Last Weekend of Summer

Okay, not technically.  Or even atmospherically here in Austin where the stretch of 100+ degree days probably won't end for a couple of weeks.  But it's the last weekend of summer before school starts for the kids.

Wish we had a great beach trip in the works, but we'll be living it up at the community pool.  By the way, I love this Marilyn Monroe pic.  Three of my favorite Monroe films are Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, How to Marry a Millionaire, and Niagara.  I really recommend Niagara if you enjoy film noir (and want to see a rare one in color) or if you enjoy cool movie sets.

They built "Rainbow Cabins" as a set, so you can't really stay there - a disappointment to pretty much anyone who has seen the film.

I'm trying to watch more of Monroe's films.  Do you have a favorite?

  1. I just watched Gentlemen Prefer Blondes last weekend (thanks, netflix stream!).. I really enjoyed Some Like It Hot, if you haven't seen it yet.
