“It’s really interesting now; what is going on. The parts for women don’t exist, you might have noticed. I started to figure that out the other day and I thought; What on earth is going on?; And then I remembered that in the old days, the old days meaning the ’40s and ’50s when the Hays office was the censorship board and you had Barbara Stanwyck and Joan Crawford and Katharine Hepburn playing women judges, women politicians, women mayors, women scientists, blah, blah. You were not allowed to play a love scene in the bedroom with a double bed. It had to be two twin beds, even if the couple was married and regardless of what the scene was, one of the people had to have one foot on the floor. So what happened was since they couldn’t play any real good sexy love scenes, they had to resort to giving women these parts that were sensational in real life. The Hays office was abolished in the name of more liberal sexual attitudes and the rating system came in. Well, now, because men were running the studios, men were writing the scripts and men were the directors, they put us back in the bedroom, and we haven’t been judges or mayors or politicians since. We can’t get out of the bedroom now.”

My new favourite place visited today with my two favourite men.

“If you’re a woman, it’s almost impossible to establish a relationship. You’re too much for everybody. It’s too much. The woman always has to play this role of being fragile and dependent. And if you’re not, they’re fascinated by you, but only for a little while. And then they want to change you and crush you. And then they leave. So,
lots of lonely hotel rooms, my dear.”

And yet another reason I am so inspired by Marina. I imagine in another life, another time we would have got on quiet well.

I’ve got someone addicted to night time swims and during them feeling like I’m in a scene from one of Wes’ movies. It’s the wooden beamed ceiling with the corrugated plastic dome roof…..
