AAAAAHHH, I finally have time to post again. My schedule is so busy (well, I AM the busy one, not the stupid schedule). Wanna take a look?:
06.50 AM I wake up because my cellphone alarm starts ringing ("Benny Hill" theme).
07.20 AM I actually get up (after Benny Hill sounded like 6 times)
07.40 AM I take the bus (yes, just 20 minutes to get ready)
09.00 AM I arrive to Santiago (our capital, the city where I work) and take the subway.
09.30-45 AM I arrive to the TV station where I'm doing my internship.
19.00 PM I leave the office.
21.00 PM I arrive home.
22.00 PM I go to bed and watch "I love Lucy" episodes (like 4 per day)
00.00 AM I fall asleep.
As you can see I just don't have time to post (and I like to complain about it).
Anyway, let's get into business. Team Bette or Team Joan?
What? This is like Team Edward and Team Bare-Chested-Wolf, or Team Angelina and Team Aniston...or...I don't remember more teams, but I'm sure there are more.
I think that both were terrific actresses and I respect them both (I mean, I respect their work, because I've read some horrible things about their personal life). I love "All about Eve" but I also love "Mildred Pierce", so I couldn't choose (well, if you put a gun in my head and make me choose, I'll go for "All about Eve", but you don't have a gun...). Like three weeks ago I saw "Sudden Fear" starring Joan and I enjoyed it very much (if you enjoy watching conspiracy, treachery and people terribly worried because their life is in danger). That last idea didn't fit very well, but I just wanted to recommend that movie.
I know Joan and Bette were almost archenemies, just like Judah Ben-Hur and Messala, or Scar and Mufasa, or God and the Devil, or the Montagues and the Capulets; and they said nice thing to each other like: "The best time I ever had with Joan Crawford was when I pushed her down the stairs in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" or "Bette likes to rant and rave. I just sit and knit. She yelled and I knitted a scarf from Hollywood to Malibu." ...but....I forgot what I was going to say....
Oh, no, I was going to add that their movie together, "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" is great, dark and depressing, but great.
So, wrapping up: a) I have a busy schedule b) I don't like Teams c) I can't choose between these two ladies of the screen...anyway, tomorrow is some religious holiday, so I'm going to be able to post again :)
