June 8 - I thought this was Ava Gardner but when I figured out the June 15 clue, I cheated by searching on line. It turns out that the photo on June 8 is Gypsy Rose Lee. I have heard of Gypsy Rose Lee and have even seen a few clips of her doing a fan dance but did not recognize her. In my defense, whenever I see photos or film clips of Lee, my attention is not focused on her face.
June 15 - I did not know who this was. I searched the internet and discovered it was Billy Rose, noted song lyricist, nightclub owner, theatrical producer as well as Fanny Brice's husband. I don't know if I've ever seen a photo of him before.
June 29 - Rose Marie...who I recognized immediately from The Dick Van Dyke Show. Although it has nothing to do with the puzzle, I find Mary Tyler Moore during her time on the show to be incredibly appealing.
Gypsy Rose Lee, Billy Rose & Rose Marie - I assume the puzzle is pointing to the June 4 screening of Rosemary's Baby which I missed. I also know that June's Birth Flower is a rose.
The June 30 screening of Contempt and Mulholland Drive has been rescheduled to July 21. The films were bumped by an event that sounds like something from a film. Kim Kardashian West is appearing at a Commonwealth Club event. Kim Kardashian "in conversation with Judge LaDoris Cordell (ret), Independent Police Auditor, City of San Jose." I wonder how that conversation went at the Commonwealth Club.
"Hey let's get Kim Kardashian to speak at one of our events."
"That's a great idea but who would interview her?"
"Let's get that 60something retired judge who is now the independent police auditor in San Jose!"
The July 1 TBA has been announced. It's a documentary called The Deepest Depths of the Burrow. If you know what or who Nychos is, the film may appeal to you.
