Women in Film

...and what do "Lost" and Dickens have in common?

Although standards of beauty change with the passage of time, there are still some amazingly lovely ladies in this video. (Hat tip to Angela Hunt of A Life in Pages.)

*(The actresses pictured are listed at the bottom of this post, if you're curious.)

"Our Mutual Friend" and "Lost"...

Of particular interest if you're a "Lost" fan: Sherry of Semicolon is taking part in a reading project made up of books referenced in the show.

Sherry says of Dickens' "Our Mutual Friend":

"...I would suggest that Desmond read it sooner rather than later. Wanting a certain book to be the last one you read before your death is all poetic and romantic-sounding, but the plan has some practical difficulties. How do you decide when death is imminent but far enough away to give you time to finish a Dickens tome before it’s too late?"

Sherry's review of "Our Mutual Friend" is here.
