but a cranky computer changed that
instead of having the TV as white noise background
I actually had to WATCH something !! go figure !!
However, much to my delight ...
TCM (Turner Classic Movies) again to the rescue !!!
COVER GIRL >>>> hard to believe was from the 40's.
What a treat !!!
Rita Hayworth ---stunningly gorgeous --- and Gene Kelly --- oh my
The dancing .... the music ... the singing ... wonderful !!
a storyline that was charming and a titch old fashioned but one that still teared me up !!
the main song whose music meandered through much of the movie ... beautifully haunting
and the words >>>> ...
LONG AGO (AND FAR AWAY)
Long ago and far away
I dreamed a dream one day
And now that dream is here beside me
Long the skies were overcast
But now the clouds have passed
You're here at last!
Chills run up and down my spine
Aladdin's Lamp is mine
The dream I dreamed was not denied me
Just one look and then I knew
That all I longed for
Long ago was you.
Gershwin song ... perfection as always
Jo Stafford singing ... sigh ..
