The Autumn Leaves (haiku, movie and song) :-)


I ♥ movies from the 40s and 50s!

We were watching a Joan Crawford movie last night: Humoresque (so sad but wonderful) and this haiku and archive post came to mind. 

The Autumn Leaves is a song that I often have running through my mind, especially this time of year. As I mention in this post, it was also a Nat King Cole tune, that my beloved Grandma cherished.

And the movie of the same name is also one that I have never forgotten.Quite a “racy” film for its time (1956) and definitely with some disturbing content.

But, if you are a fan of Joan Crawford and/or movies from the 40s/50s like I am, do check this one out.

It also features a young and oh, so handsome Cliff Robertson.  Also starring, Lorne Greene in a role that is far removed from his later, fatherly image at the Ponderosa Ranch in the Bonanza TV Series. 😉 He’s a real naughty boy in this one!

Have a Wonderful Autumn Day and Hope You Are Enjoying Sunshine Where You Are! 🙂

It’s Still Lovely and Warm, Here In BC.

  1. Wonderful haiku and photo. I love that song too. I’ve never seen the movie though.

  2. We like old movies, too, Geraldine, and your haiku and photo are beautiful. I don’t remember seeing this movie, but we’ll have to check it out. Our weather is still warm, too, although the mornings and evenings have cooled off. I’m ready for some cooler weather…have a good weekend! ♥

  3. Such a beautiful haiku! It is just starting to cool off here and the trees are just starting to turn. 🙂

  4. Thanks Joe! 🙂

    And thank you Rose. Your comments ended up in my spam filter, go figure??? ;-(

    I LOVE old movies Lauren, especially those from the 40s. The Autumn Leaves is quite the movie….it is disturbing in some respects but very entertaining too. Let me know if you check it out. It’s still warm here too but cools off nicely for sleeping at night. What a relief after the long hot summer. And a great weekend to you too!

    thanks Ruinwen, and thanks for your suggestions re: my recent knit conundrum, I’m back at it on the weekend. Not much color here on the trees but it is lovely temps. right now.

    Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for your comments and visits, G
