A Walk With Love and Death

Thank you all for your wishes
on me getting well soon. I'm
still not well yet. I'm on the
mend.

Last week on The Fox Movie
channel, I saw: A Walk with
Love and Death
directed by John
Huston in 1969.What drew me to the film,
it marks the film debut of Anjelica
Huston. Who was only 17 years old at
the time. I'm always fascinated to
see an actor's film debut. Even though
it's her first effort, you can see
the flashes of the strong Academy Award
winning actor she would become.

The film is set in France during
Hundred Years war. A student
named Heron (Assi Dayan) wants
to see the Sea. The tide of war
brings him to a chance encounter
to a noblewoman named Claudia
(Anjelica Huston). Under the
constant threat of war, their
love blooms.

Here is a trailer for you. Enjoy.
I'll be back on Sunday for my
400th post.

Oh Sweetness! I am so so sorry you are sick. I have been spotty on posting and visiting. I am sorry my well wishes are tardy!
Nothing worse than stomache flu. UGH.
I wish I could bring you some toast, tea and a hug.

Love Laurel

Dear Shell,

Just saw your last post. I hope you feel better soon and it is a testament to your kindness that you posted that regardless.

I never knew of the title of this film until you mentioned it, how do you find these obscurities? Delicious.

I did see a documentary with Huston (great Director) and they showed a clip of him directing Anjelica, even down to the pause, the glance, the raising of the eyes. It was like watching them dance.
