Thsi week will see a Saturday Random Ten, rather than a true FR10. The important thing is, it will be just as fresh and delicious as ever.
Watched Wait Until Dark earlier tonight. It's a clever and creepy little movie, matching Audrey Hepburn who is perfect in that she initially seems too wimpy to even watch this movie, much less star in it; with Alan Arkin, who's not a loveable rebel this time so much as a demon escaped from Hell. Something tells me that if this story were filmed today it would be done a lot more ham-handedly. In fact it's basically already happened. Panic Room, from about ten years ago, is basically the same movie screamed through a megaphone.
Also read Mrs Pargeter's Plot, by Simon Brett, this week. Mrs Pargeter is the widow of a smooth criminal, and thereby an unusual detective story heroine. Rather pleasantlyskewed, in this novel.
