Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Gudrun: You don't think one needs
the experience of having been married?
Ursula: Gudrun, do you really think
it need be an experience?
Gudrun: It's bound to be possibly undesirable,
but still an experience of some sort.
Ursula: Not really.
More likely to be the end of experience.
Gudrun: Yes, of course, there is that to consider.

Even though it fights against everything in my nature I'm going to try to post about this movie without posting anything from the naked wrestling scene between Alan Bates and Ollie Reed, because it's the legend Glenda Jackson's 83rd birthday today and she deserves the goddamned attention for once. She is Glenda fucking Jackson, after all! Respect is synonymous. And in serendipitous news I'm actually going to see her on Broadway in King Lear this very weekend thanks to the generosity of a good friend of MNPP. (Thank you, beloved friend.) I'll try not to stop the show in the middle of her performance to ask her about the naked wrestling scene. I'll try. I can't make any promises. It won't be her birthday then.
