Controversy in High Heels

CONTROVERSY IN HIGH HEELS

There has been a great deal of controversy over Bryce Dallas Howard remaining in high heels during her Claire Dering character’s adventures in “JURASSIC WORLD”.  It grew worse with the release of “MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: ROGUE NATION” in which many film critics (especially male) made a big deal by approving how the Ilsa Faust character portrayed by Rebecca Ferguson removed her high heels during a particular action sequence in the film.  It was their way of making a dig at Howard’s character.

Then I remembered . . . Howard was not the first actress to keep her high heels on in the middle of an action sequence.  I still have memories of a particular scene from a “REMINGTON STEELE” episode called “Steele in the Chips”, when guest star Geena Davis asked Stephanie Zimbalist’s Laura Holt how she managed to keep her heels on, while running for her life.  Miss Holt’s reply?   “Practice”.

Enough said.
