Haiku Reflections: The Autumn Leaves

I’ve had that old tune: The Autumn Leaves  “playing” in my mind for the past couple of days. It inspired me to write this haiku.

This beautiful rendition by Nat King Cole  (my grandma’s favorite singer btw)  was featured in the 1956 film of the same name, starring Joan Crawford and Cliff Robertson . Click to see the trailer  for this movie.

It was considered quite a controversial film for many years: a May-September romance, adultery, mental illness….If you like movies from that era and/or these two actors, you might want to check it out.

I’m a big fan of the golden oldies from the 40’s and 50’s  in all genres, when it comes to movies. 😉 Always have been.  

PS: I found a VHS version of this movie over at Amazon, in case anyone is interested.

After reading  some of the reviews over there, I think I’d like to see it again myself.
