I rec'd a notice from She Writes (first in a very long time) that you had posted a new blog and this one suited my needs perfectly.  I recently saw the Woody Allen film and wondered what Renate thought of it.  Hooray!!  You wrote about it AND you have given me the title of another film ... one with a more believable Gertie!  Thank you!
