 I just love looking at behind the scenes photos of films and tv shows because it gives a rare glimpse into what it was like to make a story come to life.  In a time before cell phones and social media, if we were lucky someone was walking around with a camera taking behind the scenes photos in order to document what was happening while making a film or tv show.

Here are a few photos that give a behind the scenes look at Jacques Demy's, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964). You can also read my review on this film HERE.

Do you enjoy looking a behind the scenes photos of films or tv shows?

Classic Cinema Spotlight: The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964)

April 26, 2022

They say April showers bring May flowers. Every time April comes running around I think of the film, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964). This film makes me think about the colors of spring and the rain that brings all the color to life around me. It stars Catherine Deneuve as Geneviève Emery who is the only child of a single mother. Her mother owns and runs an umbrella shop where Geneviève also works. 

Geneviève begins to date a dashing, young man named Guy Foucher (played by the late Nino Castelnuovo)who is also a auto mechanic who cares for his bedridden aunt. Geneviève's mother does not support their relationship but Geneviève and Guy are deeply in love. In the film we hear them sing to one another about their love and devotion to each other. It seems nothing would tear them about until Guy is drafted to serve in the Algerian War. 

Time passes and Geneviève's devotion to Guy never wavers even after she realizes she is carrying his child. Her mother believes that waiting for Guy will prove to be futile so she encourages Geneviève to marry a man named Roland Cassard who is a wealthy jeweler. Geneviève agrees to marry him and when Guy returns he is devastated to learn about her marriage. Guy has difficulties returning back to civilian life but a girl he once knew named Madeleine, helps him to get back one is feet. 

A few years pass when Geneviève comes across Guy at a American styled gas station that he owns and runs with his wife Madeleine and his son Françoise. Years ago at the height of their love to one another both Geneviève and Guy promised they would name their first child Françoise. It is a promise they both kept but with a much different outcome. I will save the ending for you to discover on your own.

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964) is a visually stunning film paired with gorgeous colors and costumes. What makes this film so unique is not only the aesthetic but also that all of the dialogue in this film is sung. Not one spoken word can be heard, only the voices of the characters through lyrics in the form of causal conversation. 

 Jacques Demy who directed this film gifts us a distinctive look at youth, love, and romance.  He shows us both the magical side of young love and the harshness of the realities in life all within a scenery of dreamy pastel colors, lyrical dialogue, and the beauty that is Catherine Deneuve.

5 Catherine Deneuve Film Recommendations

April 25, 2022

A Vintage Nerd, Vintage Blog, 5 Catherine Deneuve Film Recommendations, Classic Film Blog, Catherine Deneuve Movies, Old Hollywood Blog

When I first saw Catherine Deneuve in a film I thought she was the most ethereal actress I have ever seen. Deneuve is extremely beautiful but she is also a breathtaking actress. Deneuve has acted in films that stay with you for days to come and films that make you want to revisit them again and again.

Here are my five favorite Catherine Deneuve films. Many of her films are in her native language of French but they are worth watching with subtitles in case you don't know French. I find a lot is lost when you watch a film or television show that is dubbed. 

These five film recommendations will leave you saddened, moved, bewildered, inspired, and haunted. Have you ever watched any of these films? What foreign language films do you prefer to watch?

Gratitude Turns What We Have Into Enough

April 22, 2022

Easter is a season of renewal for many around the world. This Easter season my family and I were reminded about the idea of gratitude. We were able to spend the weekend together just the five of us doing things together that we love to do. That doesn't happen as often as we would like. During that time we spent together we were all reminded how important it is to be thankful for what you have. 

That being together is more than enough. That quality should always supersede quantity.  And a reminder that gratitude turns what we have into enough.

Be Inspired: Keeping Yourself Going

April 14, 2022

A Vintage Nerd, Vintage Blog, Retro Lifestyle Blog, J Crew Jean Overalls, How to wear a beret, Jackson Hole Diner, Retro Diners in New York

Keeping yourself going can be a tricky thing. Going into work everyday, commuting to and from places, dealing with bills, balancing worries and challenges, or raising a family. Life is stressful, full, and busy. When do you think about the things you want to accomplish for yourself your goals and dreams can seem daunting and impossible to achieve. 

What always kept me going since I was a kid was having big dreams and goals. Despite my daily challenges, my dreams got me up in the morning and kept me going. As I have gotten older I have learned  that anything is possible but it can be difficult to keep dreams alive when you're so weary from all the things life throws at you. Whether you're tired physically, spiritually, emotionally, or mentally-your dreams can really seem far to reach. The important thing is to be aware of your struggles and find healthy ways to work through them. 

 Finding ways to keep yourself going is essential. Those dreams and goals you have are just as important as all the other things going on in your life. As impossible as some of my own personal goals seem, I do believe they will happen. How they will happen is mystery to me but believing that they will happen is sometimes enough to get me through the tough days. 

Whatever it is you want out of life, don't give up and don't stop. Audrey Hepburn famously said, "Nothing is impossible, the word itself says I'm possible." 

Adding to My Film Studies Book Stash

You know I love good book. Anything having to do with Old Hollywood is usually my jam. Since the summer I have been collecting a variety of autobiographies and biographies to add to my personal film studies program that I am working on (albeit slowly) by myself. I added some more books to my stash that I wanted to share with you all in case you were looking for some good books to read. I bought them all used and it was a "buy three get one free" deal and I couldn't resist. I don't mind owning used books especially if they are in good condition. 

I typically score my Old Hollywood books on Amazon or Ebay. Another great book source is the Larry Edmunds Bookshop in California. Sometimes they even sell Old Hollywood themed books that have been autographed by the author which I think is really neat. I have loads of books that I will be reviewing and sharing soon on my blog but if you want to find some Old Hollywood books you can shop HERE at the Larry Edmunds shop. It is a small business bookstore that has been around since 1938.

What do you think of my latest stash of Old Hollywood themed books? Are there any autobiographies or biographies that you have read and loved that you would like to recommend to me? 

The Twilight Zone Inspiration: Time Enough at Last

March 30, 2022
A Vintage Nerd, The Twilight Zone, Twilight Zone Inspiration, Rod Serling, Time Enough At Last, Burgess Meredith, Vintage Blog, Retro Lifestyle Blog, Classic Film Blog

"Time Enough at Last" is the 8th of Season One of The Twilight Zone. It stars the amazing Burgess Meredith as Henry Bemis who is bank teller and bookworm. Bemis is easily distracted by the books he is reading which often leads him to not being the best bank teller. His passion for books can be seen as a hobby or a passion or even an obsession. Bemis is the ultimate book nerd.

What Bemis wants more than anything is more time to read. The fewer the obstacles that get in the way of reading more books the better. Bemis usually takes his lunch breaks in the bank vault so that he will not be distracted. While in the vault he reads a newspaper that says, "H-Bomb Capable of Total Destruction", moments later a huge explosion happens outside. When Bemis recovers from the explosion he leaves what is left of his bank and quickly realizes that the world around him has been destroyed. 

Bemis is devastated at the prospect of being alone forever until he discovers that the local library still has books that have not been destroyed. Realizing that he now has all the time in the world to read all the books he wants without responsibilities or distractions, he begins to collect them. Right when he bends over to pick up his first book to read he trips and falls breaking his glasses. When he picks up his glasses they are completely broken. Poor Bemis begins to cry because he is blind without his glasses and now not only is he alone but can never read a book again.

This episode is the definition of bittersweet. The idea of being so close to having the thing you want most in this world and having that thing being taken away so easily and quickly. Henry Bemis's story is a cautionary tale about being careful about what we wish for but also a reminder about the difference between solitude and loneliness. All Bemis wanted was enough time and solitude to read the books he wanted to read but with the world destroyed and his inability to read he is left in sheer loneliness.

This Boriqua's Thoughts on West Side Story (2021)

March 29, 2022


I am going to start this review by saying this post contains thoughts on this film that will reveal spoilers. This film is a reimagining and not a remake of  the 1961 film version of West Side Story . This reimagining was inspired by the 1957 stage production.

I felt invested in the 1961 film version when I was a little girl just as much as I felt invested in this reimagining. To be Puerto Rican and born and raised in Manhattan, I felt a keen connection to the story and its music. To be honest I wasn't going to give this film a chance at all because I love the West Side Story 1961 so much. That is until I realized that I couldn't judge a film I haven't seen. 

I ended up seeing West Side Story (2021) twice in the movie theater and brought my children with me. I wanted them to see Latinos in that magnitude in a big movie telling this iconic tragic tale. And this film did not disappoint. There are so many things that took me by surprise and left me in wonder. 

Things I Appreciated As a New York Puerto Rican:

  • Bernardo using Puerto Rican slang words
  • Many scenes being filmed in Washington Heights
  • Every single scene Valentina is in
  • Valentina singing "Somewhere"
  • The colors the Jets and Sharks wore-the Sharks were bright yellow, red, and maroon 
  • All the Spanish spoken had no English subtitles
  • The realism of Anita telling Maria you will have to leave with Tony and never come back
  • Seeing the Puerto Rican flag in many scenes which is important to the culture because they were not allowed to show their flag in public until 1952

Things That Caught Me By Surprise:

  • The Sharks singing the Puerto Rican National Anthem in front of the Jets and cops
  • The Jets understanding that Puerto Rico isn't a country or an American state
  • The Jets acknowledging that Puerto Rican's are Americans
  • The Jets referring to Anita as black and calling her derogatory names
  • Graziella standing up for Anita and screaming at the Jets to try and protect her
  • Anybodys clearly representing that she doesn't want to be a girl but a boy
  • Anybodys channeling her own concerns being in a woman body and tells Anita not to enter Doc's store
  • Tony climbing up the fire escape to Maria 
  • Riff tearing up the moment he was stabbed and saying to Tony"It's going to be okay"
  • Maria and Tony having their dance behind the bleachers, making it more realistic than defying everyone and dancing in front of them
  • Maria and Tony going on an actual date
  • Maria and Tony going to the Cloisters in upper Manhattan
  • Maria having a job being a night cleaning woman in a shop
  • Maria going in for a kiss a few moment after meeting Tony
  • The derogatory term "Spic" being used to call the Puerto Ricans
  • Lieutenant Schrank telling the Jets that they were "the last of the can't make it Caucasian's"

Things That Disappointed Me:
  • Anita and Bernardo living together unmarried-would never happened in that time publicly
  • Maria, Bernardo, and Anita's Puerto Rican accents. They were good but I found supporting actors and background actors had a better understanding of a Puerto Rican accent than the main characters
  • How fast Maria moved on Tony which showed her to be strong willed but also depicted her as a fast girl which would have been looked down on in her community
I honestly thought my disappointed list would be so much longer but I cannot think of more than what I have shared. I think if the 1961 version and the 2021 reimagining were put together it would be the perfect depiction of that time and place in New York City but as it is this film was a lot more than I though it would be. It really is beautiful. Ariana DeBose's rendition of Anita is refreshing and powerful. Her Oscar is well deserved. 

The best lesson I learned from watching this film is to give films that I might not think I would like for whatever reason, a chance. I took the chance with this film and I am so grateful that I did. It felt empowering to see my culture being represented in a big film like this one. I hope there will be more in the future because representation really does matter and we all deserve to be seen.

Classic Film Spotlight: A Warm December (1973)

March 28, 2022
A Vintage Nerd, Vintage Blog, A Warm December, Sidney Poitier, Esther Anderson, Classic Romance Films, Retro Lifestyle Blog

When people think of the late Sidney Poitier's work they usually think about To Sir, with Love (1967) or Guess Who's Coming  To Dinner (1967). While these two films are some of the best from the 1960's, Poitier also made some important films in the 1970's. A Warm December (1973) is one of those films. It stars Poitier who also directs this film, as Dr. Matt Younger, a widow with a young daughter.  The film begins with Dr. Younger and his daughter traveling to England for a month long vacation. Esther Anderson also costars as Catherine Oswandu who is the niece of an African Ambassador named George Oswandu. Catherine is England because she is involved in negotiations with the Soviet Union to build a vital hydroelectric project in her country. Catherine has an air of mystery around her that fascinates Dr. Younger and for a while they play a cat and mouse game with one another. 

While Dr. Younger (Poitier) attempts to figure out the mysterious Catherine (Anderson), secrets are uncovered about Catherine that leads each of them to decide whether or not they should pursue their attraction to one another. This film has some Love Story (1970) elements to it but it is more of an unspoken or rather a delicately spoken reality to life and love that makes this film so special. There is an intelligence and grace about Catherine that even makes the viewer fall in love with her.

This film takes on the subject of love in a mature and adult manner that is drama free and completely refreshing to watch. There is so much kindness, respect, and admiration shared between the two main characters of Dr. Younger and Catherine that is so nice to see in a film. Poitier was a man who lived his life as gracefully as he could. I feel that this film really shines on his capacity to see life and love in a way that can remind us of the gifts that love can bring despite the final outcome. A Warm December (1973) is a beautiful film that reminds us that it doesn't matter how long we have loved someone, what matters is that we loved.

My Favorite Spring Transition Piece

March 16, 2022

A Vintage Nerd, Vintage Fashion, Vintage Capes, Vintage Blog, Vintage Fashion Blog, Spring Transition Fashion

Through the years of wearing vintage and retro fashions I have found one piece that has become a spring staple of mine. The weather between winter and spring usually fluctuates with sunny days paired with chilly wind. The weather isn't too cold for a coat anymore but it isn't warm enough for a cardigan either. Let me introduce you to my favorite spring transition piece, the cape.

The cape has been used in all lengths, fabrics, and colors through the entirety of the last century. In the 1930's women's capes were cropped and in the 1960's they had pockets. In the 1950's women's capes came with belts and in the 1970's they were knitted. Whether you choose to buy true vintage or vintage inspired women's capes, a cape can keep you warm without having you sweat which is the goal during the winter to spring weather transitions.

My favorite kind of capes have pockets, keep me warm, look stylish, and feel comfortable. It's the perfect spring fashion transition piece that allows you to not feel overheated with a big coat anymore and yet keep you warm when the chilly breeze comes through. They go great with casual jeans and look super cute with dresses. The cape is versatile which is an important because it can be used with so many different outfits sporadically throughout the year. I've worn my capes through all the seasons but it has become my favorite spring transition piece because it does the job that coats and cardigans can't do when the weather is shifting from cold to warmer days.

What is your favorite spring transition piece? If you are interested in reading about my favorite fall transition piece you can read all about it HERE.

Happy Wearing What I Wear

February 15, 2022
A Vintage Nerd, Retro Fashion Blog, Plus Size Retro Fashion, Vintage Blogger, Modcloth Heart Cardigan, Unique Vintage Beret, J Crew Jean Overalls, Vintage Inspired Fashion

One of the things I have learned through the years as a vintage blogger is that you should wear what you what you love. Whether its true vintage from head to toe, reproduction vintage, or retro inspired fashion, whatever makes you feel comfortable and good is what you should be wearing. In the past eleven years as a blogger I have gone from true vintage to reproduction to retro inspired. I love wearing vintage but pieces in the style I like are harder to come by these days. Some days I might wear reproduction with vintage accessories and other days retro inspired pieces from head to toe. 

One thing is for sure, I am happy wearing what I wear. When I first started as a vintage blogger I felt a lot of pressure to look like I came out of a 1940's movie. I tried all the decades and eventually found that I feel most comfortable wearing 1950's and 1960's pieces (although my heart will always be with the 1940's and 1970's for nostalgic reasons). 

The gist of this post is where what makes you feel good and happy. At the end of the days it's just clothes and it should serve its purpose which is to decorate your body and make you feel good.

Here are some posts that may inspire you to reach your personal style goals:
