Friday's This & That

It's Friday!  Now let's see what's floating around the interwebs?

Well, it looks like another of Steve McQueen's cars is up for auction.  They speculate 1967 Ferrari could go for anywhere between $8 and $12 million when it goes to auction later this month at the RM Auctions annual Monterrey sale in California.  "Chianti-colored" (that's dark red for you non-wine drinkers), it was a gift given to him when he was filming Bullitt.

Emma Ferrer, granddaughter of Audrey Hepburn and Mel Ferrer, is going to appear on the September cover of Harper's Bazaar.  Check out the multiple news links to verify, but it definitely looks just like her grandma. The 20-year-old art student doesn't seem to be making modeling a full-time career -- as this is her first photo shoot of its kind -- and with those genes, she definitely should consider making it a full-time thing.

Always looking for great books to bring me back to the Golden Age, I found this great list at Huff Post Books of 8 Books That Will Transport You to Old Hollywood.  I've already read Errol Flynn's My Wicked Wicked Ways, and it was pretty good.  I hope I can get to the others.

Happy Friday, and have a great weekend!
