Early this morning I was working on an idea for the book I'm writing. It didn't pan out--too jokey. But perfect fodder for a blog post. Imagine a remake of your favorite movie, taking modern technology into account. Here are a few possibilities.
Heading to Casablanca with my new husband Victor!
Rick Blaine (reading Facebook): WTF?
From Casablanca (2010).
Mr. Rawlston: Here's a man who might have been President. He's been loved and hated and talked about as much as any man in our time - but when he comes to die, he's got something on his mind called "Rosebud." What does that mean?
Jerry Thompson: Google says it's a sled.
From Citizen Kane (2010).
George Bailey: Where's that money, you silly stupid old fool? Where's that money? Do you realize what this means? It means bankruptcy and scandal and prison. That's what it means. One of us is going to jail - well, it's not gonna be me.
Uncle Billy: Relax, George. I did an electronic funds transfer last night, and it just hasn't been posted yet.
From It's a Wonderful Life (2010).
Celeborn: The enemy knows you have entered here. What hope you had in secrecy is now gone. Eight that there are here, yet nine there were set out from Rivendell. Tell me, where is Gandalf, for I much desire to speak with him. I can no longer see him from afar.
Galadriel: Here, use my cell phone.
From The Fellowship of the Ring (2010).
