No, I don't think that's ever been mentioned! Is that the "coat of many colors" that does that?

"coat of many colors"

Hey partner,  I'm ashamed to say that I'm not familiar with this Brokieism  :o.  I don't quite remember the color of the jacket... it might even have been a shirt.  And, this particular detail that I mentioned is truly subtle.  It only swings back and forth very gently.  You can look out for this detail during the big fancy screening in Michigan!  :D  Oooo, it would be so fun to see BBM on the big screen again!

Yes, I am looking forward to it so much. What I mean by the coat of many colors is the green plaid jacket that is hanging in the closet. It is fairly colorful and so some people have likened it to Joseph's coat of many colors. You know Joseph, the biblical Joseph of the "technicolor dreamcoat. (an excellent opera/musical by the way, by Andrew Lloyd Webber, one of his first).

yes, many. I've been thinking about Jack's harmonica after seeing the movie lately...and how Ennis always says the opposite of what he means. He says, "You'll run the sheep off agin if you don't quiet down" when Jack's harmonica playing is reassurring to both the sheep AND Ennis. And then when Ennis says, "I'm sendin up a prayer of thanks...for you not bringing that harmonica!" what he means is that he is thankful to have Jack's song back in his heart!

Watching the movie in Bay City, I was amazed at how many times Jack appears with a bucket, or a bag, or a canvas water bag in the frame with him. I also thought it was pretty lovable how the horses were nuzzling each other in the background when the boys were in the foreground!! These were only a few of the things I noticed. In general, it is so overwhelming to see Brokeback Mountain on the big screen again! I am still recovering!

Now, in Colorado at the BBQ, we are going to be showing the high definition version that just came out! Yee-haw!!

I have been studying this topic today to mine reenactment material for our BBQ coming up in Colorado in May! I'd love to have pictures of these lovable subtle details to post!!

We usually discuss this in terms of the movie, but some of the most lovable things in the story are where Jack transforms himself into Ennis's beloved horses. There is the time when he was "trembling like a wrung out horse," when he was "hauled onto all fours," where he indulged in horseplay and horsing around, and when he was "kicking them to high heaven."
