“No White Shoes After Labor Day…!”

John Waters satire comedy

So said Beverly Sutphin – actress Kathleen Turner – in John Waters’ 1994 comedy/satire “Serial Mom”.

The lady perpetrating the fashion faux-pas is played by Patty Hearst.  (If you don’t know who Patty Hearst is and what happened in 1974 – just do an internet search for “Patty Hearst SLA” and you’ll get the gist.)

The unofficial fashion rule can be traced back more than 100 years to some snobby millionaires.

 

These days anyone can wear white anytime.

5 Things To Know About ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’

I saw Star Wars in the summer of 1977 and countless times on cable TV. I’ve been to see many of the prequels and sequels; or whatever they are, who can keep track? Once Revenge of the Sith was over, I was kinda over Star Wars.
These subsequent movies may be fine, but they just don’t grab my interest or generate the excitement the original trilogy seemed to have. Solo? He was full of it anyway. 😉
