thank you for the days

if you even have a passing interest in romy schneider then i highly recommend this film. the lead actress is astounding - at times it felt like i was actually watching romy herself. beautifully made, honest, heartbreaking and with warmth for romy too.

spaghetti legs

this IS her in case you were unsure - i watched her perform it on a tv show in a documentary i saw- but i can't find it anywhere on youtube. it's wonderful!

don't look leonie

despite emailing me some years ago complaining, asking me to ask me to take all the photos down of her from my blog - i can't help but re-visit her on blowupdoll (look leonie, no photos this time!).


goodbye girl

currently listening to this on my vinyl copy of the message personnel album (possibly her best album?). i am not wearing a green bobble hat though.
