    Last night I watched "The Barefoot Contessa", directed and written by Joseph L. Mankiewicz in 1954. The film has been restored. Ava Gardner, Humphrey Bogart, Rossano Brazzi, Edmund O'Brien, Cyril Cuzack.

    Firstly, it was way too insubstantial to warrant its length. In a series of flashbacks from her funeral, the characters recall their relationship with the "Contessa" who is Spanish and manufactured into a famous movie star. No doubt Mankiewicz was satirizing the industry and its culture which he knew so well, but it failed on many levels; its disjointed narrative, unsympathetic characters and a lacklustre, melodramatic and implausible plot rendered this film an altogether tedious experience. There were some excellent lines - as Mankiewicz was a word-smith nonpareil - but it was too reminiscent of "All About Eve" made 4 years earlier with much more engaging characters and a vastly enlivened script. A director and writer of many fine films, but this wasn't one of them!!

    I have been keeping a list of all the movies I've been watching. I started my list last December when I changed my television cable vision provider and got a movie channel package. (That was fortuitous timing considering our current situation.) I've watched 88 movies since mid December, about 60 of those in the last two months.

    I also keep a music listening list, this goes back three years to 2017. I've also kept a list of all the books I've read; this list goes back to 1979 when I was fourteen when these books were required for English lit classes. I've just started keeping a list of all the different vegetables I eat - the challenge is to eat 40 different vegetables in a week for gut health.

    I know I'm weird.

    Not that weird. I started writing a lengthy reply regarding the vegetable remarks before I realized this was the last movie watched thread.

    I cannot even think of 40 vegetables, unless we are fairly loose in the definition.
