After Stuart’s death, John and George used to come and see me in my home. It was actually John’s suggestion. John said, “Can I see where he used to paint?” I said, “Of course, you can.” In that moment, I had to take a picture of them and I just grabbed this old chair and put it there. John was just full of emotion being in the same room where his friend was just painting that he nearly burst out in tears. And George was a bit worried, so I just said to George, “Stand behind him.” You could see how quickly George understood what it was all about: death and being alive. He’d only just turned eighteen and when you look at the picture and see his eyes, they’re so full of protection for John. - Astrid Kirchherr

[Vivien Leigh’s Cleopatra] is smoldering and sensual, wily and treacherous, but she is also intelligent, audacious and courageous. And when destiny turns against her she does not go down whimpering but with pride and glory, looking grand in her regal vestments, looking cool, grave and triumphant.

The New York Times, 1951

Some Like It Hot (1959) dir. Billy Wilder

J: Does that mean you play that very fast music… jazz?

S: Yeah. Real Hot.

J: I guess some like it hot. I personally prefer classical music.
