A trip to Neverland

There is something about Disney movies. You love the movies as a kid and they have a special place in your nostalgic heart when you’re all grown up. Remember when Mufasa died (Lion King)? Or when Dombo was being teased with his big ears? Then all of the sudden he had super powers and he could fly. Instant karma. You probably also remember Peter Pan and his Neverland. The (Disney) film version of this story was first published in 1923 and became a huge success. The rest is history. Until this day, Peter Pan is used as a name for a person who (always) has a youthful appearance. The term Neverland is used to refer to a fantasy land. A nice, fun place to forget about your worries. Another world. The one thing that can spoil your relaxed state of mind is Captain Hook. But he never wins, Peter Pan conquers every time.

We’re following a young, independent (aspired) journalist who is ahead of her time. She decides to write a book with the stories of black maids, that expose the racism they face in everyday …

Another not so typical retro-meets-present day. Today we will start with a little test. Imagine the Golden Hollywood era. Ready for the questions? Here they come:
1. Name the “Peek-a-boo” blonde of the 1940s?
2. When I say blonde bombshell of the 1950s, who do you think of? If you’re familiair with the Old Hollywood world, you may think of a few. But there is just one person who pops up into everyone’s mind without having the google her name…
3. You think you can dance, but he danced Classic Hollywood nights and Broadway Ballrooms away and still is an inspiration for nowadays dancers. He is usually mentioned in one sentence with Ginger Rogers. Guess who?
4. Now let’s go to the 70s. Sideburns and white shimmering jumpsuit?
5. Ok, last one. When I say moonwalk, who comes into your mind?
Answers can be found at the bottom of this post.
Congratulations if you got all the answers right. You …
