You have to be pretty old, or a viewer of TCM to know this reference. When I saw this as a Kid, I was much like the character played by Dana Andrews when he saw the portrait of Laura. Smitten with Gene Tierney. There is a video to go with this on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zdg99GH4kl8

L Skylar Brown,
I am a TCM late night viewer and am familiar with the movie but
oh my goodness ... your artistry and youtube submission has
unraveled me to the point of bringing tears to my eyes. The
movie star, who she was is secondary ... it is the intensity of
the emotion, the drama that you have infused into your artistic
presentation, interpretation and expression around that evolving
work of art and most beautiful song that made my heart skip a
beat or two ... or more. Oh wow ... gee whiz and ... pardon as
I catch my breath ... how touching, how romantic, how very
wonderful! :)

Amanda - Thank you so much. She was one of my boy-hood crushes.

Coops - Thank you. I am really enjoying this series. More to come.

BB, Jean, Caesar - Thank you all so much.

Mairz - Well, my Dear, I am flummexed and flabbergasted at your response! This was an emotional experience for me to do, even with stopping to take snaps. I carried such a crush for "Laura" for a long time. The music just unglues me to this day.
