From Here to Eternity

Why can't they make a military movie like that anymore?

So I'll admit that until tonight I had never seen the American classic movie "From Here to Eternity." All I can say is, "Damn." What a great movie. Of course I got to wondering why can't Hollywood make a movie like that nowadays? And by "like that," I mean a movie inhabited by people whose flaws are because they're people, not because they're in the military.

"...being a cheerleader for something is slightly different from being a principal player."

While that's definitely a "Heh." quote from Lord Trimble, what I would really like to know is "Does she still have the teapot?"

The answer to that question would tell me something about whether she had made a real connection to those women, or was the teapot just a prop for a story line to make her look like she had connected.

So Hillary, do you still have the teapot?
