Monocrome Dreams & The Road to Borneo
My list of family culprits to pin this on is endless. My mother who showed us Laurel and Hardy’s Babes in Toyland every Christmas, or my father who would slap his knee when Abbot & Costello did Who’s on First? My older sister Lisa, the romantic, leaving the Monopoly game unfinished to sit on the sofa all afternoon watching Errol Flynn’s The Sea Hawk or Bogart’s Casablanca. I wanted black and white. I held onto it like a truth.
