Barbara Bel Geddes, RIP

Film, Stage Star Barbara Bel Geddes Dies by Bob Thomas.

I'm sure much will be rightly said about her long and accomplished career. But, for me, it all comes down to Vertigo. Bel Geddes's Midge is absolutely charming and adorable. Kim Novak is a big ol' boring block of wood and yet somehow she's the object of lust, not only for Jimmy Stewart but for millions of movie-goers around the world.

People are stupid.

Incredibly stupid.

Anyway, this is the reason why I think Vertigo is one of Hitch's weaker entries, most people are lame and why it means something to me the Barbara Bel Geddes has passed.
