The Best Movie Gloves
I’m old enough to remember the days when girls and ladies considered gloves the finishing touch in dressing for any occasion, from traveling by air(!) to cocktail parties, to a day in the city. In movies gloves, like cigarettes, give rise to a ballet of expressive movements that can be very evocative and even help to tell the story and reveal the character. The movie gloves on my list of favorites are not wool or leather gloves worn for warmth or protection; these are indoor gloves, worn for elegance. Well, except for a couple.
