It's Too Darn Hot

Architectural Antiques & Design, Charleston, S.C.

Can I put this on my door tomorrow and close up shop? I spotted this sign on the door of  Architectural Antiques & Design on St. Andrews Blvd.when I stopped by Hokus Pokus looking for Super Hero accessories.

I admit, I had no idea who Ann Miller was or what the quote related to but google solved that:

  1. I recall seeing Ann Miller in movies and was transfixed...a leggy beautiful brunette who danced like a dream!

  3. Wow! You didn't grow up with TV so it isn't surprising you missed her. The movies of that period were a staple of TV until the networks took over with their programming. She was a heck of a hoofer. That's hoofer not hooker as my keyboard initially typed in.

  5. I posted a video of this song awhile back but I missed this one. Ann Miller was known for her legs. I think you can see why in this video. Thanks!

    1. It's funny that the person putting the sign on the door assumed everyone would know who she was. Of course they were selling antiques.

  7. You haven't lived until you have seen Ann Miller's 1970 Great American Soup commercial. Here's a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jU2pl7bqKg

  8. I will check it out. My 10 year stint without tv in India left some gaps in my general knowledge.
