Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

you can learn from:

East of Eden (1955)

Abra: Mr. Trask, it's awful not to be loved. It's the worst thing in the world. Don't ask me - even if you could - how I know that. I just know it. It makes you mean, and violent, and cruel. And that's the way Cal has always felt, Mr. Trask. All his life! Maybe you didn't mean it that way - but it's true. You never gave him your love. You never asked for his. You never asked him for one thing.
The great Julie Harris was born on this day in 1925.

Happy Birthday, Julie Harris. I had the good fortune of seeing her as Emily Dickinson in The Belle of Amherst at the Guthrie in 1976. It was one of the greatest performances I've ever seen!

A great actress, sorely missed. I too saw her in Belle of Amherst but much later than '76 when she was touring in it. I concur it was one of the most brilliant pieces of acting ever. Beautiful and intimate, warm and profoundly moving.
