Containing Multitudes Since 2004
She comes from IrelandShe’s very beautifulI come from Brisbane I’m quite plainShe’s from the mountains, so close to heavenClouds on her shoes, stars on her chestI love Lee Remick, she’s a darlingShe was in The Omen with Gregory PeckShe got killed, what the heckHer eyes are like gemsShe’s an actress for Screen Gems I love Lee Remick, she’s a darlingHer hair’s red, but it’s not dyeIf I touched her, I know I’d want to cryMy life is desperation, but it’s only infatuationI love Lee Remick, she’s a darling~ Lee Remick by the Go-Betweens
Here's the song.
She made "good goobie" an integral part of my vocabulary (via the TV miniseries of Haywire.)A goddess. An icon of beauty. A funny, classy lady. And a really fine actress on both stage and screen."Anyone Can Whistle," Lee, but few as exquisitely as you.
I thought about that song at work when I saw this. "A Face in the Crowd" - some sort of apotheosis was reached withby her there; not sure just what kind, but it weren't no earthquake that rattled my brain.
Lee Remick has always ranked at the top of my list of "most beautiful women in the world." She looked fabulous in this picture and seemed to look much the same until shortly before her far too early death. Love her quote too: "I make movies for grownups. When Hollywood starts making them again, I'll start acting in them again."
What. A. Face.
A Face in the Crowd is just about my favourite American movie.And it was prophetic: coarse and abusive as entertainment is at its height now. And what's more, the "King of Australian Television" (Graeme Kennedy) began a 'unique' career of deriding sponsor's products the year the movie came out. Coincidence? Sure. You bet.
She's all-American, that gal, Midwest and Ohio.
