Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Beaches (1988)

Hillary: I'm not stubborn, I'm... right. 

I can't tell you how often I use that quote. It's the truth! Anyway when I saw today was Barbara Hershey's 67th birthday I knew I had to make it a Better Midler Movie Theme Week (we just celebrated the 25th anniversary of Stella earlier) and give my beloved Beaches a little smooch.

Funnily enough Beaches just came up a few days ago...
In Appropriate Behavior the lead character Sherin (played by writer-director Desiree Akhavan) makes some crack about her lesbian sleeping arrangements mirroring those of the Bette Midler & Barbara Hershey characters in Beaches, saying that C.C. & Hillary slept in the same bed. THEY MOST CERTAINLY DID NOT. They had two separate beds that were in two separate rooms but there was a large open window frame between the two, and so they sat and chatted and sang their Christmas songs to each other through this window.

I'm not stubborn -- I'm right!
