Camille, the 1936 American movie version of the Dumas novel with Greta Garbo and Robert Taylor is one of my favorite movies. Garbo is so fragile and mysterious and alone as Marguerite Gauthier. She doesn't "milk" the dying scene. From that Dumas novel came many movies, versions for the theatre and ballet and opera adaptations.
I loved her apartment and her beautiful dresses. I love that it is in black and white somehow that seems fitting for the woman in white.
Here are a few of my own camellias that are blooming right now. I love the soft pinks and I also have a pink and white striped one.
When I saw Moulin Rouge with Nicole Kidman it was basically the same story with the same ending but with a lot more music and drama. I loved it!
Camellias hold a special place in Southern gardens and when they start to bloom I know the other flowers of spring are soon to follow.
Have a PINK day!
