Café clips: Claudia Cardinale & David Niven

Watch charming David Niven attempting to seduce the beautiful Claudia Cardinale while she lies on a bear skin rug in front of the fireplace, drunk on champagne, telling you about her first zsrafari... frazari... wild animal hunt. Yep, that's a scene you will never forget. A must-see! From The Pink Panther (1963)

Somebody who likes Old sixties movies, that actually made a generation.
Congratulation my lady: for your taste and sense of humour. A gossip about that scene: Claudia being absolutely a non-drinker person, wanted to play the scene. Blake wanted it real. So he placed her waiting in a tittle room, for about 15 minutes. The room had a very smoky fireplace, loaded with "grass" as they called it in the '60. When she noticed being intoxicated, it was too late. Claudia herself reported the funny anedocte in an interview of the eighties. So, the scene portraited an authentically stoned Claudia. Bows!

Wow I did not know about that! Crazy, if it's true :-)
Yeah love old movies. My father showed me Pink Panther, Bergman movies, The Third Man, and a lot of other classics!
I don't think I have ever heard Claudia's real voice. Her voice was always dubbed in the 60's because she couldn't speak English.

Well, they tried to teach english to Sophia in the '50... Better dub Claudia, believe me!!! Besides, there is a lot of very funny stuff of fifties and sixties and it is a pity that younger people hardly has any chance to see them (apart in some satellite channels, late night). Some comedies were really hilarious and portraited a funny world that no longer exist.
I am not blaming today's Hollywood stuff, there is some good modern movies (one is "Crash"), and really dull old stuff. But the "Breakfast at Tiffany's" atmosphere is lost. And "Singing in the rain". And, and, and...
Thanks God we have movies... Ciao.

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this[url="http://xanaxaxa.blogspot.com"].[/url] Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis[url="http://phenne.blogspot.com"],[/url] describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out[url="http://merrychristmascatalog.blogspot.com"].[/url] I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest[url="http://tramadol400.blogspot.com"],[/url] lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor[url="http://bigbreast2.blogspot.com"].[/url] A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over[url="http://ass0parade.blogspot.com"].[/url] I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write[url="http://naruto0xxx.blogspot.com"].[/url] A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing

I always liked the scene with Charles and Princess Dala. I wish they became a couple in the movie.
