Reason for my semi-hiatus

In case some of you have noticed my lack of presence on there or rather my lack of posts, I just wanted to let you know that the past few weeks have been nothing but stressful school wise. But the exam preparations are over soon, since my exam is on Monday. And when that thing is over (and hopefully I will pass it successfully), you will see more of me again.

But up till then, you might not or only see me very sporadically. Keep your fingers crossed though!

Happy Birthday Natalie Wood!

I didn’t know who the hell I was. I was whoever they wanted me to be.

Why must father tear up the advertisement his children have made and throw it in the fire?! Why won’t he mend their kite?! Why have you made him unspeakably awful? Why can’t he—they—live well?

Happy Birthday Barbara Stanwyck!
(July 16, 1907-January 20, 1990)

When we were shooting Golden Boy, the stages were dingy, dirty, and poorly ventilated. And the film wasn’t as fast in those days as it is now which necessitated the use of more electrical equipment, which, in turn, created heat. So anyone working from 8:45 in the morning until 7:30 at night could find it to be an exhausting experience. But when we would wrap production, and the staff and the cast and the crew would head for fresh air and home, very often Barbara would say to me "Golden Boy, get your ass into that set dressing room because we’re going to run tomorrow’s work." For an extra half to three quarters of an hour we would rehearse. She wanted me to be good. So if anyone ever needed a term for courtesy and consideration, generosity, and above all, professionalism, they would only need two words. One: Barbara. And the other: Stanwyck.

-William Holden
