Though I can't find the words to express it in turn

[personal profile] skygiants has just finished reading Audrey Erskine Lindop's The Singer Not the Song (1953) and I recommend everyone read her review.

I had mostly heard of the book as the source material for the 1961 film, which I have not seen. It co-stars John Mills, but I've mostly heard about it in context of Dirk Bogarde, specifically in black leather pants. I went looking for photographic evidence.

Nothing I have ever read suggests the film is any good, but I see why people don't care.
