Enduring images of beauty – or, Thoughts after viewing the 2020 film version of Rebecca

There is always the willowy doe-eyed one

Always the pig-faced blonde

Always the short, sassy brunette

The one with eyes

Gemstone green

Or violet

Lily James is the new Keira Knightley

Deborah Raffin was the new Grace Kelly

Deborah who?

Not the gamine

Australian-born, with English mother, has lived in several Australian cities and in London. Travelled widely. Way way back when, published widely as a poet and short story writer. For the first 20 years of my working life I worked as an entertainment journalist, publicist, PR consultant and in advertising and media agencies. In the second 20 years, I worked in marketing roles at non-profit organisations then retrained as a teacher, primarily teaching English to non-English speaking, newly-arrived refugees. Also did miserable McJobs, and a long, happy stint at an art gallery.
