I have decided that I will reblog this every time it comes across my dash because it makes me laugh until I think I’m going to puke.
East of Eden (1955) dir. Elia Kazan
…it’s awful not to be loved. It’s the worst thing in the world. Don’t ask me how I know that. I just know it. It makes you mean and violent and cruel. And that’s the way Cal has always felt, all his life. I know you didn’t mean it to be that way, but it’s true. You never gave him your love. You never asked him for his. You never asked him for one thing.
EVERYTHING I DO !!!
(this is no different)
You never doubt Stanwyck’s authority as a pianist, and there is a good reason for this.
Miss Stanwyck was coached for playing the piano by Ania Dorfman. True to her desire for perfection, Stanwyck practiced two to three hours daily for about a month. At the end she herself could play the relevant pieces.
- Director Andre de Toth (The Other Love, 1947)
