…And I greeted the British invasion with swoons and shrieks. When John, Paul, George and Ringo sang “I Want to Hold Your Hand” on the Ed Sullivan Show, I was right there with all the girls in class picking out my favorite Beatle. ( Paul, of course. The Cute One ). I hadn’t realized back in 1964 that the first British Invasion first landed in Hollywood.
I enjoyed “WENT THE DAY WELL?“ immensely. Hitchcock could not have done a better job of supplying tension, suspense and thrills. ( Actually, I kind of think Hitch would, but I want to leave a sliver of admiration for other directors ).
“A CANTERBURY TALE” ( 1944 ) – This movie is as much about feelings, emotions…longings, memories, as it is of plot points and solving a mystery. It takes its own sweet time moving the plot along. In no great hurry, it weaves and wends its way as you might, walking down a country road in summer. We see vignettes of life.
