grant me a cary

somebody please remake this. the title implies that this movie is light hearted. well, even if cary breezes his way through the excellent dialogue of 'people will talk' with his undeniable charm, it is a good story with plenty of weight. i wonder if people ever do a remake and not touch the script. this writing is just so dang good. after all, this is the writer who gave us 'all about eve.'

People Will Talk (1951)
110 min - Drama | Romance - 29 August 1951 (USA)

Director: Joseph L. Mankiewicz
Writers: Joseph L. Mankiewicz
Stars: Cary Grant, Jeanne Crain

jeanne crain almost teeters right over the edge into the 'too beautiful' category, but she is super in this. by the time it is over you will spend all your birthday wishes wishing every man was like cary grant is here. i suppose one could say that about any of his movies.

the movie is free this month on hulu: http://www.hulu.com/watch/226340/people-will-talk
