What A Way To Go!


I LOVE this movie - I have ever since I saw it for the first time. When I found that it was available on DVD, I had to get one for my sister for Christmas - and one for myself. The costumes by the fabulous Edith Head, the sets - the stars!!

Who could ask for more than to have Gene Kelly, Dick Van Dyke, Dean Martin, Paul Newman, Bob Cummings, Robert Mitchum, and the fantastic Shirley MacLaine all in one luscious film?

I love it!

We watched it on New Year's Eve. That cute Bob Cummings always did make my heart flutter. He was into healthy eating and execise back when everyone else was smoking and drinking up a storm. What a wonderful cast of handsome men!!! And I am so glad that they didn't really hit oil in the end, but I hope the oil company paid for the cleanup and they got their field back in good shape for planting. Thank you so much. Love T

I've loved this movie forever! It defined the summer I was 9 years old, I probably watched it ever day.

Oh my gosh! I don't think I've ever heard of this movie--which makes me feel very left out! I love all of the actors in it, too! I will have to see if I can get it on my NetFlix list. Thanks for bringing it to my attention ;-)

Heidi, it was so very lovely to see you a few weeks back--you looked great! Wish we could've had a little more time, but hey, I'll take what I can get. Love ya! Kari
