Today’s overcast sky and drop from yesterday’s record 80 degrees to today’s mid-40s reminds me of similar weather during our November Hot Springs, Arkansas visit. Sometimes an overcast sky can make for a peaceful, placid picture. Until the geese get moving, that is.
Autumn leaves littered the streets, where a green banner proclaimed a Chili Cook-Off, of which we later partook.
Methinks these high school twins could pass for young Clift body doubles, especially the one in the bolo tie. For those not familiar with Clift, he was a Method actor in the 1950s and 60s, starring in films such as The Misfits with Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable, in their last screen roles. Clift himself would die five years after the movie’s release.
Despite the aquiline nose and caterpillar eyebrows, Clift was a good-looking man. Too pretty, in fact. If the charms of the luscious Liz Taylor couldn’t challenge his sexuality, I guess no one could.
Because dang–look at her.
