Just a reminder: we had all the Nick Lowe references last time Marie appeared in the Gunslinger.

I play a little game, you see:
I wait a few days until the entries pile up, then I google "if charlie p..."

Once here, I scroll down very slowly but with great anticipation through each new post trying to see how many people in the photos I know before their names are revealed at the bottom of each submission. Identifying Marie Prevost in about 2.3 seconds tells me I'm either very Canadian or very much in need of female companionship.

Speaking as a Canuck, I'd say most Canadians wouldn't have a clue about poor Marie. Heck, most of 'em wouldn't recognize Norma Shearer, and she got a stamp!

I think it just means "We accept you, one of us...one of us..."

Thanks a lot. Now I have to hunt that dang song down. Again.

Here's the story of the song, as well as the real story of Marie:

Thanks for the link VP. It's hard to mention Marie without having the song come up (I'm looking at you, Chris). Don't get me wrong, I love Nick Lowe's song, like many others it's where I first heard of her, but I'm glad I've been able to get beyond it and find out more about her and see her films and find out what a fine comedienne she was. Ladies of Leisure is a great example, maybe Sony/Columbia will follow Warner Bros. and Universal's lead and let a few of those out of the vault on DVD.
