  1. Oh, dear. Poor Mistinguett appears to have stuck her finger in an electrical socket! She won't get any sympathy from Margo...

  2. I couldn't think of Sonja Henie the other day. I was talking to mother about Esther Williams, and I was like... there was a woman who did ice skating movies too. And mother said, Joan Crawford? I said... I don't think so... ice melts under that bitch. Kizzes.

    1. Oh, darling! Always listen to your mother. Joan-Crawford-on-ice is actually a real thing! Jx
