‘1001 Movies Challenge’ Sum-Up: Part 2

I know what you’re thinking. That I’m being careful not to challenge myself too much. The fact is none of the ‘challenge’ movies I watched in the past 30 days has inspired me very much.

What a shame it would be to miss this one though!

And not only for her looks. She’s also a very well written character and very well played. Scandalous and utterly original for its times

But first thing first..
