Day #21,307

Today's Walk: Robson/Hamilton/Hastings/Cordova/Powell/Gore/Prior/Main
Today's Walk #2: Meetup Walking Group from Main Street Station to English Bay (and return)

Today's Tune: Aranjuez

Today's Movie: The Night Of The Iguana (1964, John Huston)

For years I was under the impression that I preferred action movies to static ones. Not action movies as we know them today (things blow up) but movies with motion. Movies that go places. Now I look over a lot of my favourite movies and it turns out they're stage plays. "Vanya On 42nd Street", "The Petrified Forest" and "Night Of The Iguana". These movies go nowhere. There's no action. The only action is what's going on in the minds of the characters. In this movie, there's plenty of that kind of action.
