This interview with Lauren Bacall has a rather bracing take on the idea of a nostalgic visit to the golden days of Hollywood. (Just don’t take too long to open her chocolates…..)
“Bacall continues, “I don’t think anybody that has a brain can really be happy. What is there really to be happy about? You tell me. If you’re a thinking human being, there’s no way to divorce yourself from the world.””
The interview has some interesting insights into the sting of nostalgia – and what was or wasn’t said in the past.
