"A Spinster Aunt Is An Excellent Person To Select Presents For Young Girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

                           Darlings, when I found out that "Now, Voyager, " which I have not seen in a long time, will play the Film Forum sometime in October, this line just popped into my head.

                             Once I was in this position, girls.  So, this blog post is a rally for all out there who are struggling with spinsterhood--gay or straight--to set your sights, and go about your business, as if you owned the world.

                             Let's face it, Charlotte had it rough from the start, having sprung forth from the vaginal teeth of Gladys Cooper!  That is enough to do in anyone!

                             But, helped by an eyebrow job, and an Orry-Kelly wardrobe, Charlotte flung off the mantle of spinsterhood, and, girls, I am telling you, you must, too.

                               The scary thing is, in just ten years, Davis really would look like this, when she played a town librarian in "Storm Warning."

                                 But beauty products were not so abundant, then.  There is no excuse to look this way, now, unless one is just pathetic.  There is a lot of that out there, though!

                                  I know none of my girls are that way!  Always look your best!

                                  Spinsterhood may not be empowering but they have more taste than most.  Hence those nieces' gifts!
                              See this film in October, and be inspired, dolls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of my all-time absolute favorite films!

"my mother- my MOTHER- MY MOTHER!!! AAARGH!"

"He wishes he understood me. HE wishes..."

Used to catch it every single time it was on "The Late Show" (before inane celebrity whoring replaced movies as late night programming).

I need to pay more attention to Film Forum's calendars: I've been missing good screening all year.

When October comes, I promise we will go.
I am sure the audience will be full of gay
men relating to either Charlotte or Tina.

When this was show on TV I cried real tears
every time. I felt I was living it.

My other favorite line is from Gladys Cooper,
when she says, "Please remember, Charlotte, we are
not commercial travelers. It is bad enough having to
associate with these tourists, on board!"

This pops into my head often when I ride the subway!
