Out of the Blue

Some movie watching was part of escaping the snow over the weekend here in the BlueTower, and two of the films on the bill were North By Northwest and Notorious, in part because I wanted to address my lack of appreciation of Hitchcock. For some reason I had only previously seen a few of his works, and the only one that really stood out was Rebecca. This seems like it all ties in some way together this morning as I see the coincidental news of the death of Rebecca star Joan Fontaine. This was the second coincidence I noticed about this, because I was struck while watching North By Northwest that the cast includes Leo G. Carroll and Ed Platt, each of whom played heads of spy agencies in 60s TV series, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and Get Smart respectively, which I think was pretty cool. Oddly, Platt's character was named Victor Larrabee, and his assistant on Get Smart was also named Larabee. I better stop now, before one of these spy agencies realizes I know too much.

R.I.P.: Peter O'Toole, star of Lawrence of Arabia, dies aged 81.
R.I.P.: Legendary Actress Joan Fontaine Dies at 96.
R.I.P.: Tom Laughlin, Star of 'Billy Jack,' Dead at 82.

Victory needs no explanation; defeat allows none.
