Johnny Depp Ironing

From the archives of All things Ironing - Johnny Depp Ironing.

In the movie Benny & Joon, Sam (Johnny Depp) and Juniper "Joon" (Mary Stuart Masterson), find each other and fall in love.

Filmed in 1993, this romantic comedy is perhaps best known for Depp's humorous physical comedy routines based on silent film comics Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin.

Johnny Depp, clad in a ric-rac-trimmed apron, is an appealing figure as he cooks a stack of grilled cheese sandwiches using an iron.

But would this technique actually work ?
This Web site illustrates one couple's adventures in making grilled cheese sandwiches with an iron "the Benny and Joon way." They discovered that the film may have taken some liberties in cooking accuracy, perhaps for the sake of comedy.
One caution though. Whilst it may be fun to iron your toast in the morning, consider using a protective layer of foil or waxed paper, lest you want burnt-cheese flavoured shirts to wear to the office.
