After a Rockabilly start to this Angel chapter, I've got a cover of an oldie to play you may have never heard, by John Lennon from a posthumous album released in the 80's.
I had to play a Beatle at some point, lol!
Then it's the Tale Of Two Movies!
I visited Angel in Pennsylvania a number of times before she became ill.
On one of those trips, I brought with me a movie I thought she would like- City Of Angels.
It had nothing to do with her name, it was just that after going together for a long time, I kind of knew what she might like (I wasn't always correct, lol!).
She flipped over the movie, bought the DVD and watched it many times.
However, I knew it was based on a German movie, directed by Wim Wenders, called Wings Of Desire, but I hadn't seen it at that time.
Well, to me now that I have, there is no comparison.
The Wenders film is in black & white, is much darker in mood, and has subtitles except when Peter Falk is speaking.
It is far superior- although that's just my opinion.
So, I will have scenes from both movies, including my favorite scene from the better one- of course it is with Peter Falk and in English.
What he says about living as a human is so simple and beautiful- just a wonderful moment captured on film.
I do want to thank a dear friend, Denise Decker, for making me listen closer to a beautiful song from the City Of Angels soundtrack I might have overlooked.
