I’ve never had the attention span for movies. I dread going to the movies because when you mix comfy chairs, dark rooms, and a 2 - 3 hour wait until I see daylight again … well I’m bound to doze off and waste my $10. Plus $10 is a freaking rip off! Don’t get me started!
Much to my mother’s amazement there was always one movie that could not only keep my attention but would cause me to stare blankly at the screen without as much as a fidget or a blink - My Fair Lady. Now mind you, this movie is a whopping 173 minutes! When they show it on public television without commercial they take a break and play the orchestra so people can get up to pee! I have a very vivid memory of the first time my mother allowed me to stay up watching television past both mine and her bed time and it was for this movie. When the orchestra came on I just sat there and watched the screen, which was covered in white flowers, while the music of “I could have danced all night” became permanently etched into my brain.
It should come as no surprise that I want nothing more than for my hair to look like this:
Ok, so maybe not as high as this but pretty close. How could anyone not want to look like that? I need to go home tonight and watch this again. Maybe I can get some planning inspiration because I'm not finding it any other place right now :(
