Falling In Love Again (Never Wanted To)...

This thread is dedicated to one of the most beautiful pairs of legs ever to walk this planet- La Dietrich:


There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

And yes, my all-time favorite LaDietrich shot:

Can you imagine sitting on a cocktail party sofa with Marlene and Tallulah Bankhead in the same room?

I guess they're both up there chain smoking, knocking back the liquor, and laughing at humanity, both calling out in the most dulcid tones for Garbo, who can't be found...

Gosh, that woman was so beyond this world... Just put in a pic from Scarlet Empress and Notorious (X27) and I'll be completely happy...
We've actually broached the subject of Marlene in another thread of yours but I'm glad she's got a thread of her own...

Ich bin die fesche Lola, der Liebling der Saison!
Ich hab' ein Pianola zu Haus' in mein' Salon
Ich bin die fesche Lola, mich liebt ein jeder Mann
doch an mein Pianola, da laß ich keinen ran!

Ich bin die fesche Lola, der Liebling der Saison!
Ich hab' ein Pianola zu Haus' in mein' Salon.
Und will mich wer begleiten da unten aus dem Saal,
dem hau' ich in die Seiten und tret' ihm aufs Pedal!

Lola, Lola – jeder weiß, wer ich bin
Sieht man nur mach mir hin,
Schon verwirrt sich der Sinn.
Männer, Männer - keinen küß ich hier
Und allein am Klavier,sing die Zeilen mit mir.

Ich bin die fesche Lola, der Liebling der Saison!

Ich hab' ein Pianola zu Haus' in mein' Salon
Ich bin die fesche Lola, mich liebt ein jeder Mann
doch an mein Pianola, da laß ich keinen ran!

Ich bin die fesche Lola, der Liebling der Saison!
Ich hab' ein Pianola zu Haus' in mein' Salon.
Und [Doch] will mich wer begleiten da unten aus dem Saal,
dem hau' ich in die Seiten und tret' ihm aufs Pedal!

Ich bin die fesche Lola, der Liebling der Saison!
Ich hab' ein Pianola zu Haus' in mein' Salon
Ich bin die fesche Lola, mich liebt ein jeder Mann
doch an mein Pianola, da laß ich keinen ran!

Talking about the most beautiful legs that have ever walked the planet I think the only Hollywood actress contemporary with Marlene who stands the comparison was... (no, I'm not going to say Betty Grable as so many did but) Eleanor Powell. Just see Rosalie and Born to dance and I'm sure you'll agree...

Well I never... I thought 'fag' was not understood in the sense of cigarette in US English (I thought only the other meaning was used in US English). You ARE American, aren't you?
