Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

The Last Picture Show (1971)

Lois: You slept with him?
Jacy: Mama! 
Lois: Go to the doctor sometime and arrange
something so that you don't have to worry about babies. 
You do have to be careful of that, you know. 
Jacy: But, Mama, it's a sin isn't it? Unless you're
married? You know I wouldn't do that.
Lois: Don't be so mealy-mouthed! I thought if you
slept with him a few times you might find out that
there isn't anything magic about him.

Happy 50 to this masterpiece today.

I always think of young Jeff Bridges whenever this movie comes up; then that is all I can think about for quite some time. Masterpiece.

Jeff is in his prime here but it's Ellen and Cloris I remember...and Ben Johnson.
