The Tender Hook
I remember doing a couple of days as a costume assistant, on set for the boxing ring scenes for this film. I was quite disturbed by all the testosterone flying around. I guess it was like being at a real life boxing match.
Cappi Ireland designed the costumes. I used to work with her when I got my first job, the older girls taught me what was the best matt red lipstick to buy (Poppi) and which cigarrettes to smoke (Peter Styvessant soft pack). I'd still take any advice Cappi cared to impart.
Rose Byrne plays the leading actress and she is dressed divinely, such a pleasure to watch. Gorgeous and a sort of sparkling way.
