It is that moment on a Sunday when I realize: I’ve got to make my blog post, so I can get back to sitting on the couch, knitting, and watching television. It is movies rather than Snapped today, and we began with Sudden Fear, starring Joan Crawford, Jack Palance, and Gloria Grahame. I do enjoy a film noir on a gloomy Sunday (and almost any other day or weather), although ideally I like to sip Pinot Noir whilst I watch. However, you can’t have everything.
Speaking of other things I didn’t get today, I wanted to have a Severed Head Sunday. I have a number of movies that involve heads that part company as it were. Unfortunately, we have just recently watched two.
I think I even mentioned that I watched the heart-warming classic Straitjacket on Mother’s Day. Joan always played a mother so memorably.
We watched House on Haunted Hill last night. Actually, in that movie, real severed heads are only mentioned. The severed head you see turns out to be a fake. Oh dear, ought I to have included a spoiler alert for that? I don’t think it will materially injure anybody’s enjoyment of the movie.
It is early in the day, so I suppose I could still fit in a movie with severed heads. Maybe Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte.
Bette Davis, an unsolved murder involving a severed head, what’s not to like? For once, I’m not having a Wrist to Forehead Sunday.
