Emma: You’re listening to the Stunning Mass Podcast, your cozy consolation hear. This week we’re dissecting a favourite Consolation watch film for decor and residential inspiration. That is an ongoing collection for us, and this week’s choice is Father of the Bride, 1991, and Nancy Myers Traditional. It’s important to say what yr as a result of it’s a remake, which I don’t suppose I noticed after I first watched it as a result of I’ve truly by no means seen the unique. So that may be a enjoyable one to do too. Which wouldn’t be a re-watch for me, it might be a primary watch.
Elsie: It’s produced from a film from 1950. After which additionally it was remade like final yr there was a Robert DeNiro father of the bride that you just watched. I didn’t see it however I bear in mind you instructed me about it.
Emma: Sure, I watched it with my husband and he beloved it much more than I did, I feel, and we each beloved it. It’s so cute.
Elsie: Effectively, I can not wait to get to Father of the bride. I feel we’ll most likely do a separate episode sometime sooner or later for half two, which is the like they’re having infants. They’re each so good, I can’t decide which one I like extra, I like them each equal.
Emma: Yeah, I most likely like them each equally, however they’re completely different. I like them for various causes. I really feel like Diane Keaton will get extra time in the second and I actually like that. She’s nice on this one too, however I don’t know. Anyway, in the event you’ve by no means seen this one, we’ll let you know slightly bit in regards to the plot. You can too Google it, however primarily it facilities round George Banks, performed by Steve Martin, who’s a father. His daughter form of shortly and unexpectedly will get engaged and he’s having a tough time letting her develop up, and that’s form of what’s occurring in his life. So he’s the daddy of the bride and so they determine to have the marriage at their home, of their yard. And he’s coping with his daughter rising up, accepting this younger man who’s gonna be a son-in-law paying for the marriage and form of all of the like humorous little, you already know, properly I’m the daddy of the bride, I gotta pay for, you already know, all these form of, I feel slightly bit quaint, however I additionally perceive it.
Elsie: He’s received this big quantity of complaining in regards to the value of the marriage and cash, which may be very cute. And yeah, similar to Steve Martin having his like freak-out scenes, there’s a really iconic scene the place he begins ripping up the hotdog bun package deal as a result of he solely needs the identical variety of hotdogs and hotdog buns. And I imply, I simply should say upfront, this film brings out my Steve Martin crush like no different. It’s actually intense for some cause on this film. I feel it’s one among his finest healthful film performances. I’ve at all times beloved Steve Martin. We at the moment watch Solely Murders and I really like him a lot, it doesn’t matter what, and Martin Quick as properly. However this film, there’s one thing about it, it’s prefer it was written for, you know the way generally they write a film only for the actor. I didn’t see that within the trivia, however I really feel like they most likely didn’t actually take into account a variety of different actors moreover Steve Martin. He’s good.
Emma: Yeah. I do not know however he’s good at this.
Elsie: So do you will have any recollections from the primary time you watched? I don’t, I don’t bear in mind the primary time I watched it.
Emma: I don’t, I bear in mind rewatching it most likely like 5 – 6 years in the past and my ideas then, however I don’t suppose that was the primary time I noticed it, I doubt it, but it surely might have been. However one factor I bear in mind considering was like, oh wow, narration as a result of it actually opens with a variety of. It actually virtually seems like a ebook as a result of Steve Martin’s character, George may be very like narrating. You understand, we stay on this home we blah, blah. He’s simply very very like providing you with a set of the scene, which doesn’t occur loads in films. I don’t really feel, it’s not tremendous, tremendous widespread.
Elsie: I used to be already crying on his first opening scene when he’s like, I by no means wanna transfer, I really like that we went tenting in our yard. All these little issues that he was saying, oh my god.
Emma: Yeah, he’s reminiscing about all his recollections along with his youngsters, which he additionally has a son who’s not absolutely grown but, so there’s nonetheless like that within the film too. However yeah, he’s simply coming to phrases with growing older and his children growing older and life-changing, which is tough. But it surely’s actually candy. So for me, we’re gonna speak about decor and all that, however I additionally really feel like that is the film, not even simply the Nancy Meyers one, however of all the flicks, that simply feels to me prefer it might have been made in my city. I don’t essentially suppose it’s made within the Midwest or I don’t suppose folks can be like, oh, this feels very midwest.
Elsie: It’s alleged to be a small city in California.
Emma: Yeah as a result of the opposite home that’s like, you already know, the son-in-law, their mother and father really feel much more California. And he drives round, I feel you see palm timber however there’s simply one thing about this home and I simply guess perhaps the household sensibilities and issues, which is one thing that’s everywhere in the nation, but it surely simply felt to me very like, oh, this might be the place I’m from, which I don’t really feel that loads in films to be sincere, particularly in films from sure eras, because it seems like a variety of California, New York, it doesn’t at all times really feel very center of the nation. I by no means really feel like this might have been in Missouri, so it simply has a really basic, might be anyplace very relatable, although the home is kind of huge and wonderful, but it surely simply seems like not a totally unrelatable factor.
Elsie: Yeah, it’s undoubtedly one among my favourite film homes of all time. If I have been dwelling on an infinite funds in LA, that is the film home that I’d strive every little thing to get, it’s so wonderful. It’s such an incredible home, however I feel that our new home, one of many issues I preferred about it’s that I used to be like, it has slightly tiny little bit of father of the bride. I feel it appears slightly bit extra like a special film home. It has slightly tiny bit, and I’ll add extra over time, particularly the picket fence, I feel I can add that this yr. It’s actually a basic, lovely dwelling. I’ll hyperlink in our present notes, there’s this weblog that I like to have a look at known as Hooked on Homes, and so they have a complete submit in regards to the father of the bride home and so they simply do film homes and so they form of simply clarify what’s actual areas, what’s a sound stage. It’s simply form of attention-grabbing for nerds like us. So, yeah, I’ll put that in there and you’ll have a look at photos in the event you haven’t seen it shortly or you must refresh your self. It’s a gorgeous, iconic white clapboard home. So let’s speak in regards to the decor. Oh my God, there are such a lot of good components of it and I’ll say that they do present the inside sort much more within the second film. Once you have a look at the photographs, simply have a look at each of ’em as a result of it’s nice each methods. However my favourite factor about this film is that they present a scene the place the home is roofed in snow, and it’s such as you actually haven’t seen a home till you’ve seen it coated in snow, proper? So the outside of the house, one among my favourite issues about it, has shutters. It’s so cute and it has a variety of vines rising on the entrance of the home, and a variety of flowers rising, which I feel is so basic and exquisite. Anytime I’ve ever talked to a landscaping particular person, they hate it and so they advocate in opposition to it and I suppose it probably has its points. However positive this home, appears so good on there that it simply makes me wanna like develop vines on my home.
Emma: Yeah, I imply, they’re all through the film prepping to have the marriage exterior, or at the very least a part of the marriage is exterior, in order that they’re wanting it to look actually manicured and all that. However I additionally suppose the outside, they do such an incredible job of doing the identical factor with the exteriors, they do the inside, which is, it simply seems like very lived in. It doesn’t really feel like they simply purchased this home, or this film crew simply pulled as much as this new home and it doesn’t actually have a lot character. I don’t even know if it was another person’s home, I don’t know. We’re most likely gonna speak about that within the trivia, however I simply really feel prefer it seems like folks have been dwelling right here for 10, 20, 30 years, it seems like that. It seems like they planted these roses years and years in the past and now they’ve the entire bush. It feels very cozy. I personally am not a lot of a landscaping exterior vegetation particular person as a result of we don’t even mow our personal yard. We rent somebody to do this. I simply would not have a inexperienced thumb, however I do love strolling by folks’s homes who do. So I so respect it and I aspire, however man it’s not my period for it. Possibly it by no means will likely be, I don’t know, we’ll see what occurs in life and hold my thoughts open to it. However I’d like to stroll by this home as a result of I feel it might scent wonderful. I simply suppose it might look lovely and yeah, they present us a scene the place it’s snowy, so that you form of get to see the completely different seasons and that’s enjoyable.
Elsie: Subsequent time we go to LA we must always attempt to take an image there and simply be that loser for one minute as a result of it’s my favourite home. I do know it’s annoying that folks do this, however one time to your very favourite one perhaps.
Emma: Hey, I by no means promised to not be annoying.
Elsie: That’s true. It’s in Pasadena and in keeping with Hooked on Homes, they use two homes to movie. I feel that the yard is a special home after which the entrance yard is that this home. So, the basketball is definitely from the opposite home, however I really feel like that’s an enormous a part of the nostalgia of this home is the scenes the place they’re enjoying basketball collectively and the film has a variety of little flashbacks the place it reveals his daughter Annie as slightly woman, after which he realizes she’s a lady and it’s going forwards and backwards and it’s tugging at your heartstrings. Just lately our daughter requested if we might get a basketball objective at our new home, and I similar to about misplaced it and I used to be like, I’m gonna make it look similar to the daddy of the bride. I form of simply wanna make Jeremy into Steve Martin from Father of the Bride, is that unhealthy?
Emma: No, it’s best to do it. Should you might do it, do it.
Elsie: It’s an aspiration. It’s so romantic. I really like the basketball scenes. It’s one among my favourite stills. It counts as its personal room, I feel as a result of it’s so particular.
Emma: It additionally has the additional advantage of all of the belongings you simply mentioned, but in addition it reveals off the sneakers as a result of he owns a shoe enterprise known as Sidekicks. So that you’re seeing the tennis sneakers as they’re enjoying basketball. However yeah, we additionally had a basketball objective in our driveway rising up. I bear in mind enjoying with our dad, we’d play horse loads. The place you’re like attempting to make the hampers and spell out horse, issues like that. You have been extra into basketball than I used to be, however I’ve recollections of that. So I feel that’s a part of it too, is I’m like, yeah, that’s a factor. All households have the basketball objective within the driveway. That’s not essentially true however on this film, you get to see it and it form of hits dwelling.
Elsie: I find it irresistible. One other favourite a part of this house is the kitchen. It’s talked about usually. It’s form of similar to the idyllic American kitchen, whenever you analyze it whenever you’re actually wanting, it’s very cluttered. It’s not that nice, but it surely’s the sensation that it offers you once they’re having scenes in there may be actually, actually good. So yeah, I actually wanna perceive what it’s that makes that good kitchen feeling.
Emma: Yeah, I agree. Once you actually have a look at it, it’s a huge kitchen however you may form of inform from the skin of the home, it’s not gonna be a small kitchen. In order that’s not essentially stunning. It doesn’t really feel like there are any super-expensive finishes. It’s not like they’ve these loopy marbled counter tops or something. It feels form of relatable, though it’s a very giant kitchen.
Elsie: Kitchens within the Nineties have been actually completely different than now. There have been completely different countertop developments, I feel there are butcher counters. They usually actually didn’t have a stable floor and marble.
Emma: Yeah. It was extra like tiled counter tops. That was extra in.
Elsie: Yeah, it was like tiled or butcher or regardless of the different form of fake-looking marble is known as.
Elsie: Yeah, laminate. Should you actually have a look at nineties films, you actually don’t see granite or quartz or marble until they’re displaying that it’s like an vintage kitchen.
Emma: And even just like the home equipment on this home, the oven and range high appears very nice, I don’t know the model. It form of appeared like a KitchenAid to me, however I don’t actually know. However then the fridge is like this black facet by facet. It doesn’t actually appear like something, all that particular. It doesn’t look crappy or something, however I simply imply all of it appears relatable, good center class, not like loopy fancy, not like, oh, it is a restaurant kitchen and cooks stay right here. It doesn’t actually really feel that method, however on the identical time, it does really feel like an actual household there who cooks as a result of it’s a little cluttered. In a great way, I feel in a homey method, there’s like pans hanging above the island and so they appear like they’ve been used. They don’t appear like a model new set that some set particular person hung up proper earlier than they began capturing. Simply doesn’t all look tremendous matchy, matchy. So it feels actual, although it’s not, it’s a film.
Elsie: Yeah. It’s an excellent feeling kitchen. One other factor that’s form of at all times in a Nancy Meyers film is an outside eating scene, and so they have a gorgeous outside eating scene with candles and it simply each time see them, I’m like, why don’t we eat outdoor with candles? We simply don’t do this and I wanna do this. It’s like an aspiration that’s so attainable. It’s easy, however I simply don’t do this. So yeah, it’s one thing that I actually wish to incorporate.
Emma: Yeah, I wager your women would actually wanna do this too. They love consuming exterior, candles make it much more particular.
Elsie: Sure. Okay. So about the lounge. Just lately I requested my husband, Jeremy, what do you consider one of these couch? And I confirmed him a white slipcover couch, like a Nancy Meyers. It’s form of in all her films. There’s form of by no means some other form of couch moreover these white slipcover sofas. It’s very basic. I don’t see as a lot of my pals utilizing them although. It’s slightly little bit of an old-person factor, proper? I requested him, you already know as a result of they’ve them round and it’s attention-grabbing. It’s undoubtedly an attention-grabbing factor for somebody like me who switched sofas so many occasions, this appears extra washable, one thing completely different, appears extra long-lasting. Looks like it’s not attempting to be the assertion of your room as a result of I’ve a factor for coloured sofas, which doesn’t at all times work out as probably the most long-lasting buy choice. So anyway, I confirmed him the image and he was just like the strongest response. Completely not, he was like, no method and he by no means does that. So yeah, I used to be curious what you consider them as a result of I feel I’m 50 50 truly. I wasn’t attempting to speak him into it, I most likely might have. I used to be simply gauging the temperature and it was chilly as ice. Yeah. I’m curious, what do you consider the white slipcover couch factor?
Emma: I’d like to know extra from somebody who has one or simply opinions, I suppose as a result of my impression is that they might be simpler to wash as properly. So if that’s truly true, then I’m like, Ooh, that’s fairly attention-grabbing as a result of we’re a family that has children and canine and I let Oscar eat snacks on the sofa generally and you already know, we get crumbs, all that. So yeah, I would like issues which are fairly washable. I additionally don’t have a robust sense of what these prices are versus among the different couches that we are inclined to gravitate in direction of. However the principle factor that places me not ice chilly, however extra within the center or perhaps slightly sizzling, is I like the concept the sofa is just not essentially the assertion within the room as a result of I simply are inclined to wanna have artwork or colourful throw pillows, or truthfully, I’m a kind of folks now the place I like wanna put out my Halloween throw pillows after which my Christmas throw pillows, my all yr spherical throw pillow. So I form of like a sofa that’s gonna showcase my seasonal decor and like the opposite issues within the room, I form of preferred that concept. However after I’m procuring, I haven’t shopped for a sofa in fairly a while, however I do form of transfer in direction of the coloured ones or extra of a press release piece as a result of they simply actually stand out. They only look extra attention-grabbing than a boring sofa. I suppose not, these are boring, however you already know, much less of a press release.
Elsie: Yeah. Effectively, that’s attention-grabbing. Within the nineties decor books, you know the way Elise has the nineties decor books factor she does on Instagram? They at all times have them, so perhaps it is rather like a really nineties factor, however I do know they’re at Pottery Barn and locations like that, so I don’t know. I’m keen on our listeners, we’d love to listen to what you consider these sofas as a result of I don’t know, I feel it’s perhaps considerably polarizing. And you probably have them, please ship us a message and inform us what you suppose, if it’s higher, if it’s arduous to maintain clear something, we do not know. We’re clueless. However yeah, I’m inquisitive about our new dwelling, you already know, it’s like slightly extra conventional and I’ve not picked out any kinda couch but, and I must, and it’s like, what do I do? I don’t know. Anyway. Okay, so my favourite second from the entire film, is that if I have been going to make a wall artwork of 1 nonetheless within the bathtub with the swans in it.
Emma: I knew you have been gonna say that, yeah.
Elsie: Oh my god. Yeah, I wish to be an artwork painter. It’s simply so cute, it’s iconic.
Emma: Yeah. It’s the second we have been like, oh man.
Elsie: I find it irresistible. Okay, so different cozy inspirations from the film, could be style, meals, drink, or something. I truthfully suppose Diane Keaton is sort of a fashion icon. I wish to be every little thing about her from all ages she’s ever been in her day.
Emma: At all times and Ceaselessly. Yeah, each film she’s ever in.
Elsie: She’s the final word lady.
Emma: Yeah, she actually is. She really is and she or he appears cute on this film. Not stunning.
Elsie: Considered one of my favourite issues is that the opening credit of the film, the producer and all that is rather like champagne bubbles for like 5 straight minutes and I don’t know, I suppose I didn’t discover it up to now, however this time I used to be like, that’s truly so cute, like cute.
Emma: It’s, yeah. And it actually units the scene for this film’s a couple of marriage ceremony and celebration and romance, you already know? Yeah.
Elsie: Yeah. It’s cute. The opposite factor is the marriage tent so ever since we’ve got been beginning to put together to maneuver to our new dwelling, which does have an acre and a half. I dunno if I’ve mentioned that earlier than, it’s a fairly large yard. I don’t know if I’d wanna say this out loud, however I’ll. Cuz why not? I’m obsessed that I would like one among my children to get married in our yard and I feel it’s from this film. I’m obsessive about it although and it’s like, that’s not an affordable obsession to have as a result of it’s probably not your alternative and also you shouldn’t be into
Emma: Yeah. Forcing one thing like that. Possibly they may, however yeah.
Elsie: And it might be one thing else too.
Emma: What about this although? What if we hire a kind of tents for some form of party? Or, I imply, I’m gonna flip 40 in a pair extra years. We might be Emma’s birthday, a fortieth party, otherwise you and Jeremy have an enormous anniversary celebration in the event you wished to or one thing the place, you already know?
Elsie: I’ll make this type of fortieth party the scale of a marriage, that’s effective.
Emma: Okay, nice. Nice. There’s nothing I really like greater than a variety of consideration on my birthdays.
Elsie: Yep. I’ll provide you with a 10-minute-long awkward toast similar to I did at your marriage ceremony. I’ll do all of it.
Emma: Oh my God. All I imply is if you would like a kind of tents in your yard, I wager we are able to provide you with a cause.
Elsie: Yeah, no, that sounds good. I agree. Just like the scenes with the greenery across the doorways and it’s simply so cute.
Emma: Yeah, we gotta do it within the spring or summer time. It may’t be my birthday now that I’m eager about it. That’s in January. That’s not gonna work. We gotta do one thing within the spring or summer time, perhaps for our mother. Anyway, we are able to discover a cause to place that tent in your yard. Don’t fear about it.
Elsie: Yeah, that sounds actually good.
Emma: We might get some swans too.
Elsie: May we actually?
Emma: I’m positive we might, please. I don’t know what it prices, however yeah, I’m positive we might.
Elsie: It sounds nice. Right here’s my bank card, signal me up. Okay.
Emma: I really like his little automotive, his like sports activities automotive that he drives round. I’m probably not a automotive particular person.
Elsie: What sort of automotive is that?
Emma: I don’t know, yeah, we’d should look it up. It’s so cute. I used to be gonna say, I’m probably not a lot of a automotive particular person. I simply drive a Subaru and I’ve for years and I find it irresistible. Like, I don’t care. I’d by no means get myself a elaborate little automotive. It’s not an indulgence that I personally need, however I do like how a lot he appears to love it and he’s driving round. It’s like his particular little factor, clearly. And I form of similar to that vibe. I get it. After which additionally, I really feel like this film ought to get credited for just like the dad sneakers as a result of he’ll put on this type of particular tennis sneakers due to his shoe firm. However I really feel like that’s the dad shoe look and I really feel like this film may be just like the origin story or one thing.
Elsie: That’s true. How come that folks say that Tom Hanks is America’s dad as an alternative of Steve Martin?
Emma: I don’t know. In all probability Steve Martin’s pissed about it. No, I don’t know.
Elsie: I really feel like he form of earned it.
Emma: You can have a couple of dad. They may each be the dad.
Elsie: That’s true. Why not be like Mama Mia? That’s effective. Okay, so I had down, did this film age properly, or did it not age properly? I feel it aged very properly on the spectrum of Nineties films, which is what we’ve principally been rewatching lately. I feel it’s up there on the very high. I feel it’s very watchable. Even Martin Quick’s efficiency, I don’t know if they might put that in a film now. However I feel it’s so unhealthy that it’s good and it form of works. I don’t know. What do you suppose?
Emma: Yeah, I feel that’s the one factor that I’m like, I don’t find out about that accent alternative or what sort of character he’s doing precisely, however he’s doing his factor, I’m undecided about that with the growing older, I don’t know. After which I additionally suppose it’s simply not as conventional now that, the daddy of the bride pays for the marriage. However I additionally suppose this film doesn’t deal with it, there should not actually a variety of sexist feedback about it. It’s extra, I take into consideration a person who’s growing older and coping with that and seeing his daughter develop up and stuff. So I truly suppose all of that age like rather well and good. However I do suppose in the event that they remade it, I imply they do have a brand new one now, but when they’re making it proper now this yr, a few of that may dialogue and issues would most likely change. However I don’t really feel like something in it makes me really feel like, Ooh, that is so dated and that’s not good. I feel it form of works and ladders as much as the theme of the film.
Elsie: I fully agree. Okay. Do you wanna hear some trivia?
Emma: Sure. At all times.
Elsie: Okay. This one is more durable to seek out a variety of trivia on, however I’ll present you what I’ve. So the primary piece of trivia is that Eugene Levy seems in each movies, Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride, half two from 1995, however as completely different characters in every.
Emma: Yeah, that’s true. That’s humorous.
Elsie: Yeah, I didn’t discover that.
Emma: I didn’t discover that and now you’re saying, I’m like, yeah, that’s true. That’s actually humorous. They only actually preferred working with him. They’re like, we must convey him again. However you already know, we had this completely different character we’d like, so. Yeah.
Elsie: Yeah, I feel if I have been making a film, I’d most likely decide Eugene Levy each single time, it doesn’t matter what. In order that is sensible. Okay, so the daughter on this film is called Annie and within the Mother or father Lure, the Nancy Meyers model, the daughters are named Annie and Halle, that are the names of Nancy Meyers’s daughters. Cute, huh? Sure, so I’ve already mentioned this earlier within the episode, however that is my primary most coveted film home. Really, perhaps I’d give it a tie for, I don’t know. I don’t know, however I’ll say, that is my primary most coveted film home in California. That is the one, it’s similar to, it’s so iconic. It’s so wonderful, and I simply love that it’s an actual home that somebody will get to stay in, whoever they’re, good for them.
Emma: I agree. Yeah, and identical, it may be tied with, It’s Sophisticated, Meryl Streep’s home. However I don’t know. I do really feel like this one feels extra, like might be within the Midwest to me, not simply Southern California, although it’s in California. So I don’t know, however yeah, I really like this home a lot. I really like this kitchen a lot. The whole lot about it.
Elsie: Yeah. It’s a really basic century dwelling. Okay, so that is fairly widespread, however the entire interiors from the film are a sound stage, so none of them are actually in that home. All of it’s simply began from scratch, and I feel they did a very good job. They’re like stained glass and woodwork and it feels very, very genuine for a historic dwelling, particularly styled within the nineties. And yeah, simply the correct quantity of litter. Which I feel makes it really feel much less like a film set and extra like somebody’s actual dwelling.
Emma: Agree. Yeah. They did an incredible job.
Elsie: Okay. So that is only a micro element that I similar to love, however within the first film there may be truly, in the event you look intently within the kitchen behind her sink and stuff, there may be truly cow print tile on the partitions with little cows on it. After which when it comes again for the second film, it’s switched to impartial tile. Isn’t that cute?
Emma: I didn’t discover the cow print tile. Yeah. Now I wanna re-watch it once more simply to see the tile. Yeah, I didn’t discover that. That’s attention-grabbing.
Elsie: After we have been in highschool, one among our shut pals, his mother had a cow-themed kitchen that was a ten, prefer it was not slightly bit cow themed. It was a ten out of 10 cows-themed kitchens.
Emma: I had one other buddy whose mother had a pig kitchen. All pigs. Yeah. Why did my kitchen have a theme? What’s fallacious with me? Now that I’m eager about it?
Elsie: Within the nineties, I feel folks considered their kitchens slightly bit extra like a nursery the place you had a theme and I don’t suppose folks do form of anymore. However yeah, I feel the cow factor is humorous as a result of it’s turn out to be a pattern, once more, like a Gen Z pattern lately, the previous couple of years. And it’s not for me, but it surely’s like I see that it’s there and I acknowledge that it’s trending.
Emma: I prefer it for the nostalgia, I have to say. However there isn’t a method in hell if I had a complete pig kitchen, that Trey would come dwelling and be like, that is completely effective, and I’m not gonna remark about this, there’s no probability.
Elsie: Yeah, it’s fairly refined although, cuz you don’t even actually discover it. However now you’ll, now you’ll see it.
Yeah, the unique Father of the Bride film is from 1950 and it stars Elizabeth Taylor. So I undoubtedly would love to observe that someday. We’ll have to seek out the place it’s streaming and I’d love to observe that. That might be, I’ve by no means seen an Elizabeth Taylor film, I don’t suppose.
Emma: I don’t suppose I’ve both, which is form of loopy, actually. Yeah. I don’t suppose I’ve.
Elsie: We must always do an Elizabeth Taylor marathon. Okay. It’s time to charge this film from zero to 5 white colonial homes. What do you suppose, Emma?
