Memory is an interesting thing
25 September 2004 | by (vienna, IL) – See all my reviews

I watched Beauty and the Beast with my infant daughter and was so taken with it I described it to my wife when she got home that evening. Evidently, my description was vivid enough that over the years, she has become convinced that she actually saw it. My memory of the movie doesn't dwell on any specific scenes but on my impression of the overall effort. Obviously, the George C. Scott/Trish vanDeVere coupling had its own special chemistry for people to react as strongly to the film as many do in the comments.

This is significant for another reason. My taste in films doesn't often move toward this sort of romance (In "Titanic" I couldn't wait for the blinkin' boat to sink) I'd love to find a copy for a couple reasons: first, to see if my memory of the superb performances was indeed accurate, and second, to share it for the second time with my romantic wife... m
