OK, I am going to have to have a talk with Rain. 
She made this week truly difficult for me with her theme of Tragedies and Melodramas. There are so many directions one can go with this. I mean, I really had to use 
my brain to work on this one. 
OK, I know, stop being so melodramatic about it. (giggle)
Back to theme. I listen to ObsoleteOddity. 
Simply the best tragedies and melodrama historical stories.
So if you have time click on the video below and listen to a very good read. Then go the the link and subscribe. You won't be disappointed.
I also had to show photos of two of my favorite 
actresses of all time.
Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. Two women that made several movies together, some, that were Grammy hits. On screen you would never know that in real life they disliked each other to fullest extent.
This is the quick explanation of their tragic and at times melodramatic hate for one another.
Bette had been jealous of Crawford's affair with Clark Gable, on whom she had a crush, but it was Franchot Tone who the two really fell out over. Tone, who was dating Crawford, was Davis's leading man in Dangerous. Davis fell in love with him, but he married Crawford.
I am not the only one who thinks that some of the best movies they made together turned out so well due to the fact that their emotions were thick with distain for each other. What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? ( 1962)
The Women (1939) Possessed (1931) Mildred Pierce (1945) Sudden Fear (1952) The Letter (1940) Now, Voyager (1942) Deception (1946). If you want a quick view check out this site just click here

I hope I met the requirements with this post.
Have a great day everyone!
Be Safe Out There And Wear A Mask!
Honor and integrity in art, in life.

  2. Interesting on Davis and Crawford Nicole, great post on the theme.

  3. Excellent choice, lots of drama between these two, on and off stage apparently lol,,Hollywood eh’

  4. Eep! Sorry for the challenging challenges did great!!! :)) Interesting about Joan Crawford and Bette Davis...for all the Hollywood trivia I know, I didn't know they had such a feud between can bring out lots of good and bad emotions! My favourite Bette Davis movie is called Another Man's Poison (1951) with Gary Merryl...oh it was good. She was brilliant. I loved Sudden Fear too, I'm a big Jack Palance fan...his cheekbones and jaw were carved from stone lol! Great info!

    Now...Camille Claudel, oh my gosh. You know I've never heard of that YT channel THANK YOU SO MUCH for mentioning it, I am now subscribed. That story is very tragic...poor lady. And interesting that she was "hooking up" with Rodin...see, I know a lot about art, but not necessarily about the artists personal lives, this is intriguing me to learn more about my favourite artists. I'm going to go through all of those videos a little each day, that guy who runs the channel and does the videos is amazing!

  5. Boa tarde Nicole, parabéns pela matéria.

  6. In these days I couldn't think of anything about tragedies and melodramas ... We are living the tragedy with this virus and I'm sure the melodrama will follow!
    But you did a great job!

  7. Wow, dunno if I was mature enough to "play" with someone I really dislike.
    Good post indeed, challenge mastered!

  8. Interesting post. Stay safe, Valerie

  9. Thanks for the video and photo
    Happy Friday

    Thanks for dropping by my blog today


  10. You have chosen a great post on the topic. Class!

  11. It appears I'm once again running behind visiting your blog. I'll be by tomorrow (Sunday) to catch up on what I've missed. At least that's the plan, anyway, Nicole.

  12. Well, evidently you respond well to a challenging challenge ... This was quite an interesting post with a path to more interesting tragedies. Your knowledge of Davis and Crawford is intriguing ... surely you weren't around when they were feuding. I have always liked movies, but never got into the backgrounds of the actors, so this is all news to me ... such fun. Maybe that is something I can do now ... it is never too late, right? Wonderfully done, Nicole ...

  13. You and I share the love for Davis and Crawford. I'm familiar with all the movies you mentioned-I watch them over and over.

  14. Oh goodness! I fell down the ObsoleteOddity rabbit hole--LOL!
    I was always a fan of Bette Davis...and Katherine Hepburn. :)

  15. I recognize the actresses but don´t remember seeing the movies.
    Take care.

  16. Interesting post Nicole! You smashed the challenge.

  17. Well done.
    A very good post for Rains theme.

    All the best Jan
