Written on the.. Costume.

Posted by therant in Uncategorized

After viewing Written on the Wind in class, I wondered if anyone saw Marylee wear an outfit twice in 2 different scenes and time. First, she is seen by the river remembering (hearing voices) her childhood with Mitch and Kyle. Later after Kyle dies, Marylee is seen wearing the same outfit trying to convince Mitch that she can testify in court and send him to jail. The scene ends with Mitch saying “How far we have come from the river” and Marylee walks away in tears. . Now, Marylee’s character doesnt look like the type of girl that would wear the same outfit twice. So I have come to the conclusion that the scene where Marylee is by the river remembering (hearing voices, crazy) her childhood is either after Kyle dies and says his last words, “I will be waiting by the river” or after she leaves the room after talking to Mitch. In post production it probably didnt make much sense or ruined the flow of the story to include the river scene immediately after Kyle dies or right before court begins. So the director squeezed the scene in the middle of the film. Did anyone have similar thoughts?
