So that was Mrs Lundegaard on the floor in there. And I guess that was your accomplice in the wood chipper. And those three people in Brainerd. And for what? For a little bit of money. There’s more to life than a little money, ya know. Don’t ya know that? And here ya are, and it’s a beautiful day. Well. I just don’t understand it.

Do you know when I first started loving you?

On Friday, July 21, 1933, in preparation for the production of QUEEN CHRISTINA, Greta Garbo sat for a costume test with cinematographer William H. Daniels. This piece is an excerpt from the nine-minute long test. No need to adjust your speakers, there is no sound for this costume test. 

Directed by Rouben Mamoulian, QUEEN CHRISTINA premiered December 26, 1933 in New York and was released nationwide in 1934. 

The costume test was preserved by the Academy Film Archive in 2012 through “Project Film-to-Film,” aimed at preserving as many films on film as possible over a two-year period. The project allowed the Academy to make new elements for over 500 projects in the Archive’s collection.

Happy 90th birthday, Betty Joan Perske, a.k.a Lauren Bacall (16.09.1924) - (12.08.2014) ∞ 

“I’m not ashamed of what I am - of how I pass through this life. What I am has given me the strength to do it. At my lowest ebb I have never contemplated suicide. I value what is here too much. I have a contribution to make. I am not just take up space in this life. I can add something to the lives I touch. I don’t like everything I know about myself, and I’ll never be satisfied, but nobody’s perfect. I’m not sure where the next years will take me - what they will hold - but I’m open to suggestions.”
