collecting and watching classic films (from the popular to the obscure, from 1933 to 1975), as well as classic film books, posters, autographs (Lauren Bacall's autograph and a letter from the great late Katherine Hepburn are my prized possessions), etc.
Mogambo is one of those films that I had to see due to my love for Grace Kelly AND Ava Gardner (Clark Gable ain't too shabby either). It's pretty entertaining, if not just being a blown-out soap opera amidst the apes of Africa.
I wouldn't recommend you run out to the store and rent the thing (if you can find it) but it's wonderully on-location shooting and stylish stars make it worth catching if you happen to see it on TV.
It's also a remake of Red Dust, again starring (a much younger) Gable and a famous blonde, this time Jean Harlow. I liked Red Dust a little bit better but you can be the judge.
Anyhoo, I present you my version of Mogambo!
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!! x0x0 Lusty
PS - Due to various comments and emails I get, I will definitely come up with a list of my favourite shops (most are online and/or Ebay and all ship to Canada - cuz duh, that's where I am :). Plus my best Ebay advice (I've been buying and selling at least once a month since 2001)
PPS - I've changed my comment settings because I know a lot of people (AMANDA!) read my blog but don't have a blogger account or can't remember their password lol. I'll change it back if I get too many nasty comments but until then, comment away!
