LINDA’S PROFILE

Favorite films:

Heavenly Creatures
Gone With the Wind
Wings of Desire
A Room With A View
All About My Mother

Guilty pleasures:

The Air Bud movies and any Disney movie with dogs or other critters
Showgirls

Two random movies that I’ve probably seen over 30 times:

Purple Rain
Sixteen Candles

TV on DVD that I love love love!

Battlestar Galactica (and I’m NOT talkin’ ’bout the 1970s version!)
Sex and the City
Freaks and Geeks
Pride and Prejudice (1995 BBC version, of course!)

If I could be an extra in any movie, in any scene, it would be:

In Brazil there is a young woman whom Sam’s mother is trying to set him up with. She is awkward and wears extremely unfortunate headgear. I believe she only gets one line in the film: She, Sam (Jonathan Pryce), and their mothers are eating at a restaurant, and the poor girl abruptly picks up a salt shaker, haltingly asking Sam, “S…s…salt…SALT?” Her mother dismissively says, “Not now, honey,” and everyone at the table looks embarrassed and uncomfortable.

Favorite movie quote:

“All the best people have bad chests and bone diseases. It’s all frightfully romantic!”

– from Heavenly Creatures
