After the party. [Apollonia Saintclair]
Jacqueline Bisset in Casino Royale, 1967.
Your drink Sir?
Lusty Au Pair with Anne Magle
I’m going to try this.
Kinda crude, kinda stupid, I know.
But, still, kinda lovely, too.
Exquisite textures. I can see how that story about the champagne glass having been inspired by the shape of Marie Antoinette’s breasts could be entirely plausible.
"Would you like a glass of champagne?" she asked.
"Please," he replied. She smiled and disappeared into the crowd. She seemed to be gone longer than necessary but finally she returned carrying two champagne flutes. He thought it odd that she held them up to the light as if comparing them. Smiling, she handed him the one in her right hand and, standing on her tiptoes, whispered something to him over the noise in the room.
"Really?" he said, as if in disbelief. He then held the flute up to the light and then, slowly, began to smile. No one noticed his knowing glance.
Nor did they notice that he held the flute carefully near the rim or that he periodically held it up to the light or that he politely insisted on keeping the same one the entire evening.
Or, after the party was over, that they held hands and giggled like kids on the way to their car.
Just a thought in keeping with the occasion…
