Hello ladies and gents
Today’s post is going to be a little different from usual. There’s no discussing hem lengths and lipstick shades involved. This is a subject that is very dear to me and hopefully you can take something from it.
I just finished watching George Seaton’s 1954 drama “The Country Girl” starring Grace Kelly and Bing Crosby. Grace Kelly received an Academy Award for her stellar performance in the film.
The film explores the efforts of Frank Elgin, a struggling washed-up actor to rise to the circumstances when he finally lands a lead role in a musical play, directed by Bernie Dodd who strongly believes in him from the very beginning. The film also explores his relationship with his wife Georgie who is the behind-the-scenes supporter and the one who carries the burden of a secret that looms over their marriage and is the cause for her husband’s demise.
