Pagan Sphinx Entertainment Highlight and Music for Sunday

From one of our favorite films Black Orpheus 
Marcel Camus directed nearly a dozen films, including Orfeu Negro (Black Orpheus), which won the Golden Palm at the 1959 Cannes Film Festival.

This one goes out to the one I love.


  1. well, you know my small issue with bandwidth,satellites and videos...I am always missing out of the most wonderful things! ah well, happy sunday to you...

    and while I am here, your nudes are wonderful this time around:) what a wide arc of art to enjoy given everyone's suggestions and fun to read as well!

    well, to be honest, except the tennis girl, because I tend to be sensitive as my daughter is overweight and so I am overly reactive to finding humor in comparisons-- although I realize it's there...and she[the large one] is willing to put her butt out there, right? what really "cracked" me up was the "click for LARGER viewing"..for some odd reason, I was laughing hysterically over that, probably because I am just sick! bad!

    have a good week if I don't see you♥

  2. Bobbie: Black Orpheus is a gem. Though it does turn out to be a story on the par of a Greek tragedy.

    Linda: Ha! Well, you got the joke if you laughed at "click to enlarge image"! It's subtle, so I'm glad you caught it. As far as the bigger tennis girl - she does put herself out there and she should, as she is is quite well-proportioned - like a Botero with a modern twist!

    Sorry you can't view the video but if you have netflix, put it on your queue - I think you will love it.

    You have a good week too. I hope the website construction is going well. Keep us posted.

  3. That should be Marcel Camus - not to be confused with Albert Camus, the existentialist.

  4. Jeff: I knew that and yet I automatically typed "Albert" instead of Marcel. The existentialist's name taps off the fingers so easily. Thanks for the correction. I will change it on the post.

  5. That clip is precious, and makes me wish I had a machine to play it on, though I gave that up for the consolidation which never quite happened.

    Thanks for posting it, I watched it three times and smiled all the while.


  6. CR: "precious" is a perfect word for it. Though the film does intensify as it moves along. This clip is from the beginning of the film. I really wish you could see it in its entirety.

  7. You have an amazing blog of ART!!

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
