Swing Time (1936)

Some day, when I’m awfully low,

When the world is cold,

I will feel a glow just thinking of you

And the way you look tonight.

It’s as true in today’s Hollywood as it was 70 years ago: There’s nothing as sexy as… Lauren Bacall.
Not just because of how she slinked through her debut film, 1944’s “To Have and Have Not,” with a voice that sounded like whiskey neat and the most come-hither directions ever put on film (“You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve? You just put your lips together and blow”). Nor because of her long hair that seemed to shine even in the darkened corners of noir drama.
It was all that, yes, but it was also a word associated with men: swagger. Bacall had it in spades, and woe to the poor fathead or fall guy who considered her just another dame.New York Daily News

"Just looking at him could make me tremble. When he took my hand in his, the feeling caught me in the pit of my stomach - his hand was warm, protecting, & full of love. When he saw me at the beginning of the day & when he called me on the telephone, his first words were always, "Hello, Baby."

Apparently, in an attempt to paint Michael Brown as anything less than innocent, people have been spreading an image of an armed 17-year-old Joda Cain around the web and claiming that it’s Michael Brown.

Joda Cain is accused of murder in my home state of Oregon, and has literally jack shit to do with the Michael Brown murder in Ferguson, Missouri. THESE ARE NOT THE SAME PEOPLE. Anyone using the above image as “proof” that Michael Brown “deserved” to be shot should be called out for defamation, and promptly thrown down a spiral staircase. 

The bottom photo is the real Michael Brown. He was called a “gentle giant” by friends and family. He was unarmed and innocent, and he was murdered by a police officer after being shot more than seven times at close range. Witnesses, including a friend who was with him at the time of the shooting, all agree that he was doing nothing deserving of such violent actions from the officer who gunned him down.
