Was this picture taken before or after they wrote My Fair Lady?

"Rope" was just on TCM recently, and I realized how much I enjoyed Stewart's performance by itself, and also the mysterious waif, Joan Chandler.

Richard Gibson said...

'Rope' - amazing. Hey what was the film, maybe late 80's and 90's about these two?

Vanwall said...

"Swoon" Nothing to write home about - a by-the-numbers approach, without the jagged edge needed for a murderous folie-a-deux.

Compulsion is much better. But then I love black and white Cinemascope.

Richard Gibson said...

Rob - 'Swoon' that's it thanks!

swac said...

I can't wait for the musical version.

Vanwall said...

You're a sick puppy. It could happen, tho.

SomeNYGuy said...

Sit down, fellows: it already happened. The musical was called "Thrill Me."
