"Ya can't go wrong in this town if you say

Yep to the right people and Nope to the rest."

 

$_35.JPG

 

 

HER LIFE WAS SLANDERED by the whispers

                                                                                                       of a whole town.

     Until A BULLET SCREAMED

                      Her STRANGE STORY to the world!

"Yes, they talked of this woman, who came up from cheap honkyonks to take her place in society. In the grandest house on the smartest street in town!

on:

flamingo road

it's JOAN CRAWFORD

 

As a woman whose past

                     caught up with her...

The revealing story of a woman who came

from THE WRONG SIDE OF LIFE,

but MADE LOVE on the RIGHT SIDE OF TOWN.

 

A STREET and a WOMAN you'll never forget!

Boy, we're just having a PARTY playing with the settings, aren't we?

I once read an article many years ago on artists who created pieces using different typed fonts and pen and ink lettering; it was great.  That's what strikes me when I look at this - it's art.  :)

Picture+4.png 

They say, Ruby you're like a dream
                          Not always what
                                               you seem
                And though my heart may break when I awake
                                                                                                            Let it be so,
                                  I only know
Ruby, it's you


They say, Ruby you're like a song
You just don't know right from wrong
And in your eyes I see heartaches for me
Right from the start, who stole my heart?
Ruby, it's you


I hear your voice and I must come to you
I have no choice, so what else can I do?

They say, Ruby you're like a flame
Into my life you came
And though I should beware, still I just don't care
You thrill me so, I only know
Ruby,
it's you.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Theme song from Ruby Gentry, 1952

That's my favorite line from the trailer.

 

I love the distinction being made between the cheap honkytonks and the sophisticated ones.

Somewhat along those lines, I'll never forget the early 70's radio commercial for one of those dessert wines, either Mogen David or Manischewitz, whose punch line was "It's as modern as a peace demonstration".

Hmmm,  I wonder if you might use that same pattern for Kiss Me Deadly or On the Beach.

 

There's still time, sister.

and as a side note, i have noticed it makes a big difference whether you're viewing these images on a big computer screen or a small phone screen- the small phone screen makes the ones shaped like things turn out not right, but the abstract pieces actually look better on a phone screen.

I never knew the Wicked Witch of the West was saying "Look out" until relatively recently.

I think maybe it was you, LHF, who cleared that up for me.

Hi Lorna, I've put a few LIKEeroos on some of these but I like all of them. They are creative and entertaining. A couple of stated that they don't feel this is art but it may depend on what one wants to make of what art actually is. There is something certainly creative about, we might all be able to agree with that.

Thanks for the heads up.

 

BTW, SCARLET STREET is one of the best- if not the best- films in the public domain, which means you might be able to find a good, clean copy on the internets just in case you don't feel like waiting that long.

Take us the


foxes, the little


foxes, who spoil the


vines. for our vines


have tender


grapes.


"The


 world's


open for people


like you and me.


There's thousands of


us all over the world.


We'll ownthe country


some day. They


won't try to


stop us. We'll get


along." The ones that


are rich enough to give


are smart enough to


want. There's some


folks out there who


wants to eat the


earth, and some


who stand by


and watch


them do it.


I hope you


DIE! I hope


you DIE soon!

Don't talk to me           about self-respect.

That's something you       tell yourself you got

when you got nothing else.   The only thing that counts

is that                 stuff  you                   take to

 

 

the bank,  that  filthy buck  that  everybody sneers at, but  slugs to get.

The world isn't for nice guys. You've gotto kick and punch and belt your way

up because nobody's going to give          you a lift. You've got to do it

yourself,cuz nobody cares about           us except ourselves. Nothing's

cheap,when you pay the price              she'spaying!The private lady

of a very public enemy! A                 womanwho crossed the paths

of many men!You're look                    ingfortrouble,arent you?

That Forbes                                Woman again!

    

                    Joan Crawford  in

THE DAMNED

don't cry!
