“Imitation of Life” (1959) is one of my all time favorite movies!
If you’ve seen the move then you know how emotional the ending is & I love it.
My favorite scene is actually the scene where Annie is on her deathbed where she says to Ms. Laura
“My pearl necklace… I want you to give it to Susie…for her weddin’.
Give her a real bridey wedding… with all the fixins.
Our weddin’ day… and the day we die… are the great events… of life.”
Any wedding that I’ve attend since seeing this movie more than 20 years ago, I hear Annie in my head saying these words.
And who doesn’t love a good bridey wedding?
