Miss Carousel

Howdy! My name is Haley and I reside in the Great State of Texas. I am an eclectic gal full of many interests and obsessions. I enjoy those old classic country tunes and underground country singer-songwriters. I could jazz it up at the Cocoanut Grove, tap my boots at the Grand Ole Opry, and waltz at the court of Versailles. I keenly keep up with politics and am thoroughly liberal. I am a history fanatic! If you think film history is just the beginning you’re in for a handful!

Fare-the-well,

Miss Carousel

And what is anybody’s conscience except a little piece of the conscience of all men that ever lived?

Summer Movie List — 5 / ? → Laura [1944]

I shall never forget the weekend Laura died. A silver sun burned through the sky like a huge magnifying glass. It was the hottest Sunday in my recollection. I felt as if I were the only human being left in New York. For Laura’s horrible death, I was alone. I, Waldo Lydecker, was the only one who really knew her. And I had just begun to write Laura’s story when - another of those detectives came to see me. I had him wait. I could watch him through the half-open door. I noted that his attention was fixed upon my clock. There was only one other in existence, and that was in Laura’s apartment in the very room where she was murdered.”
