one-off at the wrist

vanishing point

One of my favourite films [must have seen it at least 50 times]. It has so many iconic moments and ‘clever’ plot ideas. The drunken murder attempt by car [you even forgive the obvious back screen protected landscape]. The drunk ‘walk the line’ scene. The ‘interrupt the auction’ scene. The famous crop duster plane chase. The escape across Mount Rushmore. The comedy. The romance [of course Cary Grant made his name originally in ‘screwball’ comedies with Katherine Hepburn]. The breath taking ‘still lives’ [the 2 strangers facing each other across an empty road in a barren landscape]. The memorable film score.

Sheer joy. Don’t make them like that any more.
