Autumn Just Around the Corner
I noticed a few leaves starting to change this weekend. It reminded me of one of my favorite Alfred Hitchcock films, The Trouble With Harry. This charming movie features a very young Shirley MacLaine, John Forsyth, and a great deal of stunning New England fall foliage. The black comedy revolves around the trouble with Harry, which is that he is dead. Half the town seems to think they are responsible for his death; they take turns burying, digging up, and moving poor Harry. There is much rapid-fire, funny dialog, especially between MacLaine and Jerry Mathers, who you may remember as The Beaver. This film is sure to put you in the mood to enjoy the snap in the air and blazing colors of Fall. Check it out!
