They're honoring Jean Harlow this week on AMC, so we were privileged to catch my favorite movie of all time last evening and watch it in bed. Dinner at Eight is one of my self-prescribed Gay Essentials - it includes a blonde bombshell (Harlow), a drag queen (Marie Dressler), a put-upon hostess (Billie Burke) and enough over-the-top camp acting to fill a pink Hostess Sno-Ball that would cover Times Square.
If you haven't seen it - it's absolute genius. And Harlow was such a talented comedienne. It's shame we lost her so young.
