Burgundy & midnight blue cashmere/silk grenadine grossa silk, Mackinlay plaid tartan irish poplin, corn yellow grenadine grossa silk and 6-fold red stripe on midnight blue with red grenadine fina stripe with rolled edges. Another batch of commissions that were wonderfully executed by David and his team.
While all of my other suits are side-vented, I have a ventless DB from Hickey-Freeman in a medium-grey heavy flannel with chalk stripes. I like the drape-y look and it's great for our cold Chicago weather.
The decline of the real Liz Phair is an even greater disappointment. Her first three albums were great, but then she left the CHI for LA to become "popular" and ended up writing tunes with pop tune factory "The Matrix".
I'm enjoying Jacques Demy's 1967 musical "Les Demoiselles de Rochefort" starring the luminous starring Catherine Deneuve, her late sister Françoise Dorléac (earthier, but equally sexy), Michel Piccoli, George Chakiris (who portrayed "Bernardo" in the movie version of "West Side Story") and the irrepressable Gene Kelly.
Nope, Sam Adam (one of Blago's attorneys), Sandi Jackson (Junior's long-suffering but hot wife, also a Chicago Alderman) and Toni Preckwinle (Cook County Board President) have all been suspected of harboring further political ambitions. Don't know about Mr. Robert Kelly, however.
At one time, Jesse Jr. was a bright light - a reformist pol who had more in common with Forrest Claypool (fellow Chicago know who I referring to) than his father (Claypool and Jesse Jr. actually did a TV ad for Larry Suffreden's failed bid for Cook County Commissioner). His career trajectory was eclipsed by Obama's rise from virtually nowhere (i.e. an obscure State Senate seat representing Hyde Park/Kenwood) and never recovered. If what Jackson is accused of turns out...
The early black-and-white opening credits were spoken by an announcer rather than using title cards.
Two early Andy Grifftih performances are among my favorites - The naive, Christ-like Will Stockdale in "No Time for Sergeants" and the very mendacious and power-hungry "Lonesome" Rhodes in "A Face in the Crowd".
Note to self: Buy a few more Sam Hobers.
Here, here, Nii.
