A Real Beauty

Shirley Stoler in Seven Beauties

The mention over on Stirred, Straight Up, With a Twist of The Honeymoon Killers and the marvelous Shirley Stoler reminded me that back in the late 70s when I was managing the West Fourth Street Bookstore, near Washington Square Park, Stoler used to come in, pick out a book, and then stretch out on the floor and read. Definitely one of those “Is this really happening?” moments. Above, a still from Lina Wertmüller’s Seven Beauties, where Stoler played a Nazi prison camp commandant. She also played Mrs. Steve on Peewee’s Playhouse.
