    I’ve enjoyed for years a lot of the crazy, weird and fun stuff on Rarelust., But Rarelust is also beautiful and profound

    I had downloaded “Love Is A Many Splendored Thing” (1955) and sat down to watch it. I knew it was my late mom’s favorite movie, but I didn’t know why. I had seen it years earlier at least once, but as i reflected as the lush opening of the widescreen movie begins, I never previously saw it in widescreen, let alone HD.

    My mom never saw it in its pure form except when it was first shown in theaters where she saw it in 1955. It would have certainly been chopped up, full of commercials, panned and scanned, maybe a double image when she saw it on TV in the years since.

    As I sat and watched it uninterrupted, its beautiful and philosophical tone washes over you. Instantly I recognized my dad in William Holden, who even sounds like him (they came from the same part of the country). My dad also had a history of traveling and going to Korea. Jennifer Jones has the same short, dark hair that my mom wore in those days.The couple seems like a mismatch, but now I realize they were a metaphor for my mom and dad’s romance of the 1950s. It was my mom’s dream of the world as it was, or she wished it could be, in all those years since.

    Thank you, Rarelust for one of my most profound moments in enjoying movies.
