The Bride Wore Red

I was watching a documentary about Joan Crawford the other day and a short clip was played from the 1937 movie The Bride Wore Red. The clip was of Joan delivering the following (unrequited love related) line in a feisty, over-the-top manner. I found it worth sharing. I’m sure the line doesn’t work as well without the performance. Still, it’s quite the spell to cast on your unrequited one…

“I want you to marry her, and I want my love to haunt you…to make you lie awake at night, to burn your heart, to make you sick with pain! I want you to think of me and to ache for me. I want never to see you again!”
