I Me Mine by notquitenglish on 1 May 2003 7:13am
I just got another (ANOTHER) Beatles CD today... the "Let It Be" album... and have discovered an odd talent for singing George's song "I Me Mine." I'm not a particularly good singer, but my vocal chords seem to match George's nasality... don't know where that comes from. On an even odder note, I've fallen in love with a dead man. Another one, I mean, as opposed to the ones I've been in love with before (the Marx Brothers) and the one I'm still in love with (John Lennon). His name is Jimmy Stewart. P'raps you've heard of him? I watched "Vertigo" last night and "Harvey" and "Destry Rides Again" a bit ago, which I suppose explains it. Just wanted to give you the latest on my "love" life....

Check out "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" - the best Jimmy Stewart performance I've seen, in my humble opinion! If you're into Hitch.... films, also check out Jimmy in "Rope," "Rear Window" and "The Man Who Knew Too Much." Plus there's the Christmas favourite, "It's a Wonderful Life." BTW, "Vertigo" has a great musical score, doesn't it? My favourite score in any Hitch.... film, although the "Psycho" music is pretty cool too!

Ooh Jimmy was gorgeous!! I fell for him bigtime when I first saw "It's a Wonderful Life" as a kid. Such a brilliant actor too.

Hmmm. Hitch....
Anyway, I love Harvey because it fits in so well with my philosophy...

"I wrestled with reality for thirty-five years, Doctor, and I'm happy. I finally won out over it."

"My mother always told me you had to be one of two things in this world... oh so smart or oh so pleasant. I've tried being smart. I reccommend pleasant. And you can quote me."

I'm not much of a James Stewart fan but just wanted to give you respect for being a fan of both The Beatles AND The Marx Brothers.

Might be more to the point to mention, a 17-year-old fan of the Marx Bros. and the Beatles.... and lots of other people who were popular way before I was born. Clark Gable, Jimmy Durante, Marlene Dietrich, Katherine Hepburn, Fred Astaire, Grace Kelly, Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn.

Notquitenglish, I'm right there with you. Those you mentioned, and many more, were truly "stars", not merely celebrities.

How about Natalie Wood, Sophia Loren, Gina Lollibrigida, Deborah Kerr, Jennifer Jones, Olivia DeHaviland, Rex Harrison, Erol Flynn, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Ingrid Bergman, Vivian Leigh, and a MYRIAD of others. Star-power! And for a good reason-----They were superb artists.

I'll quote an old saying:
"They don't make 'em like they used to".

Felicity - you have great taste. James Stewart was one of the best and like Michael he was a nice man.
