For lack of anything better to record on the DVR, I found a movie on Turner Classics last night: It was rated three stars (out of four), and had lots of big-name actors and actresses. I'd never heard of the movie, entitled "The Chase".
So, Cliff came in to eat his dinner today (spaghetti), and I figured we'd watch the first part of the movie before he went to work, while we ate.
He actually had to point out to me which person was Jane Fonda; which was Robert Duvall (one of my favorite actors); and which one was Marlon Brando! We won't even talk about Robert Redford, because I didn't recognize him, either... although I did recognize his hunkiness. Is that a word?
About fifteen minutes into the film, Cliff picked up the laptop, bored, and said, "This is sort of a 'Peyton Place', isn't it?"
"The Chase" was made in 1966, the year Cliff and I got married. Peyton Place, the TV series, seems to have begun in 1964.
Movies certainly were corny in sixties, weren't they? I guess I'll be watching the rest of "The Chase" alone.
*People sure did smoke a lot of cigarettes back in the '60's.
