A Love Experience

A Love Experience

One of my favorite plays/movies is, “Night of the Iguana” with Richard Burton, Deborah Kerr, and Ava Gardner, among others fine actors. There isn’t much for me to add to the scene I’m about to embed here, except that I implore you to watch it. It’s beautiful and touching. The background is that Gardner is travelling the world and paying for it by doing sketches of tourists. Travelling with her is her grandfather, who is working on his epic poem. Burton is a preacher, at the end of his proverbial rope, and thus can only find a job giving religious tours in Mexico. After a suicide attempt, he is tied to a hammock by Gardner (not seen here, but magnificent in the film). Burton has a bad reputation for being a womanizer…not good for a preacher.

Here they talk about love, and the human connection we all seek. Enjoy.


About Darren W. Lyle

I'm certifiably insane (I have the paperwork), collect old typewriters (got one?) and am 45 years old. I've 3 pets, of course, and have thoughts. Some aren't good, some are. some are funny, some are just there, but I'll post them when I'm of a mind to.
