At the Codfish Ball

Nice title for last night's Mad Men episode, which was filled with brilliant moments, but the shot of Sally, in her grown-up dress, trying her trout at the Cancer Society gala was right up there. A little benign adult moment before she spies her pseudo-French-grandmother and pseudo-date Roger Slattery engaging in some "dirty" behavior.

Anyway, another benefit of the title was that it led me to its source material, and this video of Shirley Temple dancing with Buddy Ebsen. If you haven't seen it, watch it. Shirley Temple was not just a round-faced girl; she had real talent.


  1. That was a scary trout - I'm not sure there was any actual flesh under the skin. Yes, it was my favourite episode of the season so far. I greatly enjoyed the saving of the Heinz account - it's always satisfying when some advertising comes into the show.

  2. I can't believe that that was Julia Ormond.
