Wonders in the Dark: 'Gigi'

Over at the blog Wonders in the Dark, which is conducting its ongoing countdown of film musicals, my third and final contribution is "Gigi," which comes in at #22.

You can read the article here. I will repost it on my blog this weekend.

But I have to share a funny story. If you haven't read my last post, please do so before finishing this one.

As expected, this past weekend was yet another busy one. So, last night, at 11 p.m., I'm lying in bed thinking about today and how I need to finish my "Gigi" review, because it was due on Oct. 16. Then it slowly began to dawn on me that yesterday was Oct. 16, not today. I jumped out of bed, turned on the computer, and there was a very nice email from Sam at Wonders in the Dark reminding me to get my review to him before midnight. I replied with an apology and began to furiously finish the piece. I emailed it to him at 11:50 p.m. my time, which, now that I think about it , was past midnight his time.

In any case. I made it. Hopefully Sam's blood pressure didn't rise while he was waiting on me.

Feel free to comment at Wonders in the Dark or wait until I post the article here this weekend.


  1. I know just what you mean about busy, CFB! You did a really good article under pressure -- sometimes I do my best stuff that way too. That picture above is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen of any actress. That particular dress was my favorite in Gigi.
