French Exit. Kind of what would happen if Woody Allen wrote Auntie Mame. I enjoyed it, my wife did not.
You two sold me. I’m going to watch it right now.I think I've commented this before. But one of the best elements in the film is William Holden's narration. He speaks in a hushed voice throughout, like someone talking on the telephone who does not want to be overheard in the next room. It -- along with the dimly lit rooms of Norma's mansion -- gives the film a claustrophobic quality.
It was also parodied at least once on The Carol Burnett Show. I saw that before I ever caught the original -- so the first time I ever watched the actual movie, I had a hard time taking it on its own terms. The second time I viewed the movie, though, the parody had receded far enough into the past for me that the film could stand by itself.Sunset Boulevard. It was a good flick. I enjoyed it. I was surprised how many scenes from this film were parodied in season 8 of the cartoon “Archer (Dreamland).”
I understand She will be portraying Moiraine Demodred in a Wheel of Time (Robert Jordan) tv series. Strikes me as a very good casting! Should be a great opportunity for a huge cast too!She's one I'd pay to see read the phone book. One of the best Bond girls of all time.
