talkie thursdays.

the great escape (1963).

2013-06-12_18.41.38 2013-06-12_19.21.552013-06-12_19.23.442013-06-12_20.25.072013-06-12_20.51.012013-06-12_20.54.27 last night we went and saw the great escape in the theatre. my husband had never seen it before, and i had only seen it once many years ago. for me, seeing it on the silver screen was like experiencing it again for the very first time.

what a great talkie!

based on a novel, which is based on true events, this film featured steve mcqueen, james garner, and charles bronson as the protagonists. it also managed to weave heavy themes into an overall lighthearted, and often humorous approach. although a little on the lengthy side, this is an excellent example of great cinematic storytelling.

if you like wwii era movies, or prison break movies, then you must see the great escape. even better, try to catch it in the theatre if it comes your way!

over and out. :-)

p.s. all of the photos were taken last night with my phone camera. i wasn’t going for quality, people. :-)

  • Choose love. Thank you all for the love on my previous post. Grief is an awful thing that each and every one of us go through. I'm so thankful for this amazing community of wonderful people. I know I haven't been very present on it lately (or probably too present to some of you), but much has changed and I'm trying to focus more on "real life" as opposed to these beautiful, tiny squares that offer us snippets into other worlds. That's not to say that I find @Instagram any less important! I still consider it to be a vital part of social media and love it to death. I'm merely going through personal stuff. I plan to return to posting daily once things have settled down over here. Until then, keep showing me photographs of your lives. I cherish such views. (Here's a picture from last week's engagement session.)
