Feature Presentation…MONDAY MOVIE MEME
…The movies like to pay tribute to writers as well. After all, without them we’d be hard up for a good flick. Here are some writers in film that we came up with. Share on your blog movies that feature writers, authors, poets and scribes, linking back here so that others can find you.
There are so many to choose from but these four classics are favorites of mine and they all feature a writer, so I’ll go with these. Yes, I know, these movies make it onto my Monday lists often. So, why haven’t you seen them yet?!
1. Macaulay Connor in The Philapelphia Story James Stewart was the underdog author/reporter that you were rooting for to win the girl. Except you wouldn’t really be upset if she ended up with Cary Grant. It was a win-win for Katherine Hepburn’s character, Tracy Lord.
2. Fred/Paul Varjak in Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) A well-kept author who was trying to write a second book. Did he and Holly Golightly deserve each other? I say yes. Oh, And George Peppard is surprising easy on the eyes (since before this I only remembered him from The A-Team in the 80’s)
3. Joe Bradley in Roman Holiday (1953) Gregory Peck has the story of his life land in his lap and as a reporter in Rome it’s hard to resist the girl, especially when she’s Audrey Hepburn. Again, a writer easy on the eyes.
4. Peter Warne in It Happened One Night (1934) Clark Gable is a reporter following a story and the story happens to be Claudette Colbert. Another handsome writer. I’m sensing a theme here.
I could try to come up with another, but Gage thinks I need to be done. So, is there a classic movie that I missed featuring a writer. Do tell. And please visit The Bumbles to participate.
