fall vibes part 2

Slowly but surely, more fall vibes!
1. Grease

2. Bye Bye Birdie
I watched this ALL THE TIME when I was little and I took a break for years and when I rewatched a couple weeks ago all the lines were still popping into my head as they said them. When I have kids I am going to show them Bye Bye Birdie all the time so I can make them perform it for me whenever I damn well please! It'll be like a talking and breathing Netflix Instant, whose poop I have to clean up. Actually, that sounds way less fun that actual Netflix Instant. I'm going to raise my children in a vacuum so they never talk, ever.
Spencer's mom once told me during one of our showtunes singing sessions that they filmed the closing one like a year after the first, which is why Ann-Margaret's voice is so much less whiny, and that the director had to make it on his own money because the producers didn't think it was a good idea, then once he showed it to them they were like OMG you're so right here's the money you spent on this! And then Janet Leigh was SO PISSED because in the stage version Rosie is the star, not Kim. ZOMG hot gossip from 50 years ago!!!!!!

The whole movie is pretty and weird, but the Telephone Hour is the BEST. Kim MacAfee and Hugo Peabody get pinned and all of a sudden Sweet Apple, Ohio is like, a HUGE CITY full of HOT GOSSIP FROM 50 YEARS AGO.
Plus I love how obviously like, 25 Ann-Margaret is in this, while Ursula plays the twerpy little 16 year old she really is. This song was so misleading.

3. The Outsiders

4. Cry-Baby

5. Female Trouble

6. Alfred Hitchcock

7. Alex Prager
The girl on the left looks like the girl in Telephone Hour.

8. Cindy Sherman's Untitled Film Stills

9. Hunx and his Punx

10. "Our Deal"
Best Coast is normally reserved for summer, but this video fits fall. For some reason the video buffers weird and I have not the patience for weird buffering, nor do I feel indifference towards carpal tunnel, so I didn't screencap it. You just have to WATCH it instead. Life is hard, kids! Welcome to the real world!
(Chloe Moretz would be the perfect best friend because she would totally kick the ass of anyone who is annoying you or, I don't know, killing your other friend in a gang fight.)
Lastly, do you like candy? Do you like Parks and Recreation? Amy Poehler? Aubrey Plaza? Rashida Jones? Chris Pratt's breathing? Because they made us a really sweet video at Rookie. It is here! Also, I wrote my editor's letter for October, styled a shoot of angsty yearbook photos, wrote about first encounters with the male gaze, and, under my pseudonym Chill McChillson, tips on middle skool d@t!ng.

YESSSSSSSS ALL OF THIS! Love it love it love it. I can't believe I wasn't a teen in the late 1950's early 60's, fashion wise of course (the whole world sucked except for the clothes.) And Female Trouble is just too good. Also, Grease's "Beauty School Dropout" scene is one of my favorite movie musical scenes EVAH. Pink hair!

Heather said...

You're killing me with this little list. Cherry in the Outsiders and Tippi Hedren and Dawn Davenport and Divine and, sheesh, it's just a lot. And so, so good.

Jamie Keiles said...

I love this post! I was raised watching these movies and wish I could raise my kids to re-enact the scenes...although at the same time...not so much. I just imagine tantrums and me turning into a crazed stage mom...But none the less LOVE all these movies and your choice of stills.

TELL YA WHAT said...

ANN-MARGARET, WHAT A BABE! So goood, although I more imagine forcing my kids to perform Sound of Music and the Labyrinth. And I gotta say, Cry Baby made me sick to my stomach when I watched as a young teen. Something about the voices and the faces, I swore off John Waters for a long time, but your stills of it are easy on the eyes (and belly). Perhaps, I am a little PG, PG-13 at times, unless its French, then all censor gloves are off.

Elizabeth said...

Oh man, I have to say hate that opening Bye Bye Birdie sequence but love so much the Telephone Hour. How does everyone know so instantaneously? Imagine if they had the internet!

Love you blog, and I'm 22!

Hmmm, is it bad that I'd barely heard of Bye Bye Birdie before this? I guess it probably is...
Great post as per usual anyway - I particularly liked the picture of the girl with the coke beaker, her eyelashes are heartbreakingly perfect :)

zoomslow said...

I was never much of a one (other than Hitchcock) for this period’s: colours, style, hair, music, makeup etc. But as usual your powers of persuasion are proving too much! A Jedi mind trick? (The force is strong in you, Tavi.)

P.S Your writing and drawing make me very happy <33

Pashupati said...

I've been doing that for a while when watching stuffs on my computer: screencap-ing these scenes when characters are holding old/interesting telephones.
One day, I'll print them to make posters.
For now, I only have scenes from Whiz Kids' episodes, Wargames and Prêt-à-Porter, but I really *need* to see Bye Bye Birdie.
(awesome list for procrastinating but still feeling great in the moment!)

ashley said...

Let's bring ponytails back . . . I've already got those Sandy bangs (and hey! don't you?).

Been listening/watching that Best Coast video for days. HUGE inspiration right now.

mmh, you might enjoy Wild At Heart's outré, sarcastic take on this kind of style. and of course the early Todd Solondz.

luvgmt.com said...

Female Trouble will always be the best John Water movie, imo. Such great dark humor in it.

Have you seen American Graffiti and Wanderers yet? More 50s/early 60s nostalgia movies that you might enjoy : ).
