The Red Queen Says Watch This
I have said that the only thing that would ever tempt me to marry would be if I could elope to Venice with Cary Grant. But actually it is the character that he plays in this movie, People Will Talk, that I really want to run away with.
This movie, made in 1951, is still timely. The movie mangages to cover topics like evolution, farm subsidies, unplanned pregnancy, academic snobbery, unjust legal systems, and everything that makes my heart beat a little faster. It does have a bit of 50's chauvinism, but for the time it was made it is deliciously progressive.
If you need a happy little pick me up and like watching small-minded men made smaller by their own devices- watch this movie.
