The Porters and the Thorntons are like a second family to you, but just remember; they're not. Don't get too independent. Don't cut off your own flesh and blood. Anybody can disappoint you if you catch them at the wrong time, and the includes you, too, Alfred. I know I'm not what you think your mother ought to be. And I'm sorry if it embarrasses you, and I'm not going to make any excuses.

This is a wonderful movie. Gorgeous Newman, bitchy Woodward, sad Loy, great performances all around, with fabulous sets and costumes. Plus a wonderful story about the marriage of two of the beautiful people, with lots of sex and scandal and romance and fun bitchiness throughout. They had to tone down the sex in the book of course, for a 1960 movie, but if you read between the lines you will be amazed how sexy this movie really is. If you like movies about the rich and how they once lived, even if it's all fantasy, you will like this. Oh yes it's all kind of silly looking at it today, but they don't make movies like this anymore. Watch it for the sheer fun of it. But don't take it seriously. Just let yourself lay back and wallow.
