Oh, lets face it, doesnt have quite the same ring as Rio, does it? And no, in March, I will be going by train, believe me. Well, given it will involve First Trans Pennine Express, and Northern Rail, maybe I should say, should be going by train, lol?
Yes, off to Blackpool again in March, for the film festival, and this time, with more planning, I’m working on a longer stay. Its handy that its the weekend of my birthday in that sense, as I will be off work anyway.
Seemingly one of the themes for next year is Hollywood glamour, which leads to a distinct possibility that I might yet get to have my ‘Clara Johnson’ chorus line moment, in suitable attire, which should be fun! Seems like the 42nd Street dance team that have been hired for the event might have a couple of extra, slightly less talented dancers on the team, lol!
So yes, if you want to see me make a fool of myself like that (or not), then you might want to arrange to be in Blackpool from 15th – 17th March, 2019, just saying…!
But why I picked this particular title, and this particular musical (no, its not 42nd Street) is because of something I learned about a wonderful friend today. She did what is termed as wing walking a while back, something I offer her my utmost admiration for doing. Of course she was secured, but even so…Oh fine, if someone had offered me the chance, when younger, I might have said yes, but…not sure I would now, other than for huge amounts of sponsorship, lol! 😛
Which brought me back to this. Yes, Clara Johnson is among the girls on the planes, though more a case of looking pretty here, than doing a sensational dance routine. In truth, I suspect she was probably about 30 feet (10 metres?) maximum off the ground, in front of a screen, and behind a fan, but anyway… Lets face it, they’re not going to let a girl actually fall a long way from an actual plane, over the sea, are they? Especially as one was Ginger Rogers…? Yes, just checked, not really in flight!
All the same, it looked amazing, I must say. As for Angie, and doing it for real, so uch admiration!
Right, video time. Yes, its that movie, and yes, its that shoot. No, thats one thing Clara ‘did’ that is going to take a lot of money for a good cause to get me to do, lol!
