I see what martini sees.
The famous Doctor Scanlon,
That was the first movie we bought for our first vhs player. I remember watching it countless times to get the moneys worth. Great movie. I had forgotten about the fishing trip scene.
The music is very soothing too.
I’m too young to have remembered when vhs’s were somewhat new but You remind me of when we got our first DVD player around 99-2000 and the dang machine was so expensive that you could only afford 1 dvd with it so you watch that one movie for 6 months before you get another.
Also reminds me of my dad telling me about watching The Road Warrior on Beta when it came out and being amazed he could slow it down and watch the guy at the end get hit by the truck in slow motion. Anyway enough rambling
One flew over the cuckoos nest is a great film I’d recommend anyone that hasn’t seen it to check it out and check out Ken Kesey’s book “The Electric Koolaid Acid Test”
BTW, that Montavani track needs to be played at maximum volume so that the older people on your ward and the neighbors can also hear it. And put it on a loop.
tom wolfe wrote acid test....
Cuckoo's Nest is a beautiful book... but, my favorite Kesey book is...... sometimes a great notion... also one of my all time favorite films... NEWMAN & FONDA together...
Top 2 Jack movies of all time: One Flew over the Cuckoos Nest and The Last Detail.
I must have seen both of those movies at least 30 times now. Cuckoo's Nest is unique for many reasons. First, the actors never knew when they were on camera as there was a camera on every one of them during each scene and they never knew if they were the focul point or not so they always remained in character. Second, the actors (except Jack) chose to live in the Asylum and study the patients. DeVitto became so authentic that the doctors were afraid that he might have developed a mental issue himself in the process.
Just a great movie even though the issue surrounding the Native America actor caused problems. See, in the book, the Native American was described as being nearly 7 feet tall and well, that is not a trait among Native Americans so they had to search far and wide to find a very tall man. He wasn't an actor, he was a forrest ranger or something and really couldn't act so most of his dialogue and scenes were cut from the movie. That became a problem because unless you read the book, you never got to see him getting abused by the orderlys in the movie and wouldn't understand that he was in the asylum because he was never able to stand up for himself. His line of him "not being strong enough" didn't mean much in the movie without that context nor the scenes that were removed.
I wonder why you keep me waiting, Charmaine, my Charmaine.
I wonder when bluebirds are mating, will you come back again.
I wonder if I keep on praying, will our dreams be the same.
I wonder if you ever think of me too ...
I am waiting my Charmaine for you ...
Thanks for the correction I used to have a copy my uncle gave me that he got in the 70s I haven’t read it in a while and got them confused, I just knew kesey had something to do with the Merry pranksters
it is cool to know that there are other people who love all that stuff!
Cuckoo's Nest was my favorite novel for many years, until Blood Meridian bumped it.
