…that no matter
like a black hole
it reflects no light
That’s because the pupil is literally a hole in the iris that lets light enter the retina. No light is reflected by the pupil because it is either absorbed directly into the tissues of the eye, or it is absorbed after it is refracted around the inside of the eye.
Then black holes are merely the eyes of the universe
Ginger Rogers as Sherry Martin in Follow the Fleet (1936).
This is a gorgeous sexy dress, one that could be worn today (it is!). Most of Ginger’s fancy dress wardrobe consist of dreamy delights that are nearly impossible to wear in real life. But this…it could happen! So much cleavage on the top and wafting fabric at the bottom! Random jewels on the straps and around her midsection (highlighting aforementioned cleavage) - so festive! It is a ROCKING party dress, and perfect for any fancy event that encourages cleavage.
So it delights me to no end that practical Sherry is wearing this dress for the event of REVENGE (to quote: “Bake Baker, I’ll get even with you if its the last thing I do!”).
Yes, fine, she didn’t know Bake put bicarbonate of soda in her drink when she put it on… but come on, this dress is tailor-made for shenanigans. It cannot be a coincidence. This is the ONLY fancy dress Sherry wears in this movie that is not for the express purpose of Putting on a Show. Even as sad Connie and Kitty Collins (LUCYYYYYYYY) wear ornate dresses at the least provocation, our girl Sherry is tripping around in the most sensible of outfits. A girl who lives for sensible pants and suits does not say, “well, I’ve been hiccupping madly all day, guess it’s time to break out the décolletage!”
And, so poor Bake, caught in Sherry’s web of fake tears and boobs and betrayal, doesn’t have a chance. Maybe he didn’t have a chance before, though. The real target of Sherry’s strategic sexiness is, I believe, the commanding officer Sherry dances with. One dance, and he’s all “sure, take my precious officer ring, beautiful unknown stranger! Your excellent dress sense gives me faith in your integrity!” The power of a great outfit – rational people are lulled into complacency through good fashion sense. Sherry made the right choice here, people.
