You'll cringe. You'll love it.





(Be sure to watch at least around 3'48" in the second clip....)

So much to love about the Eameses. Though you'll cringe every time the interviewer emphasizes Charles and puts Ray in the position of being the "woman standing behind the man", you have to love that wonderful 1950's formal diction and elocution. I would love to learn to speak that way, if only to deploy it for the course of an evening....

(I know I got this clip from some blog I read regularly, but can't remember which. If it's you, or if you know, please remind me so I can appropriately credit the source...)

Yes, Gore Vidal is brilliant. Diabolical, but brilliant...
