a few nights ago i went to 40 foot films for the screening of 'wait until dark.' now i love a good thriller, but i must admit i am among the jumpiest. there's one scene in particular that made me jump over my date. usually leap frog isn't a common movie-watching activity but i make good practice of it. in my defense, i like to think that my exaggerated movements are made up for by my lack of screams. i think i would have been the only one in the theater screaming if i didn't jump, haha!
i was unexpectedly inspired by the young actress julie herrod. she played gloria, audrey hepburn's guide. for those of you who don't know the film, audrey plays a recently-blind woman. those two team up in a dangerous attempt to beat the bad guys. you'll have to watch the film for the rest! if 12 year-old me and gloria ever met, i imagine we would have been great friends. a strong curiosity for real-life adventure and an affinity for antique toys would have been enough for us to make a life-long pact.
