Day 98: Macresarf1's Year of the Apocalypse 2012 -- Watching Rita Hayworth, in preparation for Easter.

The weather warmed, as if in anticipation of rain, and then, the coming of Easter.  [That gets those pathetic fallacies out of the way!]

    My leg looked a little better this morning, and Son Guy's cold appeared to be abating somewhat.

    The stagger over to the computer was still painful, however, and once seated, I found a strange melange of technical problems to deal with.  These took up most of my worktime, and left an overage of repairs which will take up most of tomorrow.

    Later in the day, I watched Harris Faulkner on Fox Report.  She has wonderful style, and the provocative hint of her smile comforts me.  That somehow led me on to TCM, where I watched Charles Vidor's GILDA, which benefited from Orson Welles suggestions, and gave Welles' bride, Rita Hayworth, an opportunity for her most iconic performance.  The showing was part of the cable station's "Essentials" series, Drew Barrymore being Robert Osborne's current partner.  They added nothing I was aware of, but kept me in place for Welles' THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI,  a film which displays the great screenwriter/director at his most "fly-by-the-seat-of your-pants" brilliance.

   An aspect of GILDA which I had overlooked caused me to look my review up, revise it slightly, add a RED ROOM note, and publish it on my Profile Page.

   Macresarf1 would write no more this day.
