Movie Time

I DID IT AGAIN...writing and then blank my page went blank.  Everything I had been writing for 20 minutes gone!!!!!  My hands are getting lazy I guess, laying on the keyboard and I hit a key that makes everything I have typed and spilled out of my brain is GONE!

Again, I will try...

This past weekend after making the peach cobbler I decided to watch an old movie on my KindleFire.  I selected Spencer's Mountain.  If you have never seen this movie, you should.  It has Maureen O'Hara, Henry Fonda and a young James McArthur.  It is based on the book by Earl Hamner.  Does that name ring a bell, well it should.  Spencer's Mountain spurred the television series, Walton's Mountain, my all time favorite television show.  In the movie, instead of John Boy there is Clay Boy, played by James McArthur, YUM!  The movie and the television show is about family and how they love and hate each other and living during hard times.  How they make it despite all the hardships that can befall a family.  The movie, Spencer's Mountain, has one scene where the elderly father is crushed by a tree and I cry, SOB every single time.  Like a baby I cry.  It is a fabulous movie and one of my favorites.

When done with that one I was not sleepy late Saturday night so while The Hubby slept I watched Please Don't Eat The Daisies, with Doris Day and David Niven.  Really I think they could have cast a better leading man as I didn't think the meshed well, but I love the movie and she sings a song...Please, Please, Don't Eat The Daisies....sing it with me...Cute movie and I finished it yesterday morning.

I am feeling a bit nostalgic in wanting some of the old movies, the good feeling ones.  I yearn for that time, the 50's and 60's.  What's some of your favorite movies?

I like movies that are sweet but a little quirky. My favorite is Cold Comfort Farm, which my husband has never seen. His favorite is Tin Cup.
