Hemingway A.D.

image from

 Hemingway A.D.

“The world is a fine place, worth fighting for, and I 

hate very much having to leave it.”

--Ernest Hemingway.

Of all the Hemingway

novels made

into films,

my favorite is


(1977), based on Hemingway’s

posthumously published

1970 novel.

George C. Scott

as artist Thomas Hudson,

embodied the quintessential 

Hemingway character,

both heroic and tragic.



never finished it.

The very words "Islands in a Stream" carry me away to all sorts of interludes and musings!

Looks like one I need to see. I hope you get a chance to see the Ken Burns' series on Hemingway that came out not long ago.

This tugged at my heart, Glenn. Hemmingway was such a figure and his work so powerful. I felt his soul in this, so much sadly unfinished.

This is expertly wrought, Glenn! You have infused the soul of Hemingway so very beautifully into your words ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

I will have to catch that flick! Not much in the theaters these days! ๐Ÿ’•

Ingrid said...

I've never seen it or read the book, but I really ought to do both!

Misky said...

Now that *is* a stream worth contemplating.

George C Scott, one of the greatest! Hemingway ... also one of the greatest! said...

Now I will have to read the book and see the movie. Thanks, Glenn.
