Hi everyone! I'm Sally from Flying Down to Hollywood. Emma needed a little bit more time to rest up with the baby before coming back to the blog so she asked me to do a little guest post.
My blog is mainly about old movies (although I do throw in the occasional contemporary film as well). Since Emma informed me that she usually likes to use Sunday posts to concentrate on something music-related, I thought I'd talk about one of my absolute favorite singers in classic film. Her name is Fran Jeffries. She's most famous for the song that I'm going to embed below - "Meglio Stasera" from The Pink Panther. This is one of the few renditions of this song in Italian and I'm not sure why more people don't do the song in Italian. The English translation isn't (in my opinion) all that terrific. But, who knows?
So, here is her well-known song:
and here is one of her lesser-known songs, "Sex and the Single Girl" from Sex and the Single Girl with Tony Curtis and Natalie Wood.
So there you have it. Fran Jeffries. One of my all-time favorite singers in film. And, on a slightly unrelated note, how 60's-fabulous are her outfits? I love them! Both of them! I have no earthly clue where or when I'd wear that two-piece outfit, but I don't care. I want it anyway!
I hope you guys like Fran Jeffries as much as I do! And, Emma, I hope you're having a simply marvelous time with your little one!
