Once upon a time....

"I am no bird; and no net ensnares me:
I am a free human being with an independent will..."
-Jane to Mr. Rochester (Ch. 23)

I love this story... it is one of my very favorites.
Jane Eyre is the Heroine.
If you haven't seen it yet, you should.

Here is a clip.. you can visit the site here.

I am not sure why it is a favorite....
Yet there it is.

the first Jane Eyre I saw was the 1943 version with my mom.
She passed on her love of classic movies to me.
Thanks mom.

Orson Welles and Joan Fontaine

I mean hello? This was one of those moments I realized that
I could never be a regular kid watching scooby doo.... although I have.

Hi, my name is Carrie Lee, and I am a movie-holic.

Not just any movies... the old ones, the weird ones,
sci-fi, cult classics.... and some just plain bad movies.

I am not too picky... not much for war movies or horror though.
Yeah, they pretty much freak me out.

But give me a movie with English accents or
overly dramatic characters and I am probably sold!

Well, anyways, you get the idea....
Watch it.
