Some movie stars you "know" from long time ago but you've never seen them in action, i mean acting. The famous "Peekaboo girl" (1922-1973) it's a good example for me. I knew since the 80's that she was petite, blond, pretty, that partnered often with shorty Alan Ladd, that her trendy trademark hairdo has to be changed so girls working in factories during WW2 didn't have work accidents and that her life end up too soon and her carrier even sooner.
Well, i just saw I Married a Witch (René Clair, 1942) and i finally met her in the "light". A delicious fantasy romantic comedy that was the inspiration for the famous sixties TV series Bewitched (and somehow of I Dream of Jeannie too). And there she was! Cute, funny and sexy. Now I wanna see more of her. I guess i will soon go for Sullivan's Travels (Preston Sturges, 1941), Blue Dahlia and the rest of the highlights of her carrier.
I just wish i had met her earlier...
And to put the cherry on the top this funny 40's sounding song "Murder, he says" in the voice of the great Tori Amos!
