The Librarian

:-) :-(

CKUA just finished a tribute to Eartha Kitt (who died on Christmas Day) right now ... hers is one of the earliest voices I recall hearing on the radio as a child and one I've continued to adore all my life. And now I'm getting to hear song after song (plus they're replaying segments of old interviews with her)

Makes me happy and sad all at once
The Librarian

Another for dustdaughter's recent movie character list

It's been so, so long since I saw this flick that I'd forgotten it even existed until I saw it in a department store dollar movie bin today (which was mainly filled with schlock ... you know what those bins are like): Brother From Another Planet (character: The Brother, played by Joe Morton) ... which I remember as a charming, wondrous, made-on-a-pocketful-of-change little film that really outshone many of the bigger budget SF competition of that time. Needless to say, I pounced upon and purchased this little gem (and would have happily paid much more for it), plus the friend who was with me found and took home a copy for herself on my say-so that it was a must-see.

I LOVE finding treasures like that! :-)
