Well, it wasn't a film promoting miracles like the Song of Bernadette.  That's for sure.  It thought in the end the stigmata was hysterical psychosomatic.

But Jane Fonda does go from being a complete disbeliever and a prosecutor to a much softer, almost spiritual person even when the facts do not support that journey.

I decided to sit down and watch this last night, and I had forgotten the great photography, especially of inside the convent of all of the Catholic imagery. And the photography of the Canadian countryside makes your country look, well, COLD! BRRRR!

5:45 p.m.  Being There (1979).  I’ve never cared for this film but have seen it a number of times trying to determine what I may be missing.  I guess I just find Sellers quite annoying.

You're not the only one.

12:15 a.m.  From Here to Eternity (1953).  I love the scene on Waikiki Beach with Diamond Head in the background and practically no buildings on it.

7 a.m.  Gandhi (1982).  Richard Attenborough’s biopic.

There is also a pretty good Indian restaurant named Gandhi's in Kennington, London.  It just needed an "all you can eat lunch buffet" sign.

8 p.m.  Hud (1962).  The new film To Olivia (2021) covers Patricia Neal making this film.

12:30 a.m.  Inherit the Wind (1960).  Hard to imagine that there was a time not long ago when people did not believe in evolution.  Actually they might as well remake it as a 2021 film.

10 p.m.  The Ladykillers (1955).  Alec Guinness, Peter Sellers, Herbert Lom .. but Katie Johnson steals the film.

4:15 p.m.  The Magnificent Ambersons (1942).  Great Orson Welles film.  I wish they might one day find his cut in some laboratory.

2:45 a.m.  The Night of the Iguana (1964).  I saw this on stage just pre-pandemic in London with Clive Owen.  He was good but the film works much better.  It is hard to contour the exotic location on a stage.

I'm looking forward to "The Picture of Dorian Gray" at six. I remember when Sally Field was the guest, she said she thought Hurd Hatfield's rather wooden performance was awful, but I kind of like it that way,  and I absolutely love Angela Lansbury in this.  Dorian's treatment of her is one of the most emotionally brutal things I've ever seen.

"Pillow Talk" will be a nice refreshment afterwards.  Tony Randall and Doris in the diner?  Hilarious.
