It bills itself as a "spoof" of 50s horror films, not a parody, which is perhaps appropriate- it doesn't dig deeper into its not-very-deep-to-begin-with source material than, say, a recent Saturday Night Live sketch, and the humor plateaus around that level, too. Kimmel's music and lyrics are workmanlike and serviceable; they do what they need to do, but not much else.The ballads are "Somewhere that's Green" without the irony. The melodies of the two songs are almost entirely different, and it's merely the chord pattern and lyrical structure that make the two songs seem so similar. Kimmel purposefully plagiarized David Shire's song, or in any way accuse him of actual song theft.
The "Jean Harlow: Hollywood's First Blond Bombshell," exhibit, will offer a rare and intimate look into the personal and professional life of, arguably, one of the greatest sex symbols of all time, including the never-before-publically-seen Tino Costa life-size painting of Jean Harlow that was commissioned by her mother, Jean Bello and hung in her home after Harlow's death.There’s acting (she trained at Bristol Old Vic), two production companies (1998 crime film Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels was her biggest hit), dog-breeding, wine-making, olive oil and, of course, a heap of work for ‘charidee’.Trudie, it turns out, is keen on telling people what they should and shouldn’t do with their time.She spent 'at least ,000' on monthly rent for a Manhattan-based apartment in which to entertain clients, as the sorts of clients she was pulling in were hardly going to travel to cheaper areas like Brooklyn or Queens.'What I know now is that guys want to know the women they’re f*****g. sometimes have cute ponytails and big smiles, but guys think they’re sort of selfish and bitchy, too.'Svetlana made herself available 12 hours a day, from noon until midnight, 'rarely' drank, 'never' took drugs, 'always' used condoms and demanded payment in advance - although, she says, it's best to pretend the envelope 'doesn't exist.'She made it a rule never to ask men about their families, but remarks that it's surprising how often they 'brag' about their kids.Producer and entrepreneur, Howard Hughes, is credited with discovering many of Hollywood's golden age leading ladies, but Harlow was his first.
