"Oh! He flies through the air with the greatest of ease! The daring young man on the flying trapeze!"
I was SO happy it was on, that I hurried upstairs to my room and recorded a spontaneous vlog in the middle of the film and then scurried back down to finish watching the rest of the movie! I admit to being a silly classic film lover (sometimes) ...
You can catch my short vlog here & please let me know how I'm doing. I've only started doing vlogs recently and so far I've received a lot of positive feedback, but nevertheless, I'd still like to know your opinions. If you have any vlog topic suggestions PLEASE leave me a comment either here or on my YouTube channel!
Here's a shot of the wedding gown I mentioned in my vlog ... ain't she a beauty? I said that if I were to ever marry, I'd want to wear this exact gown (and veil). Granted I'd have to trim down quite a bit in order to do it as much justice as Claudette Colbert did in 1934. The gown was designed by the film's costume designer Robert Kalloch and is typical of that era: silk, satin, a-line gown with impeccable draping. The veil goes so well with Colbert's short pixie-like hairstyle and flatteres her round face. How could any man think twice about marrying such a lovely creature as Colbert's Ellie "the brat" ?? She looks divine in a wedding gown and can stop traffic with a glimpse of her leg ;)
