Thoroughly modern...? Maybe not.

I got the movie Thoroughly Modern Millie from Netflix in the mail yesterday. I got watching it (fantastic...come on, Julie Andrews really can't go wrong in a musical!), and got to the only part I've ever really seen before in this movie: the beads part.

Yes, Millie is trying to "modernify" herself and gets a long string of beads because it's en vogue. She looks down at the necklace, and it's skeewompus (sp?). She looks down several times, and much to her chagrin the beads lay horribly each time.

Then comes the text screen--

"Gee, I wish my fronts weren't so full...they sure ruin the line of your beads."

I looked down at my own long necklace...yep, skeewompus. I guess I need lessons in modern!

You'll have to hit the fronts shop.

I almost don't want to admit it but I've never seen Millie. Yep, it's true. Some things I noticed:
-Was this movie made in the 60's?
-Juliet Stevenson looks a bit like Julie Andrews. I think it's just the faces she was making in her awful wig but there was a teeny resemblance.
-Fronts? That's hilarious. It makes me want to call bottom shape wear "backs."
