We were supposed to be watching cheesy movies. I am wearing my t-shirt from Original Herkimer Cheese, which says, “Keepin’ It Cheesy Since 1949.”
I gave Original Herkimer Cheese one of my favorite plugs in a murder mystery for the Herkimer County Historical Society.
One character tells another she looks remarkably like Frangelica Inferno, “Uh, not that I watch porn movies.”
Character that looks like Frangelica: “She was not a porn star! Those were art films!”
Another character: “Oh, please, those movies are as cheesy as Chutter from Original Herkimer Cheese!”
I do love chutter, and Original Herkimer Cheese. But I digress. My original subject was cheesy movies, which I adore to watch on Wrist to Forehead Sunday. We watched a good one last night, The Tingler, starring Vincent Price and directed by William Castle. We thought of continuing the Price/Castle theme today with House on Haunted Hill. However, I had also mentioned All About Eve as a possibility. Steven was more interested in All About Eve. How could I possibly object to a Bette Davis classic?
After All About Eve, Steve suggested another favorite of ours, Being Julia, starring the divine Annette Bening. In addition to being one of my all time favorite movies, this one seemed related to All About Eve, because both are about highly talented, greatly admired stage actresses who have just a little bit of trouble in their offstage lives.
I am having a bit of trouble in my offstage life these days, as well as onstage, but how tiresome of me it would be to cry about it now, even on Wrist to Forehead Sunday. Additionally, I have movies to watch. For a blog post, this will have to do. I hope to see you all again on Monstrous Monday.
