Day #21,633

Walk km 4083-4086: running errands

Movie #1224 (#48 this year): Heat Lightning (1934, Mervyn LeRoy)

Back home and back to TCM. Aline MacMahon stars as Olga the mechanic at a desert roadside service station and motel. It's kind of like a Grand Hotel done motel style. Also, since two of the characters at the motel are gangsters, it may have been the inspiration for The Petrified Forest. Aline is excellent and Mr LeRoy does a fine job shooting on a backlot set.
