The Ghost and Mrs. Muir & Calabria Bakery PizzaTuesday, February 03, 2015
You can be much more alone with other people than you are by yourself, even if it's people you love. That sounds all mixed up, doesn't it?
Anybody turning on a TV and randomly tuning to Gone With the Wind would find it almost impossible not to linger or even see it to the end. There are some films like Gone With the Wind that are iconic for certain generations. My guess is that both of my daughters (in their 40s) would linger on Star Wars.
Rex Harrison’s voice is as memorable as Tierney’s unearthly beauty.
Just a few days after a dinner of homemade pizza (Calabria Bakery dough) Hilary, Lauren, Rosemary and I sat down in the den to see The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. This film is one of my Gone With the Wind type iconic films. I enjoy it every time and wonder where all those actors with wonderful voices have gone to. All I have to do is remember Sean Connery and Audrey Hepburn in Robin and Marian to almost grieve at the loss of the great voices (well Connery is still with us).But for me the real wonder is to watch Lauren, 12 and to realize that I was a lot younger when I saw The Ghost and Mrs. Muir and how wonderful that 65 years later there we are seeing it again. What would my mother have thought of Lauren her great granddaughter? Strange to see a film in which an older actress plays the very young Natalie Wood. When we first saw the film she was an unknown.
Next on the iconic lineup will be Laura.
