Hell, make it the Art of War too!

Dammit! I thought of that about an hour after posting it.

Btw, I've got a photo of Colbert and Marlene Dietrich which is quite, um, interesting. I can't decide whether it'd make a better 'When Legends Gather' or 'Sex Education' entry . . . so it'll probably go up as both.

Is that the one where they're at an amusement park or something like that?

I can't remember guys, have you ever run the Shirley Jones pcture from Elmer Gantry. You know the one with the nylon or silk stockings? Sure to be as controversial as topless Lucy.

You mean as a Sex Education entry?

Hmmmm. I have to admit this might reflect a personal bias, at least on my part (can't speak for Monsieur Cooke), but Shirley Jones . . . even in Elmer Gantry . . . never struck me as particularly, um, hot. In fact, I'd argue that Jean Simmons gave a far more sensual performance in that film. Shirley Jones' Lulu was a tad overwrought by comparison.

For some reason Shirley Jones reminds me of Sarah McLachlan (or vice versa), which causes some very mixed feelings.

And I never found Claudette Colbert sexy...until I finally saw The Sign of the Cross.
