I was sad to learn that Julie Harris passed away. I think she must have been a very sweet woman because she took the time to have someone write a letter back to me, when she was not able to after one of her strokes. East of Eden is one of my all time favorite movies. I felt that she was a great Abra because of how caring she acted towards Cal. I love the scene at the fair and the one where he goes to her window. Ah, such a good movie! Great book, as well.
I like the movie, The Haunting (1963). I actually get angry thinking about the remake. I watched the remake as a kid and it was scary then, but now, that remake is unwatchable. The original Haunting, however, is worth seeing. Not terribly scary, but nice cinematography and set.
87 years is a pretty good lifetime. It's not 100 like my great grandma, but let's face it, that's not an easy age to achieve and 87 isn't that easy either! Rest in peace, Julie.
