Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
An old country doctor went way out to the boondocks to deliver a baby. It was so
far out, there was no electricity. When the doctor arrived, no one was home except
for the laboring mother and her 5-year-old child.
The doctor instructed the child to hold a lantern high so he could see, while he helped
the woman deliver the baby. The child did so, the mother pushed and after a little while,
the doctor lifted the newborn baby by the feet and spanked him on the bottom to get him to take his first breath.
The doctor then asked the 5-year-old what he thought of the baby.
“Hit him again,” the 5-year-old said, “he shouldn’t have crawled up there in the first place!” 😳😳
Tuesday’s’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Whoever you are, I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.
Answer: “A Streetcar Named Desire”
Vivien Leigh’s character, Blanche, had indeed always depended on someone else – the majority of those someone’s being men. Men who were easily influenced by her youthful sex appeal. Once the “bloom was off the rose” life became very different for Blanche; so much so, she needed to live in psychiatric facility – rather than with her sister and brother-in-law. Vivien Leigh won her second Academy Award for her portrayal of Blanche DuBois in “A Streetcar Named Desire” and her delivery of that line often made the “best of best” lists of movie quotes.
Theater and movie critics have drawn parallels in Tennessee Williams’ own family members to the characters seen in the play/movie. Williams was especially close to his sister, Rose, who struggled with mental health troubles for many years. Some of her struggles may have been the inspiration for those experienced by Blanche. Sources cite that Williams used revenue from the tremendous success of this play to fund health care for Rose.
