Golden Earrings

As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold,
so is a wise reprover upon an obedient ear.”

- Proverbs 25:12

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   This song is the same age as I am. Golden Earrings is one of my all-time favorite films - and why not? It has everything - spies, intrigue, romance, costumes, jewelry, singing, dancing - and gypsies! What's not to love? 

BONUS - - Golden Earrings - Peggy Lee, 1947


Golden Earrings is a 1947 romantic spy film made by Paramount Pictures and starring Ray Milland and Marlene Dietrich. It was directed by Mitchell Leisen and produced by Harry Tugend from a screenplay by Frank Butler, Helen Deutsch and Abraham Polonsky, based on a novel by Jolán Földes. The music score was by Victor Young and the cinematography by Daniel L. Fapp.

The film's haunting song, "Golden Earrings", sung in the movie by Murvyn Vye, was a hit recording in 1947-48 by Peggy Lee.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 09/30/15:

“The best antidote I know for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life is this: He or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she who is served.”

(23 June 1910 - 27 Jan 2008)

Golden Earrings

Music by Victor Young
(08 Aug 1900 – 10 Nov 1956)

Words by Jay Livingston (28 Mar 1915 – 17 Oct 2001)
Ray Evans (04 Feb 1915 – 15 Feb 2007), 1947

There's a story the gypsies know is true
That when your love wears golden earrings,
She (he) belongs to you.
An old love story that's known to very few,
But if you wear those golden earrings,
Love will come to you.
By the burning fire, they will glow with ev'ry coal.
You will hear desire whisper low inside your soul.
So be my gypsy;
Make love your guiding light,
And let that pair of golden earrings
Cast their spell tonight.
