Paris: Moulin Rouge Riddle Solved (Tin Man Brings Home the Gold!)
By Theadora Brack
We came. We saw. We conquered with some smashing teamwork! Yes, with fishnets, ruby slippers, thinking caps, and bubbly, along with Olympic-worthy speed and skill, we solved last week’s Moulin Rouge Riddle!
The cinematic nut was cracked wide open, see. Thanks to Tin Man’s heart, wit, and swift responses, Team Bling brought home the gold. In three minutes flat, our Quiz Master answered two of the three questions correctly. Hip, Hip Hooray. Tin Man, Michael Phelps got nothing on you, sir.
Now, let’s roll out the answers
1. Who was the Assistant Director? Alfred Hitchcock
2. What was the name of the film? “Woman to Woman”
3. And who was the red-haired editor? Alma Reville
Meet the Dream Team (Bravo!)

Stay on your toes
Early next week, we’ll return to the Moulin Rouge for one final spin on the floor boards. I’ll include a few more gossipy tidbits, photographs, and high-kicking dance routines.
In the meantime, here is a classic French cure for tired feet (or “dogs” as my grandmother Helen would say). So let’s chase the rust away with a green clay masque, shall we? Grab the ballpoint! Here’s our shopping list.
Half cup French green clay powder
Half cup water
3 drops olive oil
2 drops lavender oil
La Fée Verte
Next, crank up the ice machine and Erik Satie’s “Gymnopédies.” Trap a book and pour a tall glass of Pastis. Set aside. Proceed with the recipe. Blend ingredients and apply to feet. Cover with a plastic bag and wait 30 minutes. Elevate tootsies. Sip. Inhale. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. Chill thoroughly. Rinse.
Here’s the scoop: French green clay is quarried in the south of France. The color comes from iron oxides and decomposed (fossil) plants, mostly kelp, seaweed and algae, and is considered a mighty powerful external detoxifier. Your friends will be green with envy!
Now, go seize that moment in time and make it shine—clipping from Whitney Houston. Enjoy the games!
