Oh my GOSH, Dolly's hair!!!

And it makes me so happy to see Shirley's still from "The Trouble With Harry", I always forget about her loveliness in that movie.

I've said it before, but I'll say again this film is soooooooo good. Dolly and Sally was robbed of an Oscar nomination.

Robert: I KNOW! I couldn't truly believe its altitude myself.

Andrew: It really is great. These ladies are all delivering some top-notch work.

Simon said...

Daryl Hannah looks...different. Go Elle Driver!

I'll say it, I don't like julia Roberts, okay?

Fine movie, anyway.

Luke said...

Yeah, she does look a lot different over the years... It's nice that her best work has come in the last decade, though: Kill Bill, Vol. 2 and that board game Liebrary. (Totally awesome game. :)
