Transported, courtesy Scott and Zelda ...

I saw Midnight in Paris last night. It's a lovely film, especially for a semi-Francophile and 1920s-lover like myself. I was surprised how big a role F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald played. I am fascinated by this couple, despite their sad story, and have researched them for years. One of Zelda's biographies has been sitting on my shelf for a few months, and next week I will finally get around to reading it. In the meantime, here is a fun video of her and Scott.



By the way, Paris is my favorite place I've never been to. After watching this movie, I decided if I ever visit, I need to find a flea market and go record-hunting.

1. I want to see "Midnight in Paris" so much! I've read so many great reviews about it I can't wait :)
2. I'm also fascinated by the Fitzgeralds. I read the letters Zelda sent to Scott and they were so haunting and sad at the same time.
3. I have one of Zelda's bio pending too, the one by Nancy Milford.

5. What do you think of "Beloved Infidel"? (http://via-51.blogspot.com/2011/05/why-i-love-beloved-infidel-1959.html)
6. That video you embedded was awesome. I hadn't seen footage from them.

Well, that's all. Your blog is great, found it via Emma Wallace :)
