Hi dear followers! Summer is here and that means no university, nice weather (hopefully) and vacation! Now I finally have time to watch old black and white movies again. I absolutely love the Hitchcock movies and other old mystery movies. The only problem is that I’ve seen all the well known ones already. Does anyone know some nice black and white mystery movies who are less known (maybe even obscure), but certainly worth a watch? Thank you so much!

" Okay, whenever I hear or read that I’m beautiful, I simply don’t understand it… I’m certainly not beautiful in any conventional way. I didn’t make my career on beauty. "
When was the last time one woman so affected the world? In the tiny French town of Pont-Saint-Esprit, where a century ago her great-great-grandfather earned his keep as a cabinetmaker, the flags at City Hall flew at half-staff. On the front steps of the Kennedy family estate in Palm Beach, a single red hibiscus left by a stranger fluttered in the warm breeze. And in New York City, a woman on a mountain bike rode up to the elegant entrance of 1040 Fifth Avenue and placed a bouquet of red roses on the ground. “She was part of the landscape,” said Eileen Stukane before pedaling away. “I will miss her.” ~People Magazine, 1994.

Jackie, 21 years old in this picture, and the Irish priest Joseph Leonard, 1951.
It was a very pleasant surprise to see Jackie in the dutch newspaper today! In this picture she is standing next to the Irish priest Joseph Leonard. Jackie met him during a visit to Ireland in 1951. After that meeting they kept in touch. Jackie wrote about 30 letters to the priest. In 1963, the year that John F. Kennedy was murdered, she wrote to him: ”I am so bitter against god”. The letters will be auctioned at the 10th of June together with a christmas card singed by Jackie and John.
