Pettis a'flyn'!


This, sent by Anymouse, purports to be Debbie Reynolds in Two Week With Love (1950)  But we
really think the clothing is inappropriate for the time period  However,
IMDB seems to back it up.

From Anymouse,
a stillclip from the 1953 film Give A Girl a Break, with Debbie Reynolds      
Marge Champion appears in several wonderful full dresses! Too many to itemize. Trust us, this is GREAT!  Also, Miss Reynolds
wears a remarkably beautiful, yellow dress and white petticoat in an enthusiastic dance number down a flight of
stairs with her dance partner. We see a lot of beautiful "skirt work." There are several nice scenes in this film.       Video

"How many clouds of scented lace kiss each other under your skirt?"  
                                                                             
C. Govoni (1884-1965)

 
WHEN I SEE...
A fetching lass, enveloped in tulle,
declaring, defining the beauty of Man(kind)
Slim of waist, contours of mystery.
Dark tresses which defy description,
a mantel of the soul.
She leads on, unaware of her uniqueness--
Classic, haunting,
Deep auras of eyes
Deep vibrations from the heart
Deep color of the gentleness of her inner self.
I see jealousy
I see my yearning to take her place
I see, also, my utter, deadening, sadness.
Tes Staylace -- July 12, 1992
Update Page Policies
Generally, updates are linked to the appropriate area so you do not have to search for it.  We keep updates for as long as six months,
after which we merge the individual entries into the appropriate areas of the site.  Very rarely is anything discarded.
Pettipond  ALWAYS attributes the source of pictures when possible.  Image contributions should include the source, when possible, so at least the site from which it is taken can posted with it. It makes no sense, and is unfair, to have the same image on the Internet more than once, especially if the site originally posting it doe not at least get the benefit of a link. If an image is not attributed, and later is found to be in violation of copyright laws, it will be removed.
The Pond is FIRSTLY a petticoat/bouffant/crinoline site, and SECONDLY a TG site.  Image contributions are always welcome and appreciated, but our policy is to not post TG images (with the exception of Poufbunny Parlor Pinups and the occasional VERY passable CDer (in our Flash Pinup section).  Please do not be offended - there are many TG sites on the Internet, but only ONE Pond, and we want also to be inviting to GGs and non-TG males who merely appreciate females in petticoats!
Pettipond Reflections response additions will NOT be listed in this area.


Think of our brave troops, wherever they are!

Support Israel's fight for survival!
It needs our help, now more than ever,
