Mrs Harris on HBO
Tonight, HBO is showing a film called Mrs Harris, new movie about Jean Harris' conviction for the 1980 shooting death of "Scarsdale Diet" Dr. Herman Tarnower. Apparently, near the beginning, Louise Brooks makes "an appearance." Some of the articles reporting on the film have noted, "Barely has the title scrolled across the screen when gunfire erupts in excerpted, classic-movie scenes of Louise Brooks, Joan Crawford, Gloria Swanson and others portraying women pushed to extremes." I don't subscribe to HBO. If anyone does, and has a chance to watch this film, please report back on what it all means.
