In a world of strange contradictions, Jeremy is no exception. He’s the Big Bad Wolf – but he’s not big… or bad. He’s actually quite short. Either way, he and Michael are best friends, which is another contradiction because historically, wolves and wandering humans in capes don’t really get along.
No worries though! The Blackwoods are Jeremy’s (and Michael’s) home and they explore it daily, rain or shine. They’re real bros. Wilderness bros.
Hey everyone! Another post for the blog! Hope you have a great day! Still plotting out who we’ll meet next. In the meantime feel free to ask these two bumbling idiots questions!
Olivia de Havilland and Charles Boyer in Hold Back the Dawn (Dir. Mitchell Leisen, Screenplay. Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder, 1941)
“Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder had Olivia in mind for the pat of Emma, but they knew it would take subterfuge to get her from Jack Warner, who still showed no signs of promoting her career. They also knew he never loaned players unless he needed someone. The actor Warner wanted at this time was Paramount’s Fred MacMurray, to co-star Errol Flynn in Dive Bomber, but the Paramount executives played it very cool when Warner read the list of his available talent. They made no reaction to the mention of Olivia’s name, but some days later called Warner to say that she would do, since they had to have somebody in order to start production. Thus Warner was tricked into giving them precisely the actress they wanted at no direct cost.”- Tony Thomas, The Films of Olivia de Havilland
Norma’s comment about happy people having sad feelings too stuck with me more than it probably should have. I felt like I had characters on my side, that the people behind the game understood me, and I’ve been in love ever since.
