Those nights where i didnt have internet were rather nice because i got to watch a lot of television and movies. From my Gregory Peck collection that I got on my birthday I watched Cape Fear, Arabesque, and Mirage.
|Sam Bowden portrayed by Gregory Peck|
|Robert Mitchum as Max Cady|
|Wife portrayed by Polly Bergen and daughter by Lori Martin|
|Gregory Peck with Sophia Loren|
Not exactly the couple I'd imagine, but it worked...
The next movie I watched was Arabesque, with Gregory Peck and Sophia Loren. A spy caper of 1966 just a charming little film that I enjoyed and it was really rather hilarious. I'd recommend it!
And then I also watched Mirage (1965). This one was a doozy. Well okay so i started watching it and it just seemed slow to me. Interesting...but slow. The love story in it was cute...Walter Matthau was pretty good as well... but I dont know...i'll probably try watching it again in a while....
Okay so as promised in the title of this post... here's a little bit of the novel...Oh god "novel" sounds so serious....well here's a little bit of the story i'm working on...
Darkness. Everything important seemed to happen to him in the darkness. He was born at night, he lost his father at night all those years ago, he found out he was moving at night, and he would get lost in his music at night.
"Hey" he felt himself shaking. Shaking. Why was he shaking? He wasn't in California yet. "Bobby wake up." He groaned hoping it would go away. "Robert Michael Kelly do not groan at me! You get up this isntant young man, we're leaving soon!"
He heard a distinct clicking sound of a switch and felt the light pour into the room, slowly stripping him from the shelter of sleep. In all of his 16 years of life, he never wanted to stay in bed more than he wanted to now. They we're moving.
So... *crawls into a small ball and peeks out* what do you think?
and because I've been in a Gregory Peck mood all week and just to spite my friend who said i was going to do Desi or Larry first...Gregory Peck will be my first Stars That Will Never Fade (do you think that's too cheesy? because I'm gonna go with that right now unless i think of something better...) so here goes:
