You might not believe this about me, but I have a dark side. I love the romanticized ideal of being on the wrong side of the law. The motion picture side of the wrong side of the law. The Gangster side of the law.
I would like to have been a gangster's moll not having to do anything at all but look glamorously slim in beautiful satin gowns at swanky nightclubs and sleeping in until three the next day having only gotten in at two.
Of course my heart would still reside in it's deep-seeded Midwestern values keeping it open to the persuasion of a handsome law abiding copper.
I always look for the moment a bellhop or doorman appears in a scene with their smartly buttoned coat and hat at just the right tilt. "Delivery for you!" The 1930's are my favorite time in our history, and all of my characters reflect this era.
My daughter and I just went to see "Gangster Squad" set in 1930's Los Angles. We were so excited to see her Depression Era dishes, Desert Rose, featured in a breakfast scene and the cutest vintage nursery wallpaper in another. It had little ducks on it just like this sweet little guy.
We had such a fun evening together, but my TSG does not allow ANY talking, and boy do I love to point out the background detail. This move is a MUST SEE for all the wonderful vintage detail.
The performances in "Gangster Squad" by Josh Brolin and Sean Penn are riveting.
And Ryan Gosling as a very dapper cop of the type that make you swoon!
His romance with Emma Stone's character is very sweet. I won't spoil it for you by telling you if they end up together by story's end.
What fun I have had creating my Easter Squad of characters. I absolutely love every one of them, and I hope you do as well!
Thank you so much:
