Lana Del Rey has dropped her new music video and it is an ode to the ‘man-child’! Norman F***** Rockwell! (abbreviated to NFR!) is Lana at her deep, matured and responsible best.
From unmoustachioed Charlie Chaplin to a moustachioed Shammi Kapoor and a young Prithviraj Kapoor staring from a 1932 movie poster, Wildcat of Bombay is a treasure trove for lovers of early Indian cinema.

To bring you joy at the start of the week, here are the nasheeli (intoxicating) eyes of a young Shammi Kapoor. This gorgeous studio portrait dates back to the 1950s when Shammi still sported a moustache. Could the exact year be 1955? The year when a moustachioed Shammi starred opposite Geeta Bali in films like Miss Coca Cola (!) and the year the two got married? In any case, Miss Coca Cola (image 2) features two songs based on the power of the lover's gaze: Jhuka jhuka ke nigaahein milaaye jaatey hain; and Teri kaafir nigaah. Has anyone seen this film? #shammikapoor #nigaahein #nasheelieyes #hindisongs #cocacola #geetabali #moustache #studiophotography #photostudio #vintagebollywood
