I just finished tacking “Two Worlds”, signed it and packed it up to be sent to its new home. I’ll drop it in the mail on the way to the movies this afternoon.
That’s right, Jon and I are quitting early and going to see “Beauty And The Beast” in 3D. I will see almost any movie if it’s in 3D, but I have heard this version of the story is a good one.
Angela Carter’s retelling of the story, called “The Courtship of Mr. Lyon” is my favorite so far. The beast in that story is a lion. But I love the cinematography of Jean Cocteau’s film version too.
I never forgot the one moment in the TV version (was it from the 1970’s) with George C. Scott when Beauty sees the beast eating dinner. He’s in the garden or woods, tearing a deer apart with his teeth after hunting it down.
I’ll let you know how it is. Gotta go feed the animals now, then to the post office and the movie.
