I watched the film 'The Long Hot Summer' (1958) recently and I really liked it, I am very much partial to anything with Orson Welles in it, he along with Vincent Price could captivate me with a soliloquy on football (which I dislike).

And now I fear I have fallen for Paul Newman, oh my he is just lovely isn't he?! I have seen him in 'Cool Hand Luke' (1967) and 'Cat On A Hot Tin Roof' (1958) but his character in this is just so adorable, to me anyway. He plays Ben Quick, a mischievous thief who works his way into the wealthy Varner family. His beautiful co-star and off-screen wife Joanne Woodward also stars, as well as Angela Lansbury and Lee Remick and the aforementioned Welles playing the tyrannical yet ultimately kind hearted father, Will Varner.
The film is superbly acted and the clothes are rather sweet, lots of cotton dresses, hair in buns with ribbons. Which had me daydreaming of summer which in the UK has been non-existent for sometime now, however we do tend to get a couple of days of sunshine so I shall continue to daydream or just wear my flimsy dresses with layers.
|Love the detailing on the back of the dress and the coordinating hair ribbon|
|Adorable flower print dresses, chic bun and pink lemonade to top it off.|
