Promises, promises (caramba!)

Angie Dickinson quote: "I dress for women. I undress for men." Link to elevator scene from Brian de Palma's "Dressed to Kill" which in 1980 was mad elegant horror. Oh - Dickinson and Bacharach were married when they both were young, famous, rich and beautiful.

I swear on all that is holy to me that I will complete my Christopher Russell post. I’ll post about David Horvitz. (Is David Horvitz the Ron Popeil of 21st Century contemporary art?) I have more to tell and images for Nicholas Grider’s curation project at Elephant. Um, um, um, I’ll even make stuff up! Who know what fun we’ll have?

This post is titled after a Burt Bacharach song from a Broadway musical. Never saw the musical, did see Billy Wilder’s movie predecessor with Jack Lemon and Shirley MacLaine “The Apartment” when I was a kid. Caramba was one of my words then.

Jerry Orbach from the cast album.

Dionne Warwick from everybody’s life in the 1960s and 1970s.

Burt Bacharach. Picture it. Handsome him, beautiful Angie, together driving the Sunset Strip in a Rolls convertible. Life is but a dream...
