I have not had a Slacker Saturday post in a while, and I have certainly had a slacker day today. My husband, Steven, and I just hung out and relaxed. We watched a few movies, though, so I will attempt a Saturday Cinema post before going back to relaxing.
We started our viewing with Death on the Nile, a star-studded Agatha Christie which I love. The above picture is Angela Lansbury in the truly delicious role of Salome Ottorbourne, writer of lurid romance novels and murder suspect.
After Death on the Nile, I was in the Agatha Christie mood so suggested we watch Ten Little Indians (1965) ,which I had DVR’d from TCM recently. This is not to be confused with And Then There Were None (1945), which we own on DVD. Both are based on the same book, of course. However, in the 1945 version, the characters are on an island, as they are in the book. In the version we watched today, they ride a cable car up a mountain. I looked but could not find a picture of the movie we saw today. How’s that for slacking?
Now we are watching a favorite of ours: Strait-Jacket (1964). A William Castle thriller starring Joan Crawford as an ax murderess, how could I not love it?
I suppose we should have saved it for a Severed Head Sunday. I haven’t had one of those in a while either. As for today, I feel my slacking off has extended to my blog post. But at least I have included a couple of pictures. I’ll close with another of Joan. Happy Saturday, everyone.
