This Holiday Weekend


Meet Me in St. Louis
Saturday, November 24, 2:00 p.m.
1944, 113 mins., MGM. Restored 35mm print. Directed by Vincente Minnelli. With Judy Garland, Margaret O’Brien. In this bittersweet turn-of-the-century musical, a family contends with life, love, and an impending move from St. Louis to New York City. In his first color film, Vincente Minnelli deftly organizes color around Judy Garland, moving seamlessly between song and story.

The Wizard of Oz
Saturday, November 24, 4:30 p.m. 1939, 101 mins., MGM. 35mm IB Tech print. Directed by Victor Fleming. With Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr, Jack Haley. MGM’s answer to Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (1937) builds a fantasy on the foundation of color. From the Emerald City to the Yellow Brick Road, Technicolor has seldom been more fundamental to a cinematic world, or more ornate.
Judy Garland (holding Toto, as Dorothy Gale) and Billie Burke (as Glinda, the Good Witch of the North) in Victor Fleming's THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939), screening at the Museum of the Moving Image on November 24, 2007 as part of the Museum's "Glorious Technicolor!" film series, November 17-December 2. The series celebrates the installation of an extremely rare three-strip Technicolor camera in the Museum's core exhibition. Photo: Photofest/courtesy of Museum of the Moving Image.

Singin’ in the Rain
Saturday, November 24, 7:00 p.m. 1952, 102 mins., MGM. 35mm. Directed by Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly. With Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds, Donald O’Connor, Jean Hagen. Donen’s film about the advent of the talkies is also an homage to Technicolor style and legacy, from the twocolor musicals of the late 1920s to the rapturous three-color spectaculars of the 1940s.

Lisa's note: The High School of Art & Design strikes again with Evan Laurence another long time friend acting his way to the top. Evan was recently featured on urbanseashell—a collection when his artwork was on exhibition last month (posting 10.22). He tells me he has "been recently drawing like a madman". We will patiently wait for the next show Evan. In the meantime he is advertising Sexahol at The Parkside Lounge in Manhattan the day after Thanksgiving.
Enjoy your holiday everyone!

As Thanksgiving approaches, some of you are dreading that long,

dragged out flight to the midwest or red states to commiserate with
your Norman Rockwell-like family. For some, this holiday is a test of
endurance, requiring many glasses of liquor to block out the burning
sun of family.

Well, have no fear!

Sexahol is back the day after Turkey Day and there is plenty of liquor
to be had! This month we bring you the sublime Joan Crowe, major star
of cabaret! If that's not enough the Lady Clover Honey will titilate
you with her jokes and snaps and perhaps sing a sultry standard or
two. David F. Slone will also rock the house with a number or two and
I can promise a computer crafted ditty of my own. But, wait! Mr. Slone
and I will be performing oodles of improv to dazzle and tease your
respective funny bones....and we may have a surprise guest (or two).

So toss back the turkey till you're stuffed to the gills
(invertebrates, this means you!) and come join the happy Sexahol
family for a night of frivolous jollies!

See you there,
