She Gave Him Class. She Gave Him Sex.

Wait, isn't he supposed to give her something? In fairness, he did. I'd call it venerability. To say nothing of companionship. Such as it was, though. Got all her best years, the old drunk. But then, she seemed to like it that way. Whatever. None of my biz.

All I'm saying is, I love Adam's Rib, and I hope you do, too. And I hope you love this picture. Love the black & white. Soak it up. Because I'm afraid you won't be seeing much more of it as the countdown continues...

Woohoo, I'm a big fan of this particular gem.

It seems like every time I click over here you've a new one written. It's great!

Aww I really like Adam's Rib. One of their best together chemistry-wise. Although I don't think it's aged very well and it does seem to go roundabout in itself a lot, but good fun, and I really believed in the passion of them both.

I just want to say that I genuinely appreciate the way you write about film. There's a deeper, more intellectual thought that goes into your approach to these artworks that I don't see in a lot of (or most of) modern film criticism. You're like a more expansive Pauline Kael. I wish you wrote for the New Yorker.

Just thought I'd drop a line and let you know that your work is the tops. Keep up the good work, Nick!

Yay for Adam's Rib fans!

@David: First of all, it's completely lovely to see you here again after so long; I hope everything is wonderful for you these days. And thanks for such a truly generous compliment. I hope it won't make it sound like I'm actively fishing for them when I say how much it means to me to hear them. Thank you so much!
