He'd fight for a parking spot at the theatre,
he'd listen to Roger Ebert,
and he'd follow the daily
machinations of George Clooney and Lindsay Lohan.
And then he saw Greer Garson.
Ed saw her in "Goodbye Mr. Chips"
as she turned a lonely
schoolteacher into a lady's man.
He saw her in "Pride and Prejudice"
as she gave Mr. Darcy a lesson in archery.
He saw her in "Mrs. Miniver"
as she anxiously listened for the
sputter of an airplane engine.
And he saw her in "Random Harvest" as she fondled the
cheap little beads that were the colour of her eyes.
