Dear readers - those who have posted and those who lurk:
I have just read through all the heartfelt tributes to a breathtakingly beautiful (inside and out) actress and woman. One of you who posted mentioned that you started a scrapbook of Deborah Kerr, and it reminded me of some of the things I have done, most markedly during my teenage years, as a result of being under the influence of what I affectionately dubbed "Kerr Kraziness".
Would you all be interested in sharing your manifestations of KK in this thread? I thought it might be an interesting take on the usual adulations. At any rate, here's some of the things I did:
-In algebra class, I used to quiz myself on her movies. My goal was to get all the 45 (or 46?) down (I counted "Contraband" and "Reunion at Fairborough") in correct chronological order. I can still do it! :)
-I put together a folder of all the clippings I could find on DK, with the goal of writing a meatier biography than the Eric Braun book (not accomplished - kind of lost my passion for it, regrettably)
-Lip synched "Shall I Tell You What I Think of You?" in front of my vanity mirror in my bedroom countless times. I was so good at it that by the time I was 16 and understudying Anna in my high school production of "The King and I" (not getting that role outright was a SEARING hurt), the music director said that I knew the number cold. (Well, I should have done - I only practiced it and the rest of the score for four years, you ... grr!)
Okay, enough of reliving THAT. What have you done?
