The Great Dictator Speech set to ‘Time’ from the Inception soundtrack.


Captain America was so unrealistic. You honestly expect me to believe they put the flash drive in the right direction on the first try every time.

See the halibuts and the sturgeons
Being wiped out by detergents.
Fish gotta swim and birds gotta fly,
But they don’t last long if they try.

How great is Edith Head? She was nominated for 35 academy awards and won eight of them — more wins than any other costume designer. That’s also the most academy awards won by a woman, in any category.

"While other designers were busy starring their clothes in a film, Edith was making clothes to suit a character; for her, the character always came first," Bette Davis wrote. During her career, she designed for some of the biggest stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age –– Elizabeth Taylor, Natalie Wood, Bette Davis, Lucille Ball and Audrey Hepburn.

Edith was a UC Berkeley alum who studied French and began her career working as a language teacher. She began taking drawing classes at night and in 1924, she was hired by Paramount as a costume sketch artist ––despite lacking experience in design–– and worked her way up.
