Murder and Men - Just The Ticket

I might have to put this on my “to-do” list. “Murderers” by Jeffrey Hatcher.

The Women” by Clare Boothe Luce will be showing at ACT theatre, October 11 - November 18. “The Women” is one of my all-time favorite movies! (Remember "Jungle Red" nail polish?) I don’t think there is a man in the movie but the story is all about relationships gone bad with men. Norma Shearer never looked more beautiful and Joan Crawford plays a role that I suppose is more like her true character.

“Sharpen your claws: In this super-stylish, venomously funny 1930s comedy, a baker’s dozen of Seattle’s top actresses play a group of gleefully backstabbing women who confront marriage, gossip, divorce and friendship—all over a manicure. Beneath the tart tongues and arched eyebrows is a serious consideration of the not-so-good-old days, and of what women are left with when culture strips them of power. You’ve come a long way, baby. Mee-ow.”

I got a copy of The Women in my Joan Crawford boxed set last year. I hadn't seen it in years-wonderful dialog. I got Mildred Pierce too. I adore that movie. The family gave me a Bette Davis boxed set with Mr Skeffington that I loved seeing again and Jezebel. Wow-whoda thunk Bette could be so pretty. She was downright lovely in Jezebel.
How are you Dear? I just got back from vacation-too much good food-I feel like a weeble
