MUSIC/DVD: September Song & September Affair

The end of summer, a melancholic month - September Song - comes to mind.
"Oh it's a long while from May to December.. Days grow short when you reach September" (composed by Kurt Weil, lyrics Maxwell Anderson) Check it out on YouTube from Billie Holliday, Bing Crosby, Neville Chevalier, & my favourite - Walter Huston. 

How about seeing the 1950's movie which fixed the romanticism of an Alexandrine youth. Only DVD version to be found in Spanish - never mind, Joan Fontaine's sly beauty & Joseph Cotton in 'September Affair' was worth watching after five decades. The roads devoid of traffic in Rome, Naples and Florence, so few cars and open carriages!  

Astonishing how sexy the film is without nudity, or overt bed scenes. 
Brush up on your Spanish!

  1. Thank you for this reminder of a song I love.
    And for the reference to what seems to be a lovely film. Heard about it for the first time.
