Film director Bryan Forbes has died "following a long illness", a family spokesman said today.

And that's why you shouldn't follow long illnesses around.

How could you do a thing like that? When I was just going to give you coffee.

I saw the remake before the original. At first I thought the remake was meh, then it made me farking angry after seeing the original.

That was the one and only movie I sneaked into as a kid.

Way too young to "officially" see the movie, so we snuck in by a side door. We little girls found it frightening, but really didn't know why. We also did not understand why everyone was laughing at the part where a robot wife and human hubby were upstairs and she kept telling him he was the best.

Kids were more innocent in 1975, me included. I didn't meet my husband until the following year.

People criticized the director for the women's dowdy wardrobes, but he had it exactly right. Those husbands wanted their wives to look matronly at the garden parties and PTA meetings, and slutty (with huge rack and dead eyes) in the bedroom.

One thing I always wondered about that movie is what would happen as the children started getting older. Would the daughters get replaced as well? Would the robots be aged somehow? I know, it's just a show, I should really just relax etc, but those questions bothered me almost as much as the actual story. It seemed like the sort of cunning plan which would fall apart after about five years, max.

I haven't seen the original version of Stepford Wives in a while but wasn't there a scene where one the friends of the daughter of Katherine Ross' character complains that her mother has changed and doesn't seem "right"?  Of course, I could be getting it mixed up with a scene from the original Invasion of the Body Snatchers since  The Stepford Wives is basically a feminist version of it.
