red rum

so the shining was on the other night?
and obvs i had to watch because
1. the only horror movies i can watch are OLD horror movies.
and
2. jack nicholson is sorta hot in it

then i realized NUMBER THREE:
SHELLEY DUVALL IS KILLING IT !
pinafores, turtlenecks and clarks. SICK.



then i did an epic image search and blew my own mind:





do you die? BECAUSE I DIE.
please note that the boots do NOT have tongues, like a crazy psychdelic 70s ANN DEMEULEMEESTER STEEZ.

then i saw this still from a movie she did with bud cort (harold!) (which i had seen once before here)



and i fell in love
with nerds all over again.

then i found stills from '3 women' a movie with sissy spacek..whoa





THEN
I FOUND PICTURES OF HER WITH HER MAN
(not sure who this is, it's basically cat stevens- HEY NOW, a girl after MY OWN HEART. not sure if YOU KNOW THIS ALREADY, but that it totally my STYLE.
PS she also dated RINGO STARR..you RULE, lady)

and i LOST IT.

ok...are you ready?

oh


my


GOD

bloggers are loving up on her all over the place.

KATLIN said...

Oh man that movie brings back memories from 6th grade! My after school teacher taught me that phrase and would say it to scare me when I was bad. Haha.

rose said...

check out OLD holly-hobby doll clothes patterns. i'm thinking you might like.
actually they might be a little too "little house on the prairie" though.
but i remember having all the clothes for her and they were amazing. where did all that killer fabric go?

rose said...

oh and is it just me or does her man look like Weird Al in that first pic......
{sorry}

fashion herald said...

shelley duvall is amazing. and i bet she's wearing at least two pairs of lashes in the last pic.

Alicia/InstantVintage said...

These photos are amazing. Oh gawd. I've never seen her look that good (seeing as though I've only seen her in The Shining). LOL.

Leti said...

She is amazing. Don't forget Fairy Tale Theater!

Such a great icon to choose for '09. She sure had fabulous style!! Love how colorful her outfits are.

Nice and Shiny said...

clementine said...

love the film still with bud cort

alissa said...

ok ok so i always loved her and people think im nuts!

Battle said...

Sometimes people tell me I look like her but I completely don't. But I always take it as a compliment although she is a total beanpole. It's reassuring that at least some people appreciate the big eyes/big teeth combo.

Brooke Alexandra said...

^Battle, my boyfriend tells me I look like her too. I wonder why he stays with me!
