June 20, 2005: Beyond Everything In Its Dreadful Dreadfulness
Listen to this show: Pop‑up player!
|Virginia McKenna and Supportong Cast||Henry James's "Turn of the Screw"||--all 110 minutes of it!||CMS|
I got a real soft spot for Gothic horror & romance, and this Henry James nugget from 1898 has got just about all the elements in one place: ghosts, pale, presumptious (and probably incestuous) children (one of each), dead parents, sprawling wood-enclosed private land, evil and scary underclasses, loony servants, a whole lotta guilt, utter self-loathing, and some seriously fucked up nooky. There's Marlon Brando & Stephanie Beecham up top there gettin' it on in Michael Winner's 1971 prequel "The Nightcomers", still light years ahead of
VC Andrews .
"Turn of the Screw" was accompanied by all this stuff:

|Jefferson Airplane||Triad||Crown of Creation||BMG||One hears Grace Slick coo this ode to menage a trois and one may be forgiven a rather immodest private dalliance of the mind. One's revery is soon ripped to shreds by discovery of the song's author: David Crosby.|
