God, that’s so depressing

I am older than Madam Arcati.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Margaret Rutherford, a character actress famous for playing old ladies on account of she was one before she became an actress (she was originally a piano teacher).

Somehow, though, I’d managed to miss the film adaptation of Blithe Spirit. Madam Arcati wasn’t her first film role, but it was her first really successful one (reprising a character she played on stage).

Watched it this weekend and found myself deeply suspicious that the old lady I remembered just didn’t seem that much of an old lady.

She wasn’t yet. She was 53.

Happy Monday, everyone!
