Stop Stairing At Me!



For tension, suspense or a chase,
the movies use stairs by the case.
Shoot down from the top
for vertiginous drop,
look up for a lover's embrace.



Just look at how Hitch takes the stairs,
His setting for so many scares.
His characters climb
one step at a time,
their victims to catch unawares.

I always use an elevator because of my dancing ability. Y'see, I'm 'fraid a'stairs.

Nice atmospheric use of pics, Surl.

Good climbing strategy, Norm, but watch out for that "Elevator to the Gallows"...
