    Reblogged this on the last drive in and commented:
    Happy Birthday Claire Bloom… ironically enough- we’re watching The Haunting tonight so we’ll see Theo in velvet once again. 18 Years ago , we had our first date watching The Haunting because it was both our favorite films. Wendy’s commentary was from a lighting designers perspective and mine was from loving Gothic classic horror films…. Thanks Claire Bloom for bringing us together 18 years ago today…. Love Joey
