From memory, I think it was a basket with knitting needles, but my memory is vague on it. Joan Crawford, and I know you know this, is the woman to the far left. Also, check out Robert Young's (yes, that Robert Young, standing to the far right) sport coat. It is a beautifully tailored herringbone.Your perfectly nuanced analogies have convinced me...I must see that movie. After all JR Ewing was my spiritual business management mentor and Bobby was my social mentor.....or perhaps I just had the hots for Victoria Principle. Now I'm off to find a copy of The Shining Hour! The promise of 75 minutes of family stye internecine warfare is too darned rich to resist. It just might prove the perfect instrument for honing my emotional sword to an ever finer edge in preparation for the next family reunion. Bwahahaha! What evil lurks in the heart(s) of men,,,,and women? The Shadow knows.
Seriously, thanks for another great review.
PS: Is Joan Crawford using a small fishing creel for a purse?
