"MORONS... SIT IN... CARS." —THE GIRL ON A MOTORCYCLE

.

Came across the Marriane Faithfull post on Cabinessence this morn and it pulled images out of the 'ole memory bank of Jack Cardiff's 1968 film The Girl on a Motorcycle. Decided to throw these flick clips up as inspired supplement to the Cabin-e post:

again, this is up for post of the year award.
you've got 2 nominations from me so far.
i've lost points for posting disinformation on my 'white' post.
me in the gutter, for now.
I think there should be a blogger awards blog for bloggers that blog?
criteria?

was lucky enough to see "Girl on a Motorcycle" screen at the Egyptian Theatre in LA some years ago.

ha! thanks for the nominations. cabinessence is the original gangsta! Q: criteria? A: sex sells! ha! actually, i feel like all the blogs together are the pages to a single thing.

the "white" post mistake= minor.

thanks E-Pumpernickel & Dr.— wouldn't have thought about it without the Cabinessence post.

haven't seen Night Porter in its entirety, but have seen the scene where, in nazi garb, she takes command of a room full of nazi men by strip teasing. a lot more going on in that scene than just a strip tease... considering her character in the film, i'm pretty sure, is a jewish holocaust prisoner.
