From MAD #35, one of Wood's best black-and-white humor pieces. It's always forgotten that as a humor cartoonist he gave Will Elder a run for his money. A mash-up of those things so fun to parody in the 50s: Brando and Tennessee Williams-based Southern Gothic films. Which I first read at 8 years old, in said South. Seemed about right to me. So: Cinderella(obviously), BABY DOLL, THE ROSE TATTOO, STREETCAR, FUGITIVE KIND, CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, all at once. And this is very unkind to Anna Magnani.

Ohhhhhhh-kay. I can honestly say that's one version of Cinderella I've neither seen nor heard of before.

I've heard of that one, I believe - I think it's on the filmsite.org 'best films' list.

Sounds like it, yeah.

You realize I'm now going to have to forget everything you just wrote if I ever want to see the movie? I mean, not that that'll be difficult - I have a memory like a sieve - but still.

Oh, OK. Sorry; it's just that I'm very touchy about that sort of thing. Spoilers are very difficult to avoid these days, and everyone seems so anxious to reveal them to you. They'll watch something or read something, then they'll say 'you'd LOVE that!' and proceed to tell you all about it, complete with what their favorite parts were and their favorite lines of dialogue. Drives me crazy.
