a movie lives in its own memory world. one such was Martin Ritt's "The Sound and the Fury" which I saw with my best friend Tom -- a Faulkner fan -- when we were 16.
TCM ran the film last nite. it's a mess. but still it was fun to see Stuart Whitman looking so hot. Margaret Leighton -- best rememberd for her stage work -- invests her clichd role with a haunting tenderness. & legendary Ethel Waters has one quick moment in which she transcends the art of acting & simply is her character with an entire life on display in one simple look.
