My current vintage obsession: Helen
|Helen in Caravan (1971)|
So I watched my first few YouTube clips of Helen to see what all the fuss was about. And ay caramba, her routines are hot sauce – I can imagine a Eurasian burlesque artiste could do worse than make up a routine in homage to her. Fan magazines dubbed her 'The H-Bomb'. Also, she is giving me major makeup goals. And jewellery goals. But not clothes goals. I wouldn't do that to you.

So now I need to see if we have any old Hindi films on cable – there could be all sorts of channels I've never explored, and there might be some movies in the 'On demand' option. I don’t know if Mr Robot would be prepared to watch a whole movie with me, mind. He doesn't like musicals in English. Though musicals in English don't usually have a Helen.
