Take My Love

Leslie Caron is exceptional in this movie
The Glass Slipper
I always liked her movies anyway.
Here she plays Ella from the Cinderella story.

Leslie reminds me of this French teacher we had from France.
She also had short curly hair and a special aura of grace and beauty around her.
She was tiny and muscular , very fit and when she walked into a room,
well all eyes were upon her.
Suddenly we all wanted to learn French lol
She was the kind of lady we only see in movies.

It was a sad day when we came to school and were told that she died
coming back from skiing in the Laurentians.
I wish I could remember her name .
We had her for such a short time but we all cried like she was a
member of the family.
It was a sad loss. She died far away from home and
she had everything to live for.
It took a while to get over the shock of it.

My Dad never allowed me to go to the Laurentians.
My parents were very strict till I was 18 and then just let me go.
Its funny cause I never got into trouble as much as they could have.
My Dad loved cars and in those days driving 120 MILES per HOUR
was nothing. Try doing that today.
Back then we saw our parents as Gods. They could do no wrong.
 Today looking back, mine
were just two normal people
making mistakes like every one else.

Have a good one.

I am going to try to watch this. I love movies from this era. The escapism and magic seem to me the point of watching a movie!

Sandy I too love escapism and magic movies lol
Today most are just violence and gore giving people ideas on how to do bad things. I just don't get why directors make movies like this.They are totally classless.
