Months of Meryl: Sophie's Choice

"This is the best Streep performance ever captured on film. "That's all."" - Dorian

"I support this movie, partially because I loved the Styron novel and, along with Schindler's List, it's one of the best American movies to teach people about the holocaust. Streep is sublime in it, and it's such a great role - she gets to play Sophie before the war, during the war, after the war, etc. " - Tom

Curio: Memorabilia Memorials

Alexa here, with my late entry eulogizing last week's departed greats.  I always find it interesting when we lose two idols at the same time, and they become linked in our mourning.  There couldn't be two more different performers than Williams and Bacall, could there?  Bacall, with her sultry, almost somnolent cool, and Williams, with his live-wire kinetics. Here are some curios, vintage and handmade, to celebrate their careers in film.

Bacall stencil tote available here.

Appropriately analog promotional material from one of my favorite Williams performances in One Hour Photo, available here and here.

A Cigarillo advertisement from my magazine collection featuring Bogie and Bacall, "both ardent sailors."

Bacall originated the role of Stephanie in Cactus Flower on Broadway (played by Ingrid Bergman in the film). See inside the playbill here.

Autographed photo available here.

Have you watched any Williams or Bacall films this week to say goodbye?

I've seen "Dead Poets Society" and "Good Will Hunting".
I need to watch one of his comedies again soon.
And I really need to watch some Bacall classics. I'm ashamed to admit I've never seen one....*drop*
Any suggestions?

Sonja: The Big Sleep is an easy way to fall in love with Lauren Bacall.
