Mogambo and Leopard

Mogambo (1953)was on the other day and I had forgotten just how much I enjoy this film.  Clark Gable is at his chauvinistic best, Ava Gardener sings a smashing chorus of "Comin' Thru the Rye," and Grace Kelly is prim but convincing (Mogambo was one of her first big movie roles).  If you haven't seen it, you really should.  
One thing I especially like about the movie is the safari style:

The safari influence of Mogambo, combined with the post I did the other day on Stephen Shubel (and Suzanne Kessler before that), have totally inspired me to take a little closer look at leopard  prints successfully used in interiors.  When done properly, leopard is a beautiful neutral accent or foundation for a room.  See what you think.

Great.  Just great.  Now I need a leopard rug.  I'll add it to the list...  Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!  And do watch Mogambo when you get the chance.
