It's hard to believe, but the big screen version of Steel Magnolias is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year and it's coming back to theatres around the U.S. If memory serves me correctly, I saw the movie the night it opened on November 22nd, 1989. To this day, I still recite lines from it. I think my all-time favorite line comes from Daryl Hannah's "Annelle." The line? "Ms. Truvy, I promise that my personal tragedy will not interfere with my ability to do good hair."

Of course, there are plenty of other great one liners in the film. Here's a sample!

I am huge fan of the movie and the women in it. Just last December I flew to Louisiana and visited Natchitoches, the amazing town where Steel Magnolias was filmed. It was really fun walking through some of the movie's most famous landmarks.
