Yesterday I decided at have a severed Head Sunday. Today I thought I would write about it in lieu of my usual Monstrous Monday Post. I began with Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte with Bette Davis, Olivia de Havilland, Joseph Cotten, Agnes Moorehead, Victor Buono, and Mary Astor. Just to name everybody.
I love Hush, Hush but do not pop it in very often, because it is so long. I guess I have a short attention span, but I do enjoy watching several movies of 90 minutes or less.
A few days ago I was disappointed to be unable to find my DVD of StraitJacket (starring Joan Crawford, of course). Yesterday I had better luck. In fact, I was surprised I had not found it before, because it was not that far out of alphabetical order. However, I feel it was just as well I had not watched it before, because it fits so well with my Severed Head theme of the day.
It seems this post is longer on pictures than words, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. I’m not even sure it can count as a Severed Head Sunday since I only watched two movies with severed heads. Full disclosure: my first movie was Rope, which features a strangulation, but the victim’s head remains attached (that did not require a spoiler alert; it happens in the very first scene).
No matter. It is Monday, and it has not been as monstrous as it might have been. Once again, I thank you for tuning in.
