Dial H for Heroine 46
I remember loving The Rocketeer, the movie, when I was a kid. Apparently it's a pretty mediocre movie, but... you know, I was a kid.
I really like a lot of the aesthetics of the 1930s/1940s. I like art deco, I like the fashion, I like the music, I like the comic books, I like the cartoons, I like the Universal monster movies from that era, I like at least the idea of the old film and radio serials. I wonder if it was partly The Rocketeer that introduced me to that aesthetic.
Maybe I should watch it again sometime. Or, you know, maybe I shouldn't, so that I'm not disappointed...
