50 Favorite People | Alfred Hitchcock
Fear isn’t so difficult to understand. After all, weren’t we all frightened as children? Nothing has changed since Little Red Riding Hood faced the big bad wolf. What frightens us today is exactly the same sort of thing that frightened us yesterday. It’s just a different wolf.
Though Monty can be the mature, thoughtful, serious father-confessor to whom Liz confides her secrets, he can also be a big, mischievous kid—full of the devil. With most people, he won’t let down the bars long enough to have any fun, but he and Liz would romp like children together. On location they engaged in water fights, sneaking behind each other to duck one another in the water; slugged it out with pillows, and once Liz even rubbed Monty’s nose in the dirt… a liberty he wouldn’t have permitted anyone else.
“Monty’s like a brother to me. I’ve told him everything, even things I’m ashamed of.” - Elizabeth Taylor
MY SPIRIT ANIMALS
Peggy Olson, Mad Men
Just tell the truth, people will respect that. | One day you’re there and there’s less of you and you wonder where that part went. If it’s living somewhere outside of you and you keep thinking maybe you’ll get it back and then you realize it’s just gone. | Why it is that whenever a man takes you to lunch around here, you’re the dessert | I could have had you in my life forever, if I wanted to… I could have had you. | I know what men think of you. They think you’re looking for a husband, and you’re fun. And not in that order. | I don’t understand. I try to do my job. I follow the rules and people hate me. Innocent people get hurt, and, and other people, people who are not good, get to walk around doing anything they want. It’s not fair. |
