That title is purely for alliterative purposes and not an accurate reflection of this post’s contents. At least, I will talk about a movie, and today is Monday. It was a little after matinee hours when we watched the movie, and in fact we watched it on Sunday. OK, I’m not even going to talk that much about the movie. This is going to be a really stupid post, but at least I will try my hardest NOT to whine about how I can’t write a decent post today.
We all know I love cheesy movies. It should come as no surprise, then, that I adore William Castle. I adore him not only for the cheese factor in his flicks, though: he is ENTERTAINING! The man truly loved his audiences and intended to give them a thrill. I am slowly acquiring a collection of DVDs of Castle movies. Recently Steven gave me I Saw What You Did (1965), starring the inimitable Joan Crawford. We watched it yesterday, when I had finished swooning over my blog post.
I’ve used this photo before, mostly for the gorgeous necklace. That is a necklace to die for, or to kill for, or, you know, to find somewhere and pay money for. Crawford’s part in this movie is really not all that major or even pivotal (my favorite description of a small role). But it’s Joan Crawford. I gotta love a movie with Joan Crawford.
Now that I think of it, Crawford’s role is pivotal, because… wait a minute. I did not include a spoiler alert. I won’t put one in now. Watch I Saw What You Did, the 1965 version. It’s a fun flick. William Castle, I salute you.
I close with a picture of the master himself. I may watch another William Castle movie tonight. Happy Monday, everyone.
