"...Here it is dark, for more I may not vouch." ~E. Wylie


An American living in Leicester, UK. Working on a PhD. in English Studies. This blog is a small oasis for me outside of academia, where I can post pretty things and brilliant words and memories of things past.
Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman reading script from Rally Round the Flag. 1958.
Photographer: Unknown
(Woodward and Newman were, in my opinion, the classiest couple in Hollywoood. Throughout their 50 year marriage (1958-2008, ending with Newman’s death), they used their celebrity for a great many worthwhile causes. In 1988, Newman and Woodward established the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, named for the outlaws in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Located in Ashford, Connecticut, the camp provides services to 20,000 seriously ill children and families free of charge. They established Newman’s Own brand of products in 1982. As of 2010, the franchise has donated in excess of $300 million to charity. These are the kind of celebrities and actors that SHOULD be admired.)
