and trying not to drown

This evening we went to see Rear Window at the beautiful Redford Theatre. I love that place and it was really nice to see lots of folks came out to see the movie. The parking lot was almost full and I figure there were around 300 or 400 folk in the audience.

I'd never seen Rear Window before and didn't really know anything about it other than it was a Hitchcock movie. It was good and Grace Kelly was everything I'd ever heard.

It'd be no surprise if you knew how diligently I've avoided Hitchcock movies. I saw The Birds as kid (on tv) and when I was in college I went to see Psycho with my boyfriend. Psycho was pushing my limits and I was not at all pleased about how dark/late at night it was when the theater let out.

I'm a big chicken. I once told a friend that my tolerance for suspense and violence was about as great as his then eight-year-old daughter. We were talking about the scene with the wolves in Beauty and the Beast -- and it had frightened her and it had also frightened me. (And I was an adult at the time.)

I won't laugh. Cower, maybe, but not laugh.

My (adoptive) mom's three favorite movies were Gone With the Wind, the Wizard of Oz, and Born Free. I have an aversion to all three -- although I did watch GWTW as an adult and didn't hate it. I can remember passing through the living room when The Sound of Music was on, but I wouldn't stick around for it either. I can't think of any movies I really loved as a kid. As a teenager I was into old mystery movies and spy flicks, not that any titles are coming to mind. Besides Topkapi. I'd love to see that again. And to see Rafifi, its brother movie.

ETA: typos fixed. (i hope)
