Oh, Heather? Heather H.? I pulled your name out of my hat as the winner of the Timeline DVD! Go ahead and e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know where to send it! I hope you enjoy it! I’m all nervous now! Ahhhhhhhhhh!
AND onward to another weird, inexplicable Marcia contest! And this one isn’t maybe quite as va-va-va-voom as last weeks…and least to you…but to me…it reveals one of my secret, scandalous, deep dark intrigues…Tennessee Williams films. I know, I know…don’t got there! Weird, huh? Especially coming from me, right? But, it’s a truth…a weird, random, inexplicable fact…Marcia kind of digs Tennessee Williams (the playwright) films. I know! I know! I’m crazy! So many of them are sad and stuff…i.e. This Property is Condemned (the song from that still wafts through my brain every once in awhile…probably because I saw that movie as a kid and my mom used to hum that song all the time.) However, they intrigue me so much! For instance, I love the way the old 1951 movie version of A Streetcar Named Desire captures the hot, moist, dark, slow southern ways of New Orleans at the time. Okay…and Marlon Brando is a WOWZER in that movie…even though he is a total jerk!
Then there’s Suddenly Last Summer! Fabulous movie…though very dark with disturbing (very disturbing) insinuations and undertones! Still, it’s incredible and Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor just sizzle in anything they were together in (See Youtube video below). Katherine Hepburn was amazing, too!
So, no that my scandalous secret is revealed, I can tell you that I also love Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof! I know, huh! Super Scandalous! BUT…this is one of the rare Tennessee Williams movies that end happily…and least in my opinion! I always want a happy ending…and even though it’s all dramatic and you hate some of the characters and love others, it does have a happy ending! Furthermore…I never was a huge Paul Newman fan…but HELLO? In this movie…fo sho!!!!
Therefore, in case you haven’t guessed it yet…the new weird/random/nearly inexplicable contest for this week is for a copy of the DVD of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof! I’m so scandalous! Ahhhhhhhhh! Same drill, comment here, on Facebook or e-mail me to enter! Do leave your thoughts on Tennessee Williams films if you feel up to it, too! I love hearing your thoughts!
AND don’t forget to watch the Monty and Liz video below! I LOVE them as a couple! I like to imagine that they were!
