Did I ever tell you about that time I did background work for a day on a crime reenactment show? Probably not, because it was for the Investigation Discovery channel and I figured no one would watch it. Well, now that it's on Hulu and you can all enjoy it at your leisure, I'm gonna tell you all about it.
The show is called A Crime to Remember and each episode describes a true crime story from the excellent-hair era of the 1950s through the 1970s. The episode that I'm in is called "Who Killed Mr. Woodward?," about a society lady who "accidentally" shoots her husband. Note sure why there's a question mark in the title, since we know exactly who killed Mr. Woodward from the description:
"New York, NY, 1955. Ann and Billy Woodward are the darlings of New York society when tragedy strikes after a drunken dinner party. Billy lies in a pool of his own blood. Ann pulled the trigger by accident...or so she says."
Shouldn't it instead be called "Did Ann Kill Mr. Woodward On Purpose?" I guess that doesn't have quite the same ring to it. ANYWAY.
You can watch the whole episode on Hulu right here, which I suggest you do, since it's full of pretty people and pretty locations. But since you might miss me (or, fine, might not want to watch the whole thing) I took screenshots of my best moments for you:
In which I am a society lady asking for a drink at a party:
In which I am the same society lady, loudly exclaiming something, totally unaware of the people plotting violent revenge in front of me:
In which I am a new society lady, gossiping with other society people:
In which I am society lady number two again, trying hard to look interested in this dude who can't dance:
In which I am a department store shopper in awe of the beautiful hat model (clearly this is my best moment, because it doesn't even need an arrow):
This was shot in the summer of 2013, back when I was working in retail and had random weekdays off. It was a very long day, with a long of sitting around, but that wasn't a bad thing when I was used to standing all day. I had magazines, craft services, and a bunch of other cool extras to hang out with. Plus, the Bronx mansion we shot in, which you see in most of the scenes, was gorgeous, and I got to get all fancied up in three different outfits.
It's cool to watch it again, since I only saw it once after it first aired. And now that it's on Hulu, guess I'm gonna blow up and be famous, because everyone will want to know who that spaced out woman in the department store was, right? Right.
Thanks for indulging me and my fleeting moments of fame. Here's me in a gown with a tractor:
See you in Hollywood, I guess!
