Friday Catblogging: Introducing Claire Trevor

We have a new kitty. She’s a two-year-old Calico whose previous person died. His family wouldn’t take her but we did.

She was rescued by the same person who gave us Paul Drake. The omens are good. In fact, if PD were still with us, she’d be his pesky kid sister. She was destined to join our family.

We named her after Claire Trevor one of my favorite actresses of the 1930’s and ’40s. She specialized in playing tough broads and femme fatales. Her namesake is on the shy side right now but she’s going to be something.

Here’s the Claire Trevor movie list I came up with for Saturday Odds & Sods last month:

My Top Ten Favorite Claire Trevor Movies:

  1. Stagecoach
  2. Key Largo
  3. Born To Kill
  4. Murder My Sweet
  5. Raw Deal
  6. Two Weeks In Another Town
  7. Crack Up
  8. Dead End
  9. Johnny Angel
  10. The High and the Mighty

Without further ado, here are some pictures of the wee lassie’s floor show. First, on PD’s favorite rug:

Here’s CT giving a dirty look worthy of the late great Della Street:

  1. Fine lookin’ kitteh. I don’t remember the circumstances, but I had a day off and my wife was working, so I had the day at home to myself. I’d read a book about John Ford, and bought the DVD for Stagecoach, and that was the day to watch it. I enjoyed the movie, spotting the little grace notes the book had detailed. I figured I’d follow it up with Key Largo, and was mildly startled to see Claire Trevor there, too.

    She played two very different women in those movies, and while I like to focus on Bogie and Bacall in Key Largo, I found myself really concentrating on Trevor. She was really good.
