Miss Ritter if you're nasty.

Which is rather how I'm feeling after a first day at the office. Although more than mildly cheered, as usual, by thinking of this particularly feisty lady.

Who is, I have to say, somebody about whom I never really thought I'd have the opportunity to use the "Décolletage" tag. In the immortal words from Little Shop of Horrors, don't it go to show you never know?


  1. Thelma Ritter. I daresay most people today haven't a clue who she is/was. ::Sigh::

    My favorite line from any of her movies... from "The Misfits." When asked why she has a cast on her arm, she answers that she was celebrating with a girlfriend who just got divorced... and misbehaved. "Sometimes I get so sick of myself."


  2. you want an argument or an answer?

  3. Where I come from this is either a revival meeting or a crap game.

    One of the true character greats.

  4. She gets some truly great bits in with Joanne Woodward in 1964's underrated A New Kind Of Love.

    JW: Why? What's wrong with the way I look?

    TR: What's right?
