I thought of that title when we were mapping out our movie viewing for the day, and Steven insisted that I use it. I started out just wanting to watch an Agatha Christie adaptation. I picked And Then There Were None (1945) because it is black and white and I have been really into black and white movies lately.
I don’t know many of the actors in it, but the movie features one of my favorites: Judith Anderson. I suggested we next watch Laura (1944) then Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958) and make it a Judith Anderson film festival. Then I thought of the above title, and our plans were set.
I actually do not remember this scene in the movie, but I thought it was a good picture of Anderson. I would have loved to play Anderson’s role when Ilion Little Theatre did And Then There Were None (which was before my blogging days). At that time, a smaller part was better for me, and I did enjoy it.
I have always said that the real love story in Laura is between Judith Anderson and Vincent Price: “He’s no good, but he’s what I want.” If you have never seen the movie, I highly recommend it.
I couldn’t find a good picture of Anderson in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and I got tired of looking. I think this is the last movie we have with Judith Anderson, so we must move in a different direction if we wish to continue our Cinema Sunday. I hope my readers (if any) are having an enjoyable day.
