The other night I watched a Documentary called, “Crazy Love“, the photo of these two is taken in 1974. I had no idea what the movie was about, except that it had something to do with Obsessive, perhaps addictive love. So I was immediately curious to see it. Done in classic documentary style the movie has interviews with all of the players. They were odd looking older people who had a lot to say. I kept asking myself, “What is up with those ugly sunglasses Linda Pugach is wearing, and will she ever take them off?”
Well, I soon found out that she was wearing them because, in June of 1959 her X boyfriend, now current husband had hired a man to throw acid in her face. Oh yeah, it’s confusing and sick! I mean can you imagine marrying the man who was responsible for blinding you? And she never does take her sunglasses off, but in one scene we are allowed a glimpse of her eyes through a pair of clear glasses she used to use when she had partial site.
What I found interesting was the candor the couple used to describe their personal experiences, especially Burton Pugach who describes his childhood, which I saw as typical of someone who would grow up thinking obsession was actually love. Linda’s childhood was described by her friends and I found her to be particularly vacant when it came time to express emotions of any kind, with the exception of hate, which she directed at her current husband. The interaction between the two is sick and at the same time fascinating. It demonstrates with great success the lengths someone will go to in the name of love . . .
