Blogs are hard work….. whew.
Actually, they’re only hard when you can’t think of anything interesting to talk about.
I’m happy to admit that without my readers, I’d never know what to write about,
…. but they often send me ideas or inspire me with comments that lead to posts.
my email account somehow got raped and pillaged by Yahoo this weekend, so my backup email address is : email@example.com )
Today, I had a coupla choices, but nothing really excited me all that much.
………..so, some of y’all apparently do know I used to have a thing for Jane Seymour.
“Used To“, is rather a strong word —
…. perhaps, “Still Do” might be a bit more accurate.
And she does look awful good in her underwear.
But, never mind.
All I’m sayin is that if her publicity department ever gives her any of my messages, I’m planning on running away with her…
— I’m even working on developing a poshy English accent —
assuming, of course, that:
1: She’ll call me back
2: She can be persuaded I’m a movie star
3: Her eyesight and judgement are totally gone.
I guess tomorrow will be just another day here at the Muscleheaded Blog.
Here’s an awful secret I’ve never shared with anyone out there in internet land…..
( I betcha even my obviously-has-inside-information-about-my-secret-hottie-list-picture-sending pal doesn’t know this .)
I also got this thing for TV’s Lily Munster.
You know, from the 1960’s series “The Munsters“.
OK— does that make me weird-ER ?
Well, I should explain, I guess, why it’s not that awful of a secret at all.
…… although LILY didn’t look too bad in her underwear, either…. )
Actually, I got a thing for the lady who played Lily Munster.
Yvonne De Carlo.
she was a beauty queen,
an opera singer,
a showgirl at Southern California’s Florentine Gardens and in Vancouver,
and a bathing beauty in movies and print.
Yvonne had a simmering sexuality that comes across easily, no matter what the medium.
Her dark complexion and confident persona made her the perfect offset for the blonde bombshell archetype that was all the rage during the 40’s and 50’s.
Her dance background taught her the value of being in shape–
So, she was usually in top condition, and loved all forms of exercise and dancing.
Director Bert McKay described Yvonne thus: “I sensed in her a depth, an emotional power, a womanly strength….. ”
Many of her photo spreads that appeared in the 1940’s reflect these same qualities — humor, strength, quick wit, and raw power.
She started out in Hollywood doing B-Movies for Paramount, as a kind of poor man’s Dorothy Lamour —
Yvonne became a big star during the fifties, in movies like “Ten Commandments“, “Road to Morocco“, “Casbah” and “Salome, Where She Danced “.
She took to the role of Lily Munster with her typical verve, and explained to a reporter one time how she played the role :
“I follow the directions I received on the first day of shooting:
‘Play her just like Donna Reed. “
After the Munsters, Yvonne continued to work in movies and on television until her death in 2007, at age 84.
Yvonnes’s most famous quote reflects her off-kilter sense of humor:
“Men, no matter what their promises, rarely leave their spouses… the louses.”
