Beauty vs Beast: The Men In Rosemary's Life

Jason fromMNPPhere on another Monday afternoon with another round of our weekly "Beauty vs Beast"series - today happens to be the 49th anniversary of my favorite movieRosemary's Baby.Roman Polanski's masterpiece (one of his several masterpieces) was dropped from beak of the devil's stork into the world on June 12th 1968,a wailing bundle of joy (with its father's eyes) that became the 8th biggest film of the year,scoring over 33 million at the box office (aka 230 million in 2017 dollars,putting it on par with whatFantastic Beastsand Where to Find Themmade last year) and forever giving pregnant woman something shiny and new to worry themselves about.(All of them witches!)

This being my favorite film we've already devoted one of these columns to it -we faced off the womenfolkwith Rosemary (Mia Farrow) taking on Minnie (Ruth Gordon) last fall.Gordon won,same as the Oscars.亚博主页So this time around let's turn our attentions to their respective partners!There's no time like Right Now for "Sleazy White Men Who Think They Own Women's Reproductive Organs"after all,so I give you Guy Woodhouse (John Cassavetes),star of "Nobody Loves an Albatross"and a world-class creep,and Roman Castavet (Sidney Blackmer),door to door Satan salesman.Choose wisely,your womb will thank you...

PREVIOUSLYWe took a quick trip to the Moors last weekend toput poor Jane Eyre throughthe wringer again but in the end Mia Wasikowska came out on top (and who wouldn't want to come out on top of Michael Fassbender) with 58% of your vote.SaidNick T:

"I'm so happy to cheer for Jane.It's a great performance (yay Mia!),and if Jane won't act as her own hype man then I'll happily do it tor her."

I'm sitting by this bag of garbage at work and like.It's less charismatic,sure,but also less morally repugnant,so it's got the edge.Still,I don't think Roman's creepiness is given its due since his wife is way more fun to watch.I'll give him my first born as tribute.It only seems fair.

Regardless of Guy vs.Roman,this film forever soured me on Chales Grodin as the doctor who turns her back over to those creeps.

All the men in "Rosemary's Baby"except for Hutch (Maurice Evans);are monsters
