Containing Multitudes Since 2004
This one is particularly lovely. I've never seen her so ... loose and informal. Thank you!
Cool exterior, smouldering interior, at least based on the number of pre-marital affairs she had, mainly with older men who were often her co-stars.
Still waters run deep - the camera loved her face, much as it loved Louise Brooks's, and portrayed both with an almost frightening capacity to show their unearthly beauty with hints of what lay beneath burning out right to the back of your skull - yeah, I can see that well of loneliness, too, behind their plainest gazes, which were really smoldering glances, if you looked even a little hard enough.

She was so beautiful in "Rear Window" that her every appearance takes me out of the film.
I think seeing her closeup in Rear Window in the '80s (when they reissued all those long-dormant Hitchcocks) is my moment when puberty started.
I was already well into puberty when I saw "Rear Window", but . . . when she leaned into the camera I felt as though it had started all over again.
