quote of the week, here.

 

eta: really, we should all be brushing up on our Russian, these days, nyet?

 

I did mention elsewhere that I started calling everyone "comrade" just to get in the habit.  ;)

It IS JOVOVICH, and it was LOLITA DAVIDOVICH that was in "Gods and Monsters".  And HER most recent film appearance was in THE LONG RIDE(2015)

 

MILLA (two "l's")  JOVOVICH will show up in this year's SHOCK AND AWE.

 

I get it.  Keeping those names straight can sometimes be a SONOVOVICH.  ;)

Both Jovovich and Davidovich had brief affairs with Peter Bogdanovich. The affairs ended because their friends were getting tongue-tied.

By pretending Humbert only paints Lolita's toe-nails.

One of the more disgusting images in film history.

You're right Lorna...my mistake...she was suppose to be the next big thing after some Joan of Arc crap....

 

s'all right.

i think Jovavich actually went on to a pretty solid (but not huge) singing career.

I think dating Mickey Rourke had something to do with her saying "no thanks" to HOLLYWOOD.

whenever Nabokov comes up, I always have to pull out my "literary hipster" cred and point out that LOLITA is fine, but PNIN and THE DEFENSE are much, much better. the latter especially if you're a fan of chess.

Seems I've SEEN that somewhere.   :D

 

Anyway, check out the remake with JEREMY IRONS as Humbert.  It's pretty good, and more true to the novel.

I hear she's got a house up in Fairview,

And a style she's trying to maintain. :)


Curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid get.

Thanks jamesjazzguitar.  Now that I think of it, I had a phone call and missed the beginning of the movie.  My grip on reality has been restored.
