Amazing that Ron Shelton's movie Blaze was so sexless.

Not so surprising when you consider that the movie was as much about Earl Long as it was about Miss Starr.

Somehow this picture bothers me and I can't figure out why. Maybe it's the look of her skin. Somehow it just doesn't look "right".

It doesn't look right because it's Arbus and hasn't been all Photoshopped. This is what real humans look like, especially when photographed by a sociopath.

The old jump blues "It Must Be Jelly ('Cause Jam Don't Shake Like That)" comes to mind.
