Today I was not feeling well and decided to take the day off. I already had the day off work, so it was only a matter of letting myself off the hook regarding household chores. I had already mowed the back lawn when I decided, so I can comfort myself with the thought that at least I did something. A day off blogging, however, is a much more serious proposition, especially on Lame Post Friday.
Earlier today, we watched Evil Under the Sun, a star studded Agatha Christie romp. In fact, that is how I expressed it to Steven when I suggested a movie, “I could get into a star studded Agatha Christie romp.” I do love a good old movie, especially one featuring the divine Maggie Smith.
Since the movie, I have been looking at regular television in a rather desultory fashion. At least I have gotten some crocheting done.
Here is a scene from another Agatha Christie adaptation we recently viewed, Witness for the Prosecution. Although the cast includes Charles Laughton, Else Lanchester, Tyrone Power, and Marlene Dietrich, it is not a star studded Agatha Christie romp. Nonetheless, it is an excellent movie, directed by Billy Wilder.
This was not an Agatha Christie, but it was definitely a romp and we like to feel it is star studded. It is the LiFT, Little Falls Theatre Company, production of the interactive murder mystery, Rubbed Out at Ruby’s. Regular readers may remember that it was written by me. Do I flatter myself by including my mystery in a post about Agatha Christie? I daresay I do. Then again, a healthy ego is an asset for writers and actors. Happy Friday, everyone!
