Mary Worth 1739

Hey, funny background man, they filmed Rocky in Philadelphia, not New York City. You raise your hands on the steps of the Philly Museum of Art, not the New York Public Library.

K squared must be looking forward to seeing all the pictures of the middle aged Mary in the 1950's! Mary, however, looks to have some trepidation at the idea...or maybe DOSC's oatmeal has given her the trots!

Mary is remembering a fantasy New York, built out of old movies, Eloise at the Plaza, TV and 50's magazines. Maybe she never really lived there at all?

Mary needs to tell Ken about "Simply Silver." It would clear the yellow right up in his hair. Maybe that could be the next product placement.

I think I've spotted Mary at least three times in this collection.

She's taking tickets in a theater, ice skating in an open air rink, and there she is relaxing on the steps of the New York Public Libary!

Nance said...

This panel would fit right into said collection.

KitKat said...

In the second panel, is Ken taking Mary's arm, or is he reaching back to give her a pat on the tuchas?

Please---PLEASE---keep the trenchcoat buttoned.

It's possible Ken will notice a picture of Mary in the exhibit. She will look the same as she does now (possibly even older) because, as we all know, Mary doesn't age.

Love fauxprof's reference to Eloise at the Plaza, one of my favorite (series of) books. Since Giella has been doing such a stellar job of reproducing iconic New York objects--like those lions on the steps of the NY Public Library--I'm looking forward to Ken and Mary's meeting Eloise and her nanny. . .I can just see Giella's depiction of Eloise's dog, Weenie, as it disdainfully sniffs Ken and Mary. . .

Why is that man trying to clean the windows without any cleaning products?

1850's maybe ?

The man on the steps is a confused midwesterner who thinks he's hailing a taxi.

Let's start a pool: pick the date when the pinstripes will reappear on the coat, or when the hair will again be all gray, or both! Such suspense!

Mary has that brown purse that she gave to DOSC again. Is she asking for trouble?

Ummmmm... Ken must be color-blind because there is blue in those 'black and white' photographs!

Why is there no "navy blue" in Mary Worth? Again, today, we have a guy in the background wearing a turquoise suit. Cops wear turquoise uniforms; muggers wear turquoise jeans..... Can somebody tell me why the colorist only gets the 8-color Crayola box?
