I LOVE GERALDINE PAGE IN THIS SCENE


I have been looking for my favorite scene at Youtube for over a year of the movie A Trip to Bountiful. On November 22 (her birthday), 2008, pventertainment posted the entire movie in 11 segments. Once another favorite movie of mine - Amazing Grace - was at youtube, but it has been removed. If you haven't seen A Trip to Bountiful, see it, while it is still up.

Geraldine Page

1924 - 1987

She was
born the year my dad was born and died the year my son was born.

The 6th segment of 11 includes my favorite scene where Geraldine Paige talks about her love of her life - RAY JOHN MURRAY
. But the 5th segment includes the build up to it.

A Trip to Bountiful

Text by pventertainment:
Carrie Watts (Academy Award winner Geraldine Page) is living the twilight of her life trapped in an apartment in 1940's Houston, Texas with a controlling daughter-in-law (Carlin Glynn) and a hen-pecked son (John Heard). Her fondest wish -- just once before she dies -- is to revisit Bountiful, the small Texas town of her youth which she still refers to as "home." The trouble is her son, Ludie, is too concerned for her health to allow her to travel alone and her petty daughter-in-law, Jessie Mae, insists they don't have money to squander on bus tickets. This prompts "escape" attempts each month which coincide with the arrival of Mrs. Watts' Social Security check. Then, Mrs. Watts makes a successful escape and last trip home. Also starring: Rebecca De Mornay.


See F. Murray Abraham presenting the Best Actress Oscar to Geraldine Page for her performance in The Trip to Bountiful - 58th Annual Academy Awards in 1985. This is worth seeing. She beats out Meryl Streep in Out of Africa.

From All Movie Guide: The daughter of a physician, Geraldine Page became a professional actress at 17, winning critical raves for her performance in a 1952 off-Broadway production of Tennessee Williams' Summer and Smoke (which had only recently been expanded by Williams from his one-act play Eccentricities of a Nightingale). Within a year, Ms. Page was co-starring with John Wayne in the austere 3-D Western Hondo. Too offbeat, too mercurial, and much too overly selective to qualify for movie stardom in the 1950s, Page flourished on Broadway during that decade, again excelling as a Tennessee Williams heroine in the 1959 staging of Sweet Bird of Youth. When she repeated her stage roles in the film versions of Summer and Smoke and Sweet Bird of Youth, she was nominated for an Oscar on both occasions. She went on to win two Emmies for her portrayals of Truman Capote's eccentric aunt in the TV productions A Christmas Memory (1967) and The Thanksgiving Visitor (1969), and after seven nominations won a belated Oscar for her lead performance in 1985's A Trip to Bountiful. Married twice, Geraldine Page's second husband (from 1963 until her death in 1987) was actor Rip Torn; and, yes, the couple's country estate was named "Torn Page." ~ Hal Erickson
