I was scrolling through my Media Library, looking for a picture I was sure I had from The Invisible Man starring Claude Rains. Then I found this lovely shot of Joan Crawford in Straitjacket, which we watched earlier. I said this morning that Steve and I were going to spend the day “chillaxing,” a word I had never actually used in a conversation before. Then I noted that chillaxing would be best enjoyed with an actual ax.
Here’s my boy Claude, with the lovely Gloria Stuart. The movie also features another favorite of ours, Una O’Connor.
I couldn’t find Una, but here’s another picture of Joan in Straitjacket. You may have guessed by now this is going to be a particularly foolish Monstrous Monday post. I only feel happy to be posting on Monday and not early Tuesday morning.
We had a fun weekend, and I took today off for rest and recovery. I don’t know how wisely I used my time, but we have enjoyed watching a few Halloween movies.
Now that my murder mystery is over, I hope to get back to more and better writing. Starting with tomorrow’s blog post.
