Darling (1965) stars Julie Christie in an Oscar Winning performance as a London model who is the epitome of the beautiful people. She sleeps her way to the top of the London fashion scene, and eventually marries an Italian prince. This film was a stab at the contemporaries it depicted, and was considered an important film. It won a total of three Oscars, was nominated for two others, and cleaned up at the BAFTAS. IMDb readers have it at 7.1.

As the film opens, Christie is married to an underachieving man whose idea of success is mastering a foreign language tape for their next vacation. When she meets a BBC writer and show host, she finds him irresistible. She finally wins him away from is wife, only to find a rich TV film producer. When she finally marries the older Italian prince, she discovers that, somewhere along the way, she has misplaced her dignity and happiness.

In an odd scene near the end, Christie strips facing a mirror. We get a long look at her buns, and her breasts are visible in the mirror. It is a medium long shot, but this is Julie Christie, arguably the most beautiful woman of the time. There is no doubt that this was her film. Her performance earned the Oscar, beating out Julie Andrews in Sound of Music. While I recognize the strengths of the film and understand its importance in poking fun at the free wheeling 60s jet setters, I found it a very long watch at 128 minutes. Part of the problem is that these are simply not my kind of people, and, like unwanted guests, I couldn't wait for them to go away. This is, obviously, a minority view. A little humor would have helped, and the 60s music was markedly absent, which is odd for a social satire. This is a C+. If it is your sort of drama, it is very well made, and stars a beautiful woman in an Oscar winning role.

    'Caps and comments by Dann:

    Wild Things has become a formula, and this third of the batch sticks to the formula pretty closely.

    Rich spoiled-brat 18 year-old girl schemes with poor across-the-tracks girl to screw somebody out of a lot of money, in this case her evil stepfather. They have lesbian sex, three-way sex with a male co-conspirator, and eventually get out-schemed by other schemers.

    While Wild Things 2 was a pale imitation of the original, this third effort is pretty good. Every element is there, so of course there's not a lot of surprises, but for some reason it simply works better than 2; the acting is better, the script is better, and it's probably closer to the original than the second one.

    Regardless of how you felt about the second movie, if you liked the original, you won't hate Diamonds in the Rough. I do suspect that some (but not all) of the nudity by the two female stars used body doubles, but even so, they looked great.

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    See You Later, Incubator - Michael Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe testified Wednesday. To the D.A.'s dismay, she said her video defending him wasn't rehearsed, and she wants to be reacquainted with him because "he's my friend." But she did admit she made the video in hopes she'd get to see her kids for the first time in 2-1/2 years, and she lied in praising his parenting skills. She also admitted they never lived together, and she signed away her parental rights in 2001 because her multi-million dollar custody agreement was too complicated and allowed her to see them only for eight hours every 45 days, at a hotel, under a nanny's strict supervision.

  • There! THAT'S how Michael Jackson should be allowed to visit with kids!!
  • And it was impossible to see their faces through the little veils.
  • She'd stand in the parking lot, and he'd dangle them over a balcony railing so she could see them.
  • That's the hard part about selling your children to a suspected pedophile: all the complicated paperwork.
  • Even Lisa Marie Presley is thinking, "This woman is nuts!"

    Good News For Ruben Studdard - Wednesday, Kraft Foods announced that despite 93 years of popularity, the Oreo recipe is being changed. Kraft said they've heard lots of concerns about trans fats, which make baked goods delicious and creamy, but clog your arteries. So after two years and millions of dollars in research, they say they've finally developed a healthier Oreo with no trans fats, but which tastes the same. They say you can still dunk it, lick out the middle or twist it apart, just like the original.

  • Or do what I do: dip them in batter and fry them in margarine.
  • This is great news for all the health-conscious Oreo addicts.
  • It turned out to be simple: they just replaced the trans fats with lard.

    "Don't Tell My Mom!" - Chris Gedge of Old Stratford, England, was on his way to a promotional gig dressed as Darth Vader with two friends in the back seat dressed as "Star Wars" Stormtroopers, when he was pulled over by cops. He said they asked him who he was, and he told them he was "the Dark Lord of the Sith." They ticketed him for not wearing a seat belt.

  • You don't NEED to see his identification....these aren't the dorks you're looking for.
  • They ran a license check to see if that was really the Dark Lord of the Sith's '89 Subaru.
  • They didn't ticket the Stormtroopers...Professional courtesy.

    As Predictable As The Last Two Movies - In a poll by the movie magazine Empire, "Star Wars" fans chose "The Empire Strikes Back" as the best of the movies; Han Solo as the favorite hero, followed by Obi-Wan and Luke Skywalker; and Darth Vader was named best "Star Wars" villain.

  • Darth Vader was both surprised and thrilled.
  • Although the character you'd least like to be stranded on an island with was Jar-Jar Binks.
