RE: [mythsoc] movie images and Great Expectations
- Yah I never liked the Oz movie and I liked the books when I discovered them
at a friend's house years later. I thought Judy Garland was way too old
and made-up and just dopey! Just a dopey flick. And I like cheesey but I
guess I don't like cutesy.
The books were good, strange but good. Love that flying sofa.
And I don't think of any movie images when I read my beloved Mowgli
stories, either. "Down, Rama, down!"
