Th-th-that's all folks!   

Recent email exchange with B. Kite:

We were talking about that moment in VERTIGO where Jimmy Stewart (in Britain we call him JAMES) is trying to get Kim Novak to change her hairdo, the better to resemble his dead love, and he cries out, “Judy, please — it can’t matter to YOU!”

Me: Always gets a knowing laugh from women. Not a bad laugh, just a shocked one.

B. Kite: It’s rare to see a base human response put so succinctly. In that it’s a bit like Daffy Duck’s great “I’m not like other people — pain hurts me.”Kim NovakKi-Duk Kim.

And that meeting of minds seems worth a blog entry in itself!
