Can anyone argue with these lyrics?
Jenny made her mind up at 75 she would live to be the oldest woman alive, but gin and rum and destiny play funny tricks -- and poor Jenny kicked the bucket at 76.
Yeah, TMMillie was muy costumey and pretty disappointing for period clothes.

NOTE: I do not want any Jennies to kick the bucket now or at 76 but the lyrics of this song are v good in general and that's the part I always sing to myself when I think of this song. That and "Poor Jenny, bright as a penny -- her equal would be hard to find" and the part about how "she got herself a husband...but he wasn't hers."
There are times when Josephine Foster reminds me of Julie Andrews in the best possible way.

RIP your husband, Julie. My thoughts are with you. XOXOX

Ok, I love Julie Andrews. Still, I couldn't put my finger on it, but something about the whole smiling old timey trend reminded me of something, and I couldn't figure out what it was until I saw 5 minutes of Thoroughly Modern Millie just now (I have a night class, gotta wind down somehow) and realized that was it. The creepiness of fake nostalgia? Check. Corny? Check. Cutesy rather than cute? Clearly. It's not exactly the same, obvs, but it's at least one strain of the same bacteria.
It's not going to ruin my love of Julie Andrews because she was a lot more than whatever this is, but I cannot deny that the cardboard fake flappers and relentless smiling of the Lumineers cello girl have something in common.
