New blog for YOU.

I'm not sure if many of you will be interested in this, but I am shifting my blogging focus a little bit. I guess I'm going to do more of the "lifestyle" thing here:

Feel free to check it out. There may be a movie review from time to time just for kicks ;-)

Frances Farmer in Come and Get It (1936)

I have yet another Frances Farmer post. I finally found some footage of her acting via YouTube. Here are two short parts of her film, Come and Get It. I watched it last weekend, and while it's a bit slow, Frances' performance locked me in. I thought she rocked it. Her deep voice sounds so haunting, no?

A new girl crush

At first, I thought Frances Farmer was interesting. Now, it's become a full girl crush. First, she's beautiful. Second, her performance in Come and Get It was amazing. She reminded me of all sorts of actors I love, like Joanne Woodward, Mae West, and Clara Bow, but at the same time, there was something more unique. Third, this photo is boss:

I mean, come on now.

I recently watched Frances (1982), a biopic starring Jessica Lange as '30s actress Frances Farmer. Though the name seemed familiar to me, I did not know anything about Frances, nor had I seen her films. Her fall, as depicted in the film, impacted me. It seemed like she had a lot to say.

However, I am excited to receive her film, Come and Get It from NetFlix this weekend. Her work proves hard to find, but I am hoping she can become a new favorite actress. I think she's beautiful.

Oh, and Jessica Lange gave an incredible performance. She received an Oscar nomination for that year, along with a supporting nom for Tootsie. She won the latter.
