I was going to call this a Throwback Thursday Post to when I decided to watch old movies on my day off. The only question is whether I will have sufficient pictures to make it interesting.
The first picture I see is of our second feature, Being Julia starring the wonderful Annette Bening.
Here is a revolting development: I cannot find illustrations for Rear Window, which we watched before, or Gosford Park, which we are watching now.
I’ve loved Rear Window for years and often remember the first time I saw it, on a small black and white television in a crappy apartment in Potsdam, NY. Yes, the good old days, when we were neither good nor old nor were they days, they were nights.
That took me a long time, to find appropriate illustrations. The above is from Gosford Park, a rather delightful murder mystery set in the 1920’s, one of my favorite eras. I have written a couple of murder mysteries that take place in the 1920’s. I do not rule out writing a few more. People love the 1920’s. Is it the beads? Is it the booze? Is it the fringey dresses? Or is it the jazz music? So much to love!
It is also very enjoyable to write a blog post about watching movies on a hot and sticky night. Some people love summer. I do not. To each his own, as the old lady said when she kissed the cow.
