The Courtaulds at Eltham Palace

The Courtaulds at Eltham Palace

Textiles heir Stephen Courtauld and his wife Virginia bought Eltham palace, in the south east of London, as their main residence in 1936. The Courtaulds lived there from 1936 until 1944. Before the couple moved into the palace it was transformed (and revamped) into a 1930s design dream in combination with the remains of a royal, medieval palace. The Courtalds hired the architects Seely and Paget for this job. We guess you have to see it in real life to appreciate this palace….Anyways it’s decadence galore!

Royce Reed and Marilyn Hoggatt

Royce Reed and Marilyn Hoggatt

A couple of years ago we found clips of Royce on You Tube. We, at Mimi Berlin, posted a few and here is one more: Quando, Quando, also featuring Marilyn.

Royce Reed and Marilyn Hoggatt; “two of the most unusual ladies ever to grace downtown L.A.”

The makers of these clips are Bill Geerhart and Andrew D’Ambrosio. They filmed the ladies from the 1990s until 2010 at the Hotel Stillwell in downtown Los Angeles and later residences. They planned to make a documentary from this material. Bill Geerhart and Andrew D’Ambrosio’s campagin on indiegogo is closed. But the full-lnght documentary is nowhere to be found…. Maybe you know if they ever finished it or otherwise where to find it? If you do know more please let us know!
Thanks! xoxo Mimi

Mina and T. Thielemans Live

Toots Thielemans (29 April 1922 – 22 August 2016) has passed away. So let’s remember him today. Altough our alltime favorite tune with Mr Thielemans on harmonica is the theme from Midnight Cowboy, the performance below isn’t bad either, au contraire!
