Knit It!

It takes two to make a thing go right
It takes two to make it outta sight
Knit it!

In through the front door,
Once around the back.
Peek through the window,
And off jumps Jack!

Audrey Hepburn

Mae Marsh

Bette Davis

Ann Sheridan

And the Queen Bee of knitting, Ms. Joan Crawford!

On the set of Reunion in France

On the set of Humoresque

On the set of Mildred Pierce

Now if I only I had one of her on the set of The Women. Reportedly while George Cukor filmed Shearer, Crawford sat on the sidelines knitting an afghan with the loudest needles available, until Shearer complained of the distraction to Cukor who then ordered Crawford back to her trailer.

Tonight on TCM!
It's Elvis' birthday and though the man could sing, I preferred he simply stuck to that. Watch his movies at your own risk. ;)


  1. I will never tire of hearing Crawford/Shearer bitch stories. I love it! Passive aggressive noisy knitting versus the ultimate in ego star tantrums. Poor George Cukor. If he hadn't already been gay, I'm sure The Women would have done the job.
