What old movies taught me ► Flesh and the Devil (1927)

Lesson #1: Bros before hoes
They should invent the lady version of this quote. Actually, is there a point to do that? Ladies always put their darlings before their friends. Well, except in situations when they realize that darlings won't listen for long how amazing their new dress is, or what a crazy person must one be not to buy another pair of lace up boots while having already five in the locker. :)
Anyhow, I agree it's hard to follow this one when " the hoe" is Greta Garbo.

Lesson #2: You can't sit on two chairs at once
Because, eventually, you'll lose them both. And the only butt which is going to be hurt will be yours.
You should rather sit down (on one chair) and think, think good about what you want.
(If you're indecisive like me, that could take a while.)

Lesson #3: Don't walk your heels over the frozen lake
No matter how pretty they are.
Because you will fall in. And be frozen. And die.

Lesson #4: I'll eat you in two small bites
... can sometimes mean a good thing. ;)

Lesson #5:  Without a sound, you can still be very loud
I always prefer theatre over the movies, I love to see some real emotions and real acting, without any effects. That's way I found this movie so great, the expressions on actors faces are priceless. You can really be brilliant actor without saying a single world.

So, if you're in a mood for a winter love vs friendship story, make some popcorn and hot cocoa and enjoy. :)
