Now Playing Tracks


i fucking hate that i’ve been shaving + not shaving for over twenty years (i sometimes shave my armpits and legs, but i mostly don’t) and i still have hunt down a long-sleeved dress for friend’s daughter’s bat mitzvah to toss in a suitcase for next week…because i don’t know what the vibe there is going to be, and i don’t want to be seen as too eccentric or impolite to my hosts. (this happened, today. and it didn’t even occur to me to think about it until i saw this article an hour later).

the only thing to do upon seeing a story this weird, is to continue to push the idea out into the world, where it may be seen by girls everywhere who are being force-fed the opposite message.

hey girl…you do have a choice.
and the choice should not be a bullshit-lip-service choice - one that every woman claims to have but doesn’t actually feel deep down because they’re truly afraid of raised eyebrows if they lift their arms up in a sleeveless dress.
it should be a real, actual choice.
i hope we get to point in my lifetime where people give no actual fuck.
we’ll get there someday.

International Photographer magazine from January 1941, with cover photo and an extensive article devoted to the 1941 film, ‘Citizen Kane.’ Three pages of behind the scenes photos by Alexander Kahle, still photographer for the movie, are featured in the article entitled, ‘Welles and the Cameraman’ [pdf].

You can download the screenplay here. (NOTE: For educational purposes only)

William Forsche had to dig deep in the basement archives to find this rare interview. 3 minutes into this video we hear from ‘Citizen Kane’ make-up artist Maurice Seiderman. We also see Orson Welles full head life cast which is currently housed at the Museum of the Moving Image.

For more, see our archive under the tag, “Citizen Kane.”
