So I know I’m about a month late, but I found ring blanks and wanted to finish them before I opened up (which will be [fingers crossed] sometime this coming week).
Unfortunately, Michael’s only seems to carry 4 of these ring blanks at a time, and hasn’t replenished their stock yet. So, since I want to keep one for myself, I have three to sell for now; two of the Leslie Howard design ones (pictured below) and one Anthony Andrews design one (using the red wax seal image below). As soon as I can get more blanks, I’ll make more rings, so let me know which of the two you would like to see more of.
Since none of the movies or plays mention Percy and Marguerite’s children (with the exception of seson 2 of the mini-series, which I refuse to acknowledge the existence of [or rather, the relevence of the existence of]), I can’t really do a “Happy Father’s Day” post, so I’ll do a poll instead.
Who is your favorite Sir Percy?
Leslie Howard, Barry K. Barnes, David Niven, Anthony Andrews, Richard E. Grant, Douglas Sills, or someone else?
Happy Birthday Olivia de Havilland
Today is the birthday of one of my all time favorite actresses, Olivia de Havilland. She turned 95 today, and she’s still beautiful!
But, to make it Pimpernel related, I’m posting a link to the Lux Radio Theater 1938 broadcast of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Lux Radio Theater was a radio show that would do half or one hour radio versions of new movies that had come out in order to promote them. In this broadcast, Olivia de Havilland replaces Merle Oberon, and joins her future Gone With the Wind costar Leslie Howard to bring The Scarlet Pimpernel to radio audiences across the country.
And she does it with a French accent!
Wow, so in looking for good clips to use for gifs of the 1930s Leslie Howard movie, I found out that my DVD copy is HORRIBLY EDITED! There are entire scenes missing from it!!!! And these scenes I never saw add so much!!!!!!!
For those of you out there who haven’t seen it, or like me, want to make sure you actually have seen the whole thing, here it is.
