To name three classic movie momentsthat made me buy things, do things and or think things
that maybe I shouldn't have.
I always remembered the frustrated passion of the other Scarlett when she stood in the turnip field in 'Gone with the Wind' - shook her fist at the sky and vowed ' As God is my witness I'll never go hungry again!' Years later with the same passion I stood behind the yew hedge in the garden and vowed I would never be dependent on a man again. After weeks of schmoozing I had been refused money for a new bathing costume. My tears were real.
Oh the glamour of the fag - the intimacy of sharing a smoke. In 'Now Voyager' Paul would put two cigarettes in his mouth - light them and give one to Bette and she would say 'Don't let's ask for the moon Jerry - we have the staaaaaaaahs!' I was only 13 but once I had the excuse of the sweat and strain of taking finals I took up the weed and puffed for Britain.
' Where do the noses go?' Ingrid asked Gary before their first kiss. She was so beautiful with her cropped hair so I had mine all chopped off. No Gary for me and the head boy at school who I fancied said 'Oh you've done it now!' He still phones me though. No pressure - the challenge is open to anyone but I'd love the hear Naomi's, Eryl's and Kim's if they can find the time.
