That Cold Day in the Park

Synopsis: Robert Altman's sadly neglected film that, along with his later "Images", fits into the unconventional psycho-thriller mold. A bizarre story with Sandy Dennis as a spinster who takes in a handsome young man (Michael Burns) who is pretending to be mute. She imprisons the boy and supplies his every need, including a prostitute (Luana Anders), whom she goes out and brings home for Burns' pleasure.

You know how to play?

Like the music?

I have some discs.

You may want to be listen to one or two.

Are you coming?

Come with me.

My mother had a lot of records

but they are in the guest room.

Mine are here. Something maybe you like.

There's one that you probably love.

I took a course in musicology

and I try to spend half an hour per day

See you listen to things I like.

Want to hear it?

I put it on the plate?

Hello? Hello again, my uncle.


A large envelope?

Wait, do not leave.

I'll watch. Tell me,

where were you sitting?

She was able to slip

into the couch, I'll see.

No, I do not see anything.

Course. I will search the room tomorrow.

Yes, tomorrow. Good evening.

You sleep?

I prepared the guest room.

You can stay if you want.

I do not know if you have a home

away from home. I hope, anyway.

I do not throw you out.

Your clothes will be dry tomorrow.

Here it is hot and there is a bed.

What's more...

It's raining again.

Good night.


For a change some eggs,

I prepared something else.



I made coffee but if you want tea,

I can do.

I have to go do some shopping.

You know where the bathroom

is. Or kitchen if you're hungry.

I should go in an hour.

I bought you the odds.

You have found the jacket Parnell.

This is for you.

Try the pants.

See you there is very fashionable.

I took in a shop for young people.

How's that fine.

I do not really know

what color to choose.

Try the shoes.

I wanted to take the leather but

it would have taken them a try.


If it is...

it is worn without socks.

Stand up.

I look at you.

That's very good, these

colors will go well.

Consider these clothes as a gift.

You can keep leaving.

I take care of lunch.

Like the cold chicken?

In general, I...

Gillian Freeman

Gillian Freeman (born 5 December 1929) is a British writer. Born to Jewish parents Dr. Jack Freeman and his wife Freda (née Davids) in North London, she graduated in English Language and Literature from the University of Reading in 1951. She married Edward Thorpe, novelist and ballet critic of the Evening Standard, in 1955. They have two daughters, the actresses Harriet Thorpe and Matilda Thorpe. One of her best known books was the 1961 novel The Leather Boys (published under the pseudonym Eliot George, a reference to the writer George Eliot), a story of a gay relationship between two young working-class men, later turned into a film for which she wrote the screenplay, this time under her own name. The novel was commissioned by the publisher Anthony Blond, who wanted a story about a "Romeo and Romeo in the South London suburbs". Her non-fiction book The Undergrowth of Literature (1967), was a pioneering study of pornography. In 1979, on another commission from Blond, she wrote a fictional diary, Nazi Lady: The Diaries of Elisabeth von Stahlenberg, 1938–48; Freeman's authorship was not at first revealed and many readers took it to be genuine. Her most recent book is But Nobody Lives in Bloomsbury (2006), a fictional study of the Bloomsbury Group. more…
