Oh ... Rosalinda!!

Continuing on, note from my earlier post todayHowdy Whitehoushe, Wan Shum Sheven Up: :
Oh... Rosalinda!! (1955) as Capt. Alfred  
Another addition to the “Rose/Colour Theme” pattern-cluster.  Of the cast, three stand out:
  • Christopher George Joseph Challis  (18 March 1919 – 31 May 2012
  • Ludmilla Tchérina  (10 October 1924 – 21 March 2004) as Rosalinda
  • Michael Redgrave  (20 March 1908 – 21 March 1985) as Col. Eisenstein
Note the “March 18, __, 20, 21(x2)” pattern-cluster.  And now I know just exactly where this is going, I know who belongs in the gap:
Harvey Weinstein (born March 19, 1952) American film producer.
Many people today know exactly who he is, and not because of his films, note from my recent post, Us Tou:
  • This morning I checked my facebook timeline and saw that a friend had put up a This Hour Has 22 Minutes video: “Us Too”, with Susan Kent’s take on Harvey Weinstein who’s been in the news over the last few weeks, over countless women who’ve come forward claiming sexual harassment and even rape.  
Now there’s a reason why the inner twin world has brought us back full circle to Weinstein, butt I’ll save that for my next post.  And by the way, you know that recent “Beard Theme” pattern-cluster, well Weinstein has a “stubble” beard just like Rob MacGregor’s.  The inner twin world just letting us know that we’re on the “wright” track!!
