I love those Taschen ad books! I have the 40s volume, but desperately need to get the 1930s one! Wow!

Oh yeah, they're all great! Most of my blog posts are based on them. And I love your name, C.K. Dexter Haven! That's one of my favorite movies. I often remember that line when Tracy says to her ex "You hardly know him" (about her fiancé) and he replies "To hardly know him is to know him well". The whole movie is quotable from start to finish.

I'm a relative latecomer to The Philadelphia Story, but now I love it! I felt that I had to change my username to reflect my blog.

Yes, TPS is so quotable:

"Sometimes, for your own sake, Red, I think you should've stuck to me longer."

"I thought it was for life, but the nice judge gave me a full pardon."

"Aaah, that's the old redhead. No bitterness, no recrimination, just a good swift left to the jaw."
