What movie would you live in?


Recommended Posts

The movie I would want to live in never is Rain Man.  Can’t think of a worse one except maybe The Untouchables with that awful actor Kevin Costner, boy that movie was rotten.  Musicals would be hard to live in but the girls usually show a lot of leg, and nice looking behinds, so it wouldn’t be that hard to live in one of those.

It would be far easier to name films I would hate to live in, but the fictional town of Chuckawalla, NV in Desert Fury (1947) does have gorgeous scenery even though it looks more like Arizona.   

I'd live in a big mansion with my hardboiled mom Mary Astor who owns the casino and has the local judge in her pocket. A lot of people would hate me because they're just jealous, but **** 'em.   We'd lounge around in Edith Head gowns and look at the view from my round picture window or I'd jump in my new car and go see Burt Lancaster, the smitten sheriff I keep on a string.  He alerts when lowlifes like Wendell Corey and John Hodiak arrive in town and always has my back.  Mom taught me well.

That's because it was filmed in Arizona, Katie. In fact, right where I presently reside, in Sedona.

The red rock formations you see in the background behind Hodiak and Scott here being Bell Rock on the left and Courthouse Butte on the right, and which are located less than a mile from where my house lies and from where I'm typing this response to you.

(...many movies, though primarily westerns, were filmed here in Sedona dating from the 1930s to the 1970s, and there's a neighborhood in West Sedona where the residential street have been named for some of these films, and such as Station West Dr., Broken Arrow Way, Last Wagon Dr., Flaming Arrow Way, Johnny Guitar St., and Gun Fury Rd.)

I actually own a book called LOCATION FILMING IN ARIZONA by Lili Debarbieri and plan to use it as a guide when I visit relatives in Phoenix.

If I could still have Wifi, I'd want to live in MEET ME IN ST LOUIS -- I love that house so much!

Before WiFi there were network cables, a little bit healthier to be around. 

Plus I'd do something about the overgrowth against the house as it will eventually cause problems with rodents and insects.  For the same reason I'd limit the decorative ivy to the outer perimeter of the porch.

Hope none of this ruins the allure of the house. 😁

I managed to pick this one up somewhere along the way, probably Reddit, but who knows.

At update of a musical classic brought to you by the NRA

That's true. Plus Julie can handle her firearms better than Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis combined.

So, in other words Tom, "The Americanization of Julie", eh?!  ;)

Well, if you live in a movie too long, you feel like moving on.  Today I thought while watching a Prisoner marathon that I’d like to wear one of those horizontal striped yellow and black shirts and play chess with Number 6.

I think it would be enjoyable to be a neighbor to the pervie uncle in Viridiana, having a run down

place like his and rusticate there. I wouldn't want to live in his house, but they would be entertaining

country companions, minus the shoe fetish and the "Last Supper" riff raff hanging around. That last

problem could be solved with a good fence. A very fetching location for doing not much of anything.

 

And 221-B Baker Street seemed to be a nice and cozy place to settle down in, especially on a cold and

rainy night in London. If all the Victorian dust collectors got to be too much, some could always be

put in storage. A warm fire, a good book, and Mrs. Hudson bringing in some tea and muffins. Elementary.

I'd like to live in the small icy village in THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS /or/ the cold Russian countryside in the 1967 Soviet horror film THE VIY ["Spirit of Evil"].   Even the village several miles from Nosferatu's castle looks like fun -- provided you wear a neck guard at night.  🩸

I sweated to death for years living in FL so I'm into COLD these days.  🥶

Nope! I'm eager to see it. I take it you've seen it . . . and wouldn't recommend it?

You take it correctly. It is the most un-Russ Meyer movie there is. None of the things you expect are there. It's duDD.
