    Busses Roar

    ★★★

    They misspelled the title, lol... It should be “Buses Roar”, but I guess since it was a low budget B movie no one noticed or cared? 

    I watched it because I love Eleanor Parker and this was her first real film role. She was so young and pretty, and I thought she did very well! (I also liked Julie Bishop.)

    Live and Let Die

    I can’t rate this because I fell asleep and slept through most of it. I’m just logging it so I’ll remember which Bond movie it was, lol.

    Laura: “Nothing lasts really, neither happiness nor despair...”

    Alec: “I love you with all my heart and soul.”
    Laura: “I want to die. If only I could die.”

    I knew in the first 2 minutes I was going to love this one. It was one of the most beautifully shot, beautifully acted films I’ve ever seen! I adore Trevor Howard, and Celia Johnson was just lovely. She reminded me of Helena Bonham Carter. And that Rachmaninov score was so heart…

    Marty: "You don't like her. My mother don't like her. She's a dog. And I'm a fat, ugly man. Well, all I know is I had a good time last night. I'm gonna have a good time tonight. If we have enough good times together, I'm gonna get down on my knees. I'm gonna beg that girl to marry me. If we make a party on New Year's, I got a date for that party. You don't like her? That's too bad." 

    I love this sweet, simple movie. 💘
