Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/30/19

Most women set out to try to change a man, and when they have changed him they do not like them.”   —   Marlene Dietrich

(I don’t know about “most women” trying to change their men, but I do know that the ones who do try to “change” them usually end up failing.  And, it’s kind of foolish anyway to try.  You have to accept people for who they are.  If you don’t see enough pluses, just move the heck on.  I think Marlene may have been the originator of RBFResting Bitch Face!  Of course, my daughter taught me that expression!  It’s so hard finding a photo of Ms. Dietrich smiling.  It’s always sultry, or sullen.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Unc, you’re going to have to explain your “RBF” reference. The words alone aren’t descriptive enough to make sense. I think if you explain it, maybe I’ll get it.

    I’ll never need Marlene Dietrich to smile. Every picture I’ve seen of her is “smokingly hot” ! If she were still with us, she could abuse me anytime she felt like it. Likewise for Sophia Loren.

    Trying to change a man is the worst mistake some women make. They liked the guy when they first met him, then right away they want to change him into something he wasn’t when they met. It makes no sense.

    I never know when you’re yanking my chain, lwc. In many of her photos she IS sultry, but in just as many she is sullen. Maybe you find the sullen ones just as “hot”, but to guys like me they just make her look pissed off, aka: bitchy. Hers might be by design, but for some women their non-smiling face always comes across as pissed off. Today’s young’uns call it RBF. Oh, yeah. Sophia Loren does NOT suffer from RBF!

    Just so you know, sometimes I’m serious, and sometimes I’m kidding, but your posts are usually interesting enough that I’ll occassionally feel like tossing in my own nickel’s worth.

    I always felt that Marlene was a marvelous actress and much better than she was given credit. I think she knew the image she wanted her photos to project, like in her famous work, “The Blue Angel”. I would probably be intimidated to meet a woman like that in person, but from the safe distance of the big screen, she would have my total attention.

    Well, I’m glad that – on occasion – my posts are “interesting enough” for you to grace us with your insights, lwc. I think that Marlene was definitely given her fair share of credit, as she was one of THE biggest stars of her age. If you do a Google Image search of her you will find there are a few shots of her with a very subtle, wry smile, AND one where she’s in uniform showing a surprisingly toothy smile. It’s NOT a great look. So, I’m sure she knew her limitations, when it came to posing for the camera, and purposely cultivated the more sultry and sullen look, over the typical “Smile for the camera” style that most movie stars went/go for.
