As I recall, my 9th grade English teacher, the beloved Mrs. Gilbert, took all of us to go and see this movie. Can you even imagine that happening now?
And we had to dress up. The girls were advised to wear "heels, hose, and gloves."We got on a bus and drove to Tampa to see it. And I can't even tell you how many times I've seen it since.
My first glance at a man's lovely ass. My introduction to a Shakespeare who was living and well and as alive and vibrant as anything that was happening in 1969.
Bless you, Ms. Gilbert.
I still can hardly name a more beautiful movie.
