My mom always felt that Dr.Zhivago was her favorite movie. As I watch this now, as it is being shown on local Public Television, I can only wonder if she swept over the darker parts of the film and loved the romance.

For a film with rape, and the Russian revolution as a backdrop,crooked politicians, and the hardship of war, I guess it is rose colored glasses that let the prospect of love sneak through.

Of course, an all star cast of Sir Alec Guiness, Omar Shariff, Julie Christie, Rod Steiger, Geraldine Chaplin, just to name a few, definitely hold your interest. Oh wait, as a former history major, the historical background and the various relationships in the plot kept my interest.

It’s just hard putting my mind in my Mom’s place, and seeing only the romance. Funny what the passage of years does to your memory of a movie.

Anyhow Mom, this one is for you!💜I miss you!
