Just been to see Sweet

Just been to see Sweet Smell of Success, a film originally released in 1957, starring Tony Curtis and Burt Lancaster. For its time, this was a very dark movie, featuring violence, corruption, sex and drugs (though never explicitly – apart from one good and short fist fight between the two main characters) – and very compelling it was too.
The only irritation were the two people sitting three rows behind me who would not stop talking. Irritating teenagers? Know-it-all brats? Nope – worse than that. A pair of silver haired pensioner ladies. I was very close to telling them to shut…the…fuck…up at one point.
