There are two things in the world I can’t abide: it’s heat and heathens.
Last night, Rob and I watched the 1978 Agatha Christie film “Death on the Nile,” which is a camp masterpiece. Okay, maybe not a masterpiece, but it’s pretty hilarious in that British costume drama way. Angela Lansbury as a drunk romance novelist! Mia Farrow as loon! David Niven as Peter Ustinov’s sidekick! And Maggie Smith as Bette Davis’s dykey maid, who responds to her boss’ suggestion that they take a trip down the Nile with: “There is nothing I would dislike more. There are two things in the world I can’t abide: it’s heat and heathens.” And that’s why I have a new tagline. Hee.
