Rhubarb and okra: two dishes for my disposal.

However, strawberry shortcake at this moment would make me very, very happy.

Between 1956 and 1964, when I left home for college, I averaged a movie a week. At that time, Middletown, Ohio, had three movie theaters - at some point, the Strand, where I saw Ben-Hur,  folded, got refurbished as the Studio, and opened with Shirley MacLaine's What a Way to Go! - and there was usually something playing at one of them that might be suitable for my brother Macbeth and me. Occasionally my mother vetoed something; I remember three Gigi, On the Beach, Baby Doll - but her mothering was so passive/aggressive that a lot of things got past her.

At school, my movie going went to hell, and I probably saw an average of maybe three to five movies between September and June and catching up at the drive-in during the summer. After I finished school, I was mostly involved in community theater and community symphony, so I missed a lot of movies and TV programs.

All this is a prelude to why I never saw Hotel; I think I would have loved it.

I just remembered: after my Aunt Jenny saw Suddenly Last Summer, Macbeth and I were forbidden to see that as well.

DR Michael G, thanks for the information on the German camps films. When I was in college, my friend Barbara Peffers took a summer trip to Europe. The group she was with toured Auschwitz. Half way through the tour she became completely traumatized and had to be carried out.

Small world!  I have a brother who married a Lady Macbeth, which makes my brother a Macbeth. 

Maybe they're related or maybe cut from the same cloth.

They say where's there's a will, there's relatives.  :)

I'm wondering if our family was partially to blame.  We should have suspected something and protected everybody the moment we heard my brother was married to a lady named "Lady Macbeth."

:)

Anyway, it's her birthday June 11.

Since we've been talking the last couple of days about families involvement with the concentration camps and WWII, here's more on our family.

Hitler couldn't destroy my dad's section of the Landau family, but Lady Macbeth was able to do that.  The tag line for my stories about Joann could be -

Don't miss HITLER 2
"She converted to Judaism and proceeded to completely finish off the Holocaust survivor family that the Nazi's couldn't finish off."


My father was a Holocaust survivor who lived to 100-1/2, passing away (from Covid) in February 2021. He had written his memories of the Holocaust by hand, planning at the time to form them into a book. We had his notes typed up, and a cousin put Dad's narrative online pretty much verbatim (though occasionally some words were just not legible to us, so instead of guessing what he was writing, we just noted that the specific words here and there were hard to read.  We wanted that to remain entirely in Dad's words.).

 https://www.drohobycz-boryslaw.org/images/intros/families/satri/kodesh/Nats_memoirs_vol_2_and_prayer_for___________family_as_is_on_9-21-2013.pdf

 hoping to add his voice to the cry of "Never again," whether or not we're actually able to create the book Dad had once planned.

My memories may not have as big a target audience as Larry's, of course.  :)


My mom was a Holocaust refugee who came over on a boat at about eight years old, but her parents and sister were not able to get on the boat.  Just as my Dad wanted every detail of his experience with the Nazis known, Mom preferred not to talk about it. 

My mom chose to go with the feeling that, as far as her life in America was concerned , the family (by birth, her aunt and uncle) that took her in and accepted her as their daughter, whose son (by birth, her first cousin) accepted her as his sister - were her parents and brother.  And their families always treated us as Mom being their daughter and sister, respectively.

Today, if my calendar is correct, is Sunday.

Today at 11 a.m., I shall meet my cousin Butch and his fiancee Sharon for lunch.

Afterward, i shall stop at Third Generation Restaurant and pick up my dinner.

Then, it's Zoom time.

I'm in a rut!

I, too, never saw HOTEL back in its day. I was at school, too, and I did go to some new films, but I let a lot of traditional Hollywood fare go unseen. Due to the influence of the people around me, I was thrilling to the likes of THE GRADUATE, IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT, WAIT UNTIL DARK, IN COLD BLOOD, 2001, and MIDNIGHT COWBOY in those first couple of years.

I first saw HOTEL when I got that Warner Archives DVD several years ago, and then not that long ago in my little Preview Harvey marathon. Just those two times. I look forward to another soon, and I'll pay more attention to the music.
