Giant Monday

This morning the woman who distributes Metro newspaper at my subway station said “have a GIANT Monday”.  Of course, she was referring to the Giants advancing to the Superbowl, however, images of the classic film Giant came to mind.

All at once stills stormed my head of James Dean in a cowboy hat, oil wells shooting up to the sky and delicate Elizabeth Taylor roaming around a big Texas ranch.   At 201 minutes the movie is epic and was compared to Gone with the Wind when it was released.   Visually I found the movie exciting or perhaps it was simply the legendary stars that filled every shot.  Either way, it’s a movie worth seeing.

With many cold weekends on the way, it’ll make for a ‘giant’ way to pass the time.
