GUEST POST- Hitch on the Hump: Pax Romano Visits Mr. Jefferies' Neighborhood
Hey folks. Back again with another great Guest Post for Hitch on the Hump. Today we have a blogger I consider to be quite inspirational. Not only does Pax's site, Billy Loves Stu, take one of the best and most innovative looks at horror, but it's also wickedly written with a razor sharp wit and tons of style. There's some sites I keep up with sporadically, some I catch up week to week, and a few special ones that I have to check out every day. Billy Loves Stu falls into that final category, and that's why I am very proud to have Pax Romano on board for today's Hitch on the Hump. So let's join him as he talks Rear Window and moves into.....
Mr. Jefferies' Neighborhood
You don't know the meaning of the word 'neighbor.' Neighbors like each other, speak to each other, care if anybody lives or dies, but none of you do.
Of course, since he did not know any of these people, he gave some of them nicknames, other's he just acknowledged without granting them a nom de stranger:
· Miss Torso : The curvaceous, blond woman with a seemingly never ending parade of gentleman callers.
· Miss Lonelyhearts : The middle aged woman who is unlucky in love and has a taste for booze and pills.
· The Composer who seems to be having a difficult time coming up with his next piece.
· The Couple with the dog.
· Miss Hearing Aid: a hard of hearing older woman who spends a lot of time napping in the courtyard.
· The Sculptress who creates pop-art-like statuary.
· The Newlywed Couple.
· The Traveling Salesman and his invalid wife (later revealed as Mr. And Mrs. Lars Thorwald).
Thanks Mr. Romano! This definitely gives me a new insight into Rear Window, and I can't thank you enough for taking part in Hitch on the Hump.
