Well, I spent another day NOT writing a blog post while on breaks at work. In my defense, my light-headed-ness continued. In my — what? accusation? prosecution? Somebody get me a thesaurus! — it was not as bad as yesterday. Well, these things happened, and blog posts must be made. Why, you may ask. I say, because they are not there. See what I did there? Thus, mildly pleased with myself, I continue with this week’s Witless Wednesday post.
First I throw in a random picture, so this can be a kind of a Wordless Wednesday as well (not that I am every completely wordless). Here is Bette Davis, committing the murder that begins The Letter (1940). I thought a picture from a murder movie would be appropriate, because the rehearsal I am about to go to is for a murder mystery. Unfortunately, the murder in The Letter is no mystery. At least, not unfortunately for the movie; it’s a great movie. Unfortunately for the picture being entirely appropriate. I did mention this is Witless Wednesday, did I not?
Here is a picture from an authentic murder mystery, Laura (1944). In my mind, this is the real romantic couple of the picture, never mind Gene Tierney and Dana Andrews.
The murder mystery we are rehearsing is A Trivial Murder, an interactive dinner theatre to be presented March 23 at the Travel Lodge in Little Falls, NY, to benefit Herkimer County Historical Society. Doors open at 5, dinner starts at 6. Cost is $25 per person. For more information, contact the historical society at 315-866-6413.
