Movie Still Monday: Ramona
I grew up reading Beverly Cleary’s Ramona books pretty religiously, so when PBS released a television show version of the stories in 1988 starring a young Sarah Polley, I was super excited and watched every episode.
But little did I know that over 20 years later, I would be re-examining the show and caring more about her stuffed animals than the actual story line.In this scene, little Ramona clutches her crocheted elephant tightly with her stained blue hands. Wouldn’t you?
We all know what happened to Sarah Polley, but what about that elephant? Where is it now? The set designer’s basement? An Ontario film studio prop room? Sarah Polley’s memento shelf?
Inquiring minds need to know.
