It's Labor Day! So Theresa and I went over to the neighbor's house for some delicious hot dogs and hamburgers. Then it was back home, where we watched the Douglas Sirk film ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS, starring Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman. In the little booklet that came with the DVD, Sirk is quoted as saying, "There is a very short distance between high art and trash, and trash that contains an element of craziness is by this very quality nearer to art." And I was like, "You said it, Douglas Sirk!" In fact, I made a mildly related observation on this very "blog" once, only not as well. So don't take it from me! Take it from Douglas Sirk. Over and out. (P.S. That's Jane Wyman in the picture but that's not Rock Hudson, of course. It's the guy who plays her crummy son.)
