Caviar Breakfasts and Champagne Dreams

If you’ve never seen Tommy directed by Ken Russell you are missing the cultural equivalent of landing the man on the moon. And Ann-Margret is unbelievably beautiful. I still don’t know what any of it means, but it looks great. I used to think the writers on Brothers and Sisters based the family names on my family. We have Tommy Walker, Kitty Walker, etc. But, as it turns out, they used Tommy. The original Nora Walker is Ann-Margret in Tommy. I think Sally Field should use the Ann-Margret portrayal as a starting point for her Nora Walker.

    I can’t believe I’ve never seen this. That is the most insane thing I’ve ever seen! IN SANE! Can we watch the movie when I visit? Then maybe I could explain to you what she’s doing with the pillow.
