Day 13: A Guilty Pleasure
Saratoga Trunk (Sam Wood, 1945)
I don't believe in guilty pleasures. There's no way I feel guilty for loving Spice World or Monster in Law. But I suppose the closest thing I can think of that qualifies as a "guilty pleasure" is Saratoga Trunk. I've written about this odd film involving a gold digging Ingrid Bergman and Gary Cooper as her confidante/potential boy toy before. While I don't exactly feel guilty about loving this trainwreck of a movie, I do think it's a bad movie, just so incredibly nutsy its badness becomes fascinating to watch.
