Your Favorite Boudoir Scene

10 posts in this topic

The question was inevitable especially in this day and age. Please be discreet.

One of my favorite boudoir scenes are in the movie "Coal Miner's Daughter" with Sissy Spacek as Loretta Lynn and in "Trains, Planes and Automobiles" with Steve Martin and John Candy stuck overnight in a motel room which was hilarious.

Let's read about yours.

A delightful topic, mongo. Here's a few examples from the classics:

 

Best Years of Our Lives: The morning after arriving home from the war, Myrna Loy and Frederic March,(who is nursing a well-earned hangover), find themselves alone, the children out of the house, no where to go but here, in their bedroom. They're a couple who've been married for almost 20 years, but the separation and the changes that they've experienced during the war make them filled with longing, a little awkward, a bit courtly, and a little frightened--none of which is expressed explicitly in the dialogue, but in things like the nervous way that March fingers the ties on his robe while trying to smooth back down his hair, and the stiff manner in which Loy holds the breakfast tray in front of herself, like a shield. She finally sets that darn tray down, he takes her in his arms, and you just know that breakfast is going to have to wait for something far more important.

 

Again, in BYOL, an effective bedroom scene comes when Homer,(Harold Russell) allows his girlfriend Wilma, (Cathy O'Donnell) to help him with his nightly routine preparing for bed in his boyhood room. When his prosthetic hands are removed, he explains that at that time, he's really helpless until morning. He thinks that she will be repulsed and that he's done this to make Wilma face the fact that she couldn't possibly love a man with his handicap--but instead the love just shines out of her eyes and the scene ends in an awkwardly ardent embrace.

 

Gone With the Wind: the day after ole Rhett has carried that dang Scarlett up that staircase, she awakens with one of the most seductively kittenish expressions of satisfaction that has ever been filmed. Too bad the two start to misunderstand one another the minute they start to speak to one another again!

 

Two Ellen Barkin boudoir scenes in modern cinema also come to mind as faves:

 

The Big Easy: the bedroom scene between Dennis Quaid and Ms. Barkin in what is essentially a cops and robbers story are definite standouts due to the unusually (for movies) female POV--outstanding. I don't think Quaid's appeal here has ever replicated in any of his other films, though he's very good in Frequency and The Rookie--but not devastatingly attractive.

 

Sea of Love: it's been awhile since I've seen this one, but the interplay between Barkin and Al Pacino is quite erotic during their first tryst in his bedroom. BTW, Pacino looks like a man about to have a breakdown in this movie--in reality, Barkin's ferocity would probably have killed the poor guy.

Jean Harlow's scenes in "Dinner at Eight." Apparently she's a well kept woman who spends most of her time in bed, from entertaining her favorite Park Avenue doctor to quarreling with her husband to being blackmailed by her maid.

Well there is that rather unique scene between Peter Sellers (Chauncey), who likes to watch, and Shirley MacLaine (Eve) in "Being There";-)

I know this is silly but I still love the scene where Curly lies down on the triple decker bunk bed and crashed thru and lands on Larry and then both crash thru again and land on Moe and then all 3 end up in a pile on the floor. "Boudior" INDEED! Receed, Mongoose!

Almost forgot the scene where Fay Wray is helpless on the bed while King Kong pulls it toward him with one finger to recapture his blonde beauty for the eventual trip to the Empire State Building.

Although it's the day after that fiery night when Rhett Butler swept Scarlett into his arms and up that fabulous staircase, it was a hoot to see Miss Scarlett happy and singing in her boudoir...at last.
