• The Talented Mr. Ripley


    The twisted tale of a Manhattan lavatory attendant begins in a borrowed Princeton blazer. It’s the 1950s. Tom Ripley, a young underachiever, weaves a tangled web of haunted obsession and yearning. In fact, the unabridged title The Mysterious Yearning Secretive Sad Lonely Troubled Confused Loving Musical Gifted Intelligent Beautiful Tender Sensitive Haunted Passionate Talented Mr. Ripley disturbingly sums it up. Although quite unsettling, the film’s portrayal of the endlessly romantic Italian landscape is fodder for the eye. Gary Jones and Ann Roth’s costume design is nothing short of inspiring. It’s an impeccable choice to silently project during your Summer backyard tea/garden party.

    Check out Purple Noon from 1962, the original Talented Mr. Ripley movie. Even better.

    Chens—Yeah, I was just over at Ivy Style today and read that nice piece you posted. I laughed at the coincidence we both pulled from the different iterations of The Talented Mr. Ripley.  I love that quote you pulled.  It bolsters your piece quite effectively.

    We must have the same muse. Just put up my small wardrobe piece with the quote from Ripley, then I see you’ve got a Ripley post today.

    And I was planning a new Kennedy post, but you scooped me there.

    What an amazingly creepy but unbelievably beautiful movie, both in fashion, acting and cinematography!
