Stepford Inspiration

Here’s a clip from the original STEPFORD WIVES (1975 … the remake is terrible.) I may have posted it before … this is one of the best scenes. The protagonist, Joanna (Katharine Ross) confronts her former best friend, Bobbi (Paula Prentiss.) Previously, Bobbi was a lanky, funny, loveable goofball. And now, she’s something out of a coffee commercial… and Joanna discovers why. We echo this scene in various ways in KELLY.

When Joanna and Bobbi first meet:
