Distraction: Camille

Nothing like a doomed courtesan and a downer of a love story to lift my spirits right up.  As a card carrying gay man, I'm embarrassed to say I had never watched the classic Camille until the other night.  Now I know what all the fuss is about.  Greta Garbo is really good at throwing her head back and Robert Taylor is dreamy even in some rather unflattering multi-pleated, tapered trousers.  Yikes.
