I’m looking forward to seeing the film “My One and Only” which has just been released. Set in 1953 and starring Renee Zellweger, Logan Lerman, Kevin Bacon, Eric McCormack & Chris Noth, it tells the story of Ann Deveraux who packs up her two teenage sons and hits the road in search of a new husband after she catches her current one in bed with another woman.
Based on the early adventures of George Hamilton, who’s glamourous mother did a similar thing, the look and style of the film is charming and the eye candy is fine. It promises to be a most enjoyable film.
“My One and Only” is being released by Hopscotch Films and promoted by Caper Creative, who have kindly offered Circa’s readers five double passes to see the film anywhere in Australia that it is showing.
I’ll start you off – my favourite has to be Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, a glossy confection about two adventuring showgirls on their way to Paris. Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell are perfect foils for each other, and never fail to please, and the film features some of MM’s finest musical numbers including “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” and Two Little Girls from Little Rock. Just so you don’t think I’m completely stuck on Marilyn, here’s La Russell in Ain’t There Anyone Here for Love?
Entries close next Wednesday.
