Suffer the Fools lightly

"The heart is forever making the head its fool.
                                                                                            -Francois de la Rochefoucauld 
What shall it be? The buffoons of comedy or the cruel trickster that makes a fool? Whats say we do a little of both?

"The Heiress" (1949) - One can't quite blame the lonely heiress played by Olivia De Havilland for falling foolishly in love with the gorgeous and charming scoundrel played by Montgomery Clift - but as a trickster he should have known better what might happen next.......

"Babes in Toyland" (1934) - Oh those silly boys. One can't help but laugh at the slapstick done well, Laurel and Hardy romp through this film with perfect timing full of misunderstanding and confusion. Wonderful.

April Fools to you- May your heart always be 
open to trickery and silliness!
