sure, a picture is worth a thousand words, but these home movies from Roddy McDowall's personal archives are pretty telling too. it's fun to see the fabulous in such a casual manner, not to mention what they're wearing!
in another (reluctant) attempt to say goodbye to summer, I give you these videos from a summer in 1965...
featured: Paul Newman and his Busch beer and short white shorts (!), a plaid swimsuit looses a strap, red gingham paper plates, raucous volleyball playing, pretty Jane Fonda in a pretty yellow bikini
featured: captain's hat, funky dances, Lauren Becall giving sultry looks, cute playsuits and pretty parasols
here's to hoping our weekends have at least a little of this vibe!
thanks to ACL for the tip on these videos
