I'm totally in love with these adorable 60's dresses I found last week! The blue one was made by Malcolm Starr who designed some especially groovy clothes. They're all in the shop now, ready to brighten up someone's closet.
Luck, be a lady tonight ........one of our more interesting finds. A genuine late 1950's-early 1960's, double painted 3D slot or poker machine glass. "El Dorado", depicting the strip at Las Vegas, with iconic casino names like The Sands, the Mint, the Silver Dollar, the Golden Nugget and the iconic waving cowboy sign from the Pioneer Club. Some of these joints are still around, other have closed but are not forgotten and live on in popular culture. That is also how I can date this by the casinos shown.These glasses which were ingeniously painted back and front to produce a 3D effect were mounted in the front of a slot machine and were backlite and displayed the payouts. The glass measures 355 mm wide x 200 mm tall x 10 mm thick. It is in superb condition with minimal paint missing . A great "mantique", could be mounted on a wall as is or framed. Very cool piece of retro and social history. Remember what Elvis said, "Viva Las Vegas" Thank you very much. $95.
The Sender (1982) - directed by Roger Christian and starring Kathryn Harrold, Zeljko Ivanek, and Shirley Knight…
A disturbed telepathic man is unable to fully control his ability to transmit his dreams and visions into the minds of the people around him, or even influence reality. A female therapist tries to help him, but his mother gets in the way. I haven’t seen this in years, but The Sender is often regarded as a “hidden gem” amongst horror enthusiasts - it came out in a very very limited release in 1982, and managed to double its budget in box office receipts. Roger Christian worked on both Star Wars and Alien as an Art Director, and this film was his big screen debut as Director. A solid takeaway is that Quentin Tarantino has gone on record multiple times saying that The Sender was his favorite horror film of 1982. Need to check it out again…and I LOVE the movie poster art!
