Novel/Movie Series: Clark Gable

Clark Gable - new St. Simons Public Library Novel/Movie Series

Starts in January.

The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946)

From the very first scene between Cora (Lana Turner) and Frank (John Garfield) it's a duel to the death.

Cora: My husband tells me your name is Frank.
Frank: That's right.
Cora: Well Frank, around here, you'll kindly do your reading on your own time.
Frank: Your husband, Nick told me I was through for the day and I thought he was boss around here.
Cora: The best way to get my husband to fire you would be not doing what I tell you to do.
Frank: Well, you haven't asked me to do anything - yet.

the Postman Always Rings Twice

Lana Turner, one of the stars of "The Postman Always Rings Twice."

This 1946 film, based on the novel by James M. Cain was the third adaptation, one French and the other Italian.  It was thought for a long time that the novel was unable to be adapted into a film because of Hayes Office objections to the content.  But, after the successful adaptation of Cain's other two novels (Double Indemnity and Mildred Pierce) the studios were interested to film it.  

This film is considered to be one of the best of the films in the genre of Film Noir.

The Beatles at the Ritz

Yesterday at the Ritz Theatre, Brunswick, Georgia

This show was a tribute to the Beatles featuring songs from all eras.  What amazing music.  I feel lucky to have grown up with this music.  What a gift these four young men gave to the world.  I remember once being in Mexico City and going to the theatre to watch a movie about the Beatles.  It was so touching to hear the audience sing all the lyrics of the songs in English quietly along with the film.
