James Cain, Luchino Visconti, The Postman Always Rings Twice, and Ossessione
This weekend I plan to stay home and read James Cain's "The Postman Always Rings Twice and then watch Luchino Visconti's first film "Ossessione."
I was never a huge fan of Cain's work, but I haven't read this book since I was a teenager. It was time for me to re-visit my youth in a sense.
On the other hand, Visconti never disappoints me! If I have the time I will also see the Tay Garnett film version with Lana Turner and John Garfield. It seems Garnett was a gag man for Mack Sennett, which is fantastic.
