I'm a little slow today. I just switched to Sanka. So...have a heart?

Movie I recommend:

Imitation of Life, 1934 version with Claudette Colbert and Louise Beavers.

So depressing on so many levels... But a great movie. You really, really should see it, if nothing else, for Louise Beavers' performance.

Netflix it, NOW.

There are 2 versions of this movie. The one you're talking about happens to be my pick of the 2! This one was directed by John Stahl and really does have fantastic performances. The remake was done by Douglas Sirk in 1959 with Lana Turner and it's not NEARLY as good. However, it's interesting to watch both and compare.

I have the Double-Feature Edition from Netflix, so I'm going to watch the 1959 version tonight. :)
