Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Anita O'Day at the Film Forum:


If you're like me and can't get to NYC to see the whole film, you can see the "Sweet Georgia Brown/Tea for Two" clip on YouTube:

I love how O'Day wins over the audience, who start out looking as interested as students at a calculus lecture (when they aren't shoving hot dogs in their mouths) and end up bopping all over the place.

And what a smashing hat!

Who took the photo of her in the hat?

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
