Strangers in the night

Wish I had a time machine , I would have gone back in time  & would re arrange the entire set up of my first date with R , it would be the time of sunset near a beach in an empty open air restaurant with Mojitos and Frank Sintara's  Strangers in the night playing in the background.

Rebecca (1940)

Last night at around 11 pm right when I was going to log off my laptop, I stumbled upon the movie -Rebecca on youtube &decided to watch (I dont know why I always end up surfing youtube till late in the night, only to complaint the next day how little I have slept). Ok so coming back to this film, It was made in 1940,  more than half a century from now (at the moment I am in a reading & watching classics mood) . I was searching for the book by the same name which inspired this movie but could not find it & I am very glad that I didnt.

 I always find it difficult to relate withe Old time movies & stories, but I was happy to find that this movie was different or may be my perspective is changing, I was in awe with all the characters & the story telling part & it kept me hooked till the end of the movie.I was mesmerized by the beauty of Joan Fontaine who played the role of second Mrs. De Winters, she remained nameless in the movie & at some points I wanted someone to call her by her first name, I wanted to know the character by her name but she remained Second Mrs. De Winters (weird but yes I am like that).

Mr. & Mrs. De Winters (Laurence Olivier & Joan Fontaine)

 Breakfast at Tiffany's made me fall in love with Audrey Hepburn & watching Rebecca made me realize that beauty  of Joan Fontaine is simply impeccable.

If ever I would have an opportunity to take part in a play my first choice will be definitely "Rebecca"

 We all have to start a new phase some or the other time but when the time comes it how a person reacts is what differentiate all of us.I always get scared to death ,& keep thinking why things are changing now.
"Change is only thing that is constant", I have read this phrase like a gazillion times but still the part of me which screams inside my head "I Dont want this change" needs a training, I need to see the brighter side of the upcoming change also.
