This is one reason why we love TBJ and SSUWAT
A day or so ago I sent TBJ at Stirred, Straight Up, with a Twist a note telling him about the above clip after I failed to find any still pictures about Ms. Day's stunning coat/gown. And true to form, TBJ found exactly what I was writing about and posted it on his FABULOUS blog, SSUWAT. We love him for these acts of kindness, but I love him because he is a very sweet friend as well. You don't find people with as good a heart that often, and his is pure gold indeed.
Do Not Disturb - Ms. Day's second movie with Aussie Rod Taylor isn't that great of a movie (She plays the wife of an Executive for Poughkeepsie Woolens; the couple get an oversees transfer, and the ignored housewife scores an unwanted French admirer and must get her man back in this seen it before comedy. BORING, but better than Caprice (what isn't?).
ANYHOO, the one scene in this movie that sticks with anyone with a lick of sense is Day, making her entrance at a soirée in this stunning orange sherbet sequined dress. HOWEVER its the way she reveals the dress that is breath taking - her plain jane trench coat is also lined with tangerine sequins as well. And just when you think that it can't get any better, she reveals the back of the dress.
When I saw this as a child of 10 for the first time, all I could think about was that everyone woman, just once in her life, deserves an outfit of this caliber, and the chance to make this type of entrance.
If only life were still this stylish - a world before Crocs. It just leaves you speechless!
