... you can learn from:
The Honeymoon Killers (1970)
Martha Beck: Imagine... a birthday party forPresident Lincoln. Now I've seen everything.
The great Shirley Stoler was born 91 years ago today -- I've written up some more extensive thoughts on her before but TCM was showing this movie specifically in the mid-afternoon a week... a couple of weeks... oh who knows. Recently! TCM was showing this movie in the middle of the afternoon on one of these accursed plague days and I was kind of aghast...
Well I thought I’d get something done this afternoon but then @tcm went and showed The Honeymoon Killers and I definitely needed to watch it for the twentieth time so pic.twitter.com/wUyR1zC3Y7— Jason Adams (@JAMNPP) March 20, 2020
... (read: delighted) that I was able to watch on a basic cable channel Shirley Stoller smash an annoying old woman's head in with a hammer while the sun shone outside. I know I might sound like a commercial for TCM sometimes but god I wish -- I'd be their spokesperson any day. I'd also be Martha Beck's spokesperson any day. She knew how to do it. Lay around, eating chocolates, fucking hot Tony Lo Bianco and getting rich. Queen!
