Have you ever seen the Documentary that Maxamiilian Schell did on her----she refused to be on Camera but spoke with him and it was all recorded. FASCINATING!
Also her daughter, Maria Riva's book about her---quite scathing, actually. A strange childhood with men and women running through their life....!
I love the clip you chose....I rarely hear this song at all....!
I love that you styled yourself on her, and I bet you are right that you got that Stcking Contract because of it! That day I saw her on the street, her legs looked exactly as you described in her Elegant Ladies Suit....and High Heels....!
I wish that I could have met her, don't you...How lucky your friend was to get to spend some time with her....!

Naomi: no I haven't seem the documentary nor read her daughter's book . I gathered it was a bit harsh so didn't read it.
