BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID | BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE 1969 CLASSIC
According to William Goldman, when he first wrote the script and sent it out for consideration, only one studio wanted to buy it, and that was with the proviso that the two lead characters did not flee to South America. When Goldman protested that that was what had happened, the studio head responded, “I don’t give a shit. All I know is John Wayne don’t run away.” Goldman rewrote the script, “didn’t change it more than a few pages, and subsequently found that every studio wanted it.”
William Goldman said that many young people saw the super posse in ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,’ as a metaphor for the government and authority during the years of anti-war protests. He said his students said the similarity lay in the relentlessness by which both “would hunt you down.”Continue reading

RIP OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN | GREASE THE MOVIE WAS A BIG DAMN DEAL IN 1978, AND STILL IS!
In 2019 Julien’s Auctions organized a ‘Grease’ auction. Among the 500 items offered-up for auction were the hot black leather jacket, and skin tight leather pants worn by ‘Sandy,’ in the legendary finale scene. Much of the proceeds were donated to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute, created by the actress herself as she has battled breast cancer since 1992. The total sale of those two pieces alone fetched $405,700 dollars, or about 360,000 euros. Spanx founder Sara Blakely bought the pants.Continue reading

GREY T-SHIRTS MATTER | THE UNSUNG HERO: SUPER-SOFT HEATHER GREY TRI-BLEND TEES
CRAIG VON SCHROEDER / CO-FOUNDER OF COMMONWEALTH PROPER / PHL – ATL – PITT WEARING OUR “FTW – SCREAMIN’ EAGLE T-SHIRT” IN HEATHER GREY, TRI-BLEND JERSEY
The Selvedge Yard definitely sells a lot more black tees than any other color. I get it. I love black too. When I’m not wearing a black tee , I’m wearing a Heather Grey Tri-blend T-shirt. It’s a perfect mid-weight 50/25/25 blend of poly / combed ring-spun cotton / rayon knit that reduces shrinking, and is super-soft.
I like how Tri-blend tees age with wear, getting softer with each wash and gradually breaking down to feel perfectly aged like your coveted, old vintage poly / cotton blend gym shirt.

Serge Gainsbourg was watching her performance of his “Harley-Davidson” song from the wings. She included “Harley-Davidson” as one of 15 songs on her 1968 album Brigitte Bardot Show.

COOL HAND LUKE BEHIND THE SCENES 2 | “MY SWEET LUCILLE,” THE CAR WASHING GODDESS
In an interview aired on TCM, George Kennedy discussed how Joy Harmon’s iconic car washing scene was originally scheduled for half a day, and how that shoot ended up taking 3 days. Kennedy laughed and said, “Somewhere…there’s 80,000 feet of film with Joy Harmon washing that car!”
When Joy Harmon filmed the scene in which the men watch her wash her car, she had no idea how suggestive it was. It never occurred to her until she saw it in the theater. “I just figured it was washing the car. I’ve always been naive and innocent,” she said. “I was acting and not trying to be sexy. Maybe that’s why the scene played so well. After seeing it at the premiere, I was a bit embarrassed.”Continue reading
