Happy Labor Day!

Labor Day, sadly, signals the official end of summer in the US.  Wherever you are, we hope you can get outside and enjoy the great outdoors.  

Around Bon Bon Pond, we always make time to celebrate this holiday with a very special movie.  Released in 1955, Picnic is a tale that transpires on Labor Day. Originally written as a play by William Inge, it enjoyed great success on Broadway before it was made into a terrific motion picture starring the incredibly handsome William Holden and the sultry Kim Novak. 

The dance sequence, set to the gorgeous Moonglow remains one of Hollywood’s sexiest scenes ever and stands as a testament to the concept that romance on film does not require nudity or vulgarity.  Skilled actors, like Holden and Novak, can create sensuality and steam up the silver screen with just a glance and a touch.  Here’s a taste . . .
