    I wonder if they are one of the theatres that TCM does special showings at. If not, they should be.

    Precodes with Katharine Hepburn

    Of course, that would have set off a string of studio Shakespeare films leading to which one would get the highest box office, and maybe even would have jumpstarted Olivier's Shakespeare in film desire. It is a shame no one back then thought about it.

    They could have done Romeo and Juliet for RKO.

    Shame we can never see that scene, we just have this photo. But, Kate did Shakespeare well. Shame she never did Shakespeare on film. The only thing close to it was The Lion In Winter (1968).

    I love touching my stick. It is smooth to stroke. It's the stuff my dreams are made of.

    Well, at least that's good enough to do a TCM Remembers montage.

    Women In Love (1969)

    It's been a while since I've read the book, but I can deduce that since his sisters were both younger than him, maybe his parents were actually better parents to his sisters than to him, and his mother knew it, and his father didn't care enough to change anything before he died. As for Gudrun, I remember reading how sexually liberating the 1920s were for women and since Britain got the head start on civil rights for women, Gudrun represents what was ahead that maybe Lawrence wanted to show and explore.

    There is no one left to represent the Lollipop Guild. Rest In Peace.

    Women In Love (1969)

    I think given the time period she was in and what the film explores "look at me!" is a good approach to performance- particularly in a barrier-breaking film such as Women In Love (1969). We did talk about the film before at ye olde Classic Film Union. I think her need was more than just sex, though. Before Gerald makes the next room wish they had what their room had, she does say to him that she wants more because she doesn't really know if he loves her the way she wanted to love him. Loerke at least paid attention to her and treated her like a person.

    Jlewis, I know its been a while, but I do miss reading your film analyses. If I can add something to this, is that when it came to the mirrors into Gerald's cold, sad soul, that maybe they reflect his desires- the first towards Rupert, who he is, the second away from Rupert towards Gudrun, who he is absent to, and the third, himself- conflicted, and going with convention. I also wanted to add that I guess we can count it progress that Rupert and Gerald are a step above Ben Hur and Massala, although I am sure Massala was freer in Rome.
