Graveyard Humor



The Loved One is one of my favorite movies (yes, I know I have hundreds of favorites). Besides the fact that it is really funny and a scathing satire of American funereal practices, it is loaded with great performances by really good actors. Jonathan Winters, Robert Morse, John Gielgud, Roddy MacDowall, and who could forget Rod Steiger as Mr. Joyboy? Wonderful!

I liked it too :-D
I only saw it once, though - when it was new.

Oh, I have never seen it, but did enjoy the Evelyn Waugh novel. Very mordant.
