Remembering Mukesh (Singer) on his Birth Anniversary 🙏🙏💛💛
A singer in a class of his own, Mukesh was ranked, along with Mohammad Rafi and Kishore Kumar, as one of the greatest male playback singers in Bollywood history. However, his position was unique - while Rafi was perfection incarnate and Kumar was the astonishing yodeller, Mukesh was that man in a bar who would pour you a drink and would sing you a song for friendships' sake. His voice held a haunting, melancholic quality that could reach into your soul and move you to tears. 😫😫💗💗
Mukesh was, is and will be the only Bollywood singer to possess a golden voice... 💝💝
" Dam Bhar Joh Udhar Muh Phere " is my favorite of Mukesh ji ❤️❤️ his voice always makes my mood pleasant 🤗🤗 Enjoy this lovely track from "Awaara (1951)" 💓💓
Ingrid and Georg Rydberg in publicity photos for ”Dollar” (1938)
The plot of this movie is rather absurd, but it is entertaining and Ingrid’s character (which she plays perfectly) is absolutely hilarious. it’s about three married couples who all have emotional affairs with each other’s partners and don’t bother hiding it that well.
Quote: ”Tig och ljug för husfridens skull!” (How could I translate that? Shut up and lie for the sake of domestic peace, or something like that. Oh, well)
The Off Broadway crew decked in B&W in honor of Ken (manager, not pictured) and his fabulous original film noir play “The Big Sleep of Phillip Marlowe”. The entire set, costumes, wigs and make up all done in B&W. Sharp and hilarious with 👏👏👏👏👏reviews. If you’re in Albuquerque get there tonight or Sunday before she’s gone. Ken’s “genius” is on full display! #filmnoir#playwright#play#comedy#drag#gumshoeproductions#oldmovies#detective#femmefatale
I’m a huge fan of Bette Davis, and I’ve read a few biographies of her. Now I’m reading recountings from the assistant she had toward the end of her life. She was an amazing, active person and maintained her same outgoing, unique personality all the way through times that were the toughest of the tough. She is inspiring.
